For 30 years, GTO Engineering, a company founded on an enthusiast’s intrigue, has been dedicated to locating, refurbishing and reconstructing antique collectable classic cars. By fusing the aspirational with engineering expertise the company has developed into one of the world’s leading makers and suppliers of parts.

Decades of refurbishing, restoring and reconstructing the most iconic of machines, is the heritage. A collaboration of skills brought together – from the designers and craftsmen who create each piece to the mechanical engineers who check for accuracy and exact detailing. The company’s appreciation and recognition of exceptional quality is reflected in this range of ‘collectable’ designs.

GTO Engineering was started in the early eighties by Mark Lyon as a specialist sub-contractor working for some of the most prestigious dealers and specialists. By the late eighties, Mark formed a partnership with his wife Rosie and set up his own small workshop in Northwood. After several years, GTO Engineering moved to larger premises at The Old Stables in Harrow and began to take on staff, the first being Mark’s old friend and colleague Kevin Jones, known to many event and race-goers. As GTO Engineering’s reputation spread the business blossomed, and in the 90s the parts operation was commenced to serve the growing demand for increasingly rare parts.
