Today marks the 50th Anniversary of Bobby Bell and Martin Colvill signing up with Lotus Cars to make Bell & Colvill an official Lotus dealership.
Although nowadays the Company is synonymous with Lotus, Subaru, Morgan & McLaren, it has been involved in supporting a number of manufacturers with its sales and aftersales activities throughout the years but the one brand they are most associated with will always be Lotus.
Oddball engineering highlights includes producing Alfa Romeo turbos, right hand drive conversions of the Alfa Romeo Spider and the modification of every description of Lotus models. Bell & Colvill produced the Lotus Esprit Turbo two years before the Lotus factory and was the first company to see the tuning and track day potential of the Elise, producing numerous special editions and track day upgrade packages. It’s worth noting that when it comes to modern Lotus cars, if you want to talk to a company that’s raced and tracked just about every derivative of Lotus, Bell & Colvill can usually give you the benefit of hard-won advice on what does or doesn’t work when optimising these cars for the road and the track.
Bell & Colvill have consistently sold more Lotus cars than any other dealer and have supplied cars to satisfied customers from Twickenham to Tobago! In fact, approximately 35,000 cars have been sold from the Bell & Colvill showrooms since 1970.
To celebrate, Bell & Colvill are having a throwback to the 70’s and offering 3 years free servicing and MOT’s on all new and used Lotus cars purchase from now until 17th April 2020.
