Back in 1984, when Matt Le Blanc was auditioning for Tomato Ketchup adverts and Chris Evans was a mere assistant to Timmy Mallett, Topgear was founded as a small car accessory shop in Bridport, Dorset.

The ‘other three’ had yet to hear of Topgear, (May and Clarkson were jobbing journalists, Hammond was still at school). And the Stig? Some say he spent the eighties promoting pop videos as MTV’s infamous ‘Moon Man’:  All we know for sure is that the ‘Original Stig’ is now part of the Topgear Tuning team based here in Bridport!

As an early 'online' adopter, established a crucial ecommerce presence selling the finest Alloy Wheels and Custom Parts to car lovers around the globe… ...and we are still doing just that!

The company now employs nearly 40 members of staff and is situated in purpose built premises on the outskirts of Bridport, offering local residents and businesses a fully featured Bosch Service Centre, Wheels, Tyres, Servicing and MOTs at competitive prices.

Bridport is also head office for both Longlife Stainless Steel Exhausts and Powerflow Exhausts - two of the UK's leading custom built exhaust franchises, supporting over 100 dealers both nationally and internationally. Also in Bridport you will find our successful Topgear Tuning division which specialises in electronic tuning and ECU remapping.
