To all at Great British Sportscars,
I write to share with you my joy and excitement of completing my first drive in my Zero kit car, even the rain could not dampen the initial part of the drive home, when the sun came out it exceeded all my requirements for why I wanted to build my own sports car.
As this was my first venture in the building / assembly of a kit car, the help, support and guidance provided from all GBS staff has been first class and please pass on my gratitude to everyone.
From the initial discussions regarding type of kit, right through to delivering back to the factory for inspection prior to the dreaded IVA (which was nowhere near as bad as you imagine, if you follow the advice given) I have been treated as a valued customer and not just another sale.
The unrestricted access to the workshop, the interest shown on my particular build and the knowledge freely given by all the engineers whether mechanical or electrical prevented any feeling of isolation whilst carrying out the build single handed.
For my part I had set aside Sundays only for the build and managed the entire build in just 13 months, like most new adventures some days were less progressive than others but a quick phone call to seek clarification soon had progress back on track.
I wish I had had the conviction to build one earlier as the whole adventure has been worthwhile.
Once again please accept my thanks, I look forward to meeting up soon and wish you continued success with all existing and future clients.
Great job GBS.
I have been dealing with Great British Sports Cars since I bought my Zero kit in 2010. I have always found the guys and girls up there to be friendly, helpfull and always willing to spare the time to give help and advise no matter how busy they were.
I now have my car on the road, thanks to GBS who put it through the IVA, and I would have no hesitation in recommending GBS to anyone thinking of building a Seven type car. The Zero is a superb car, which I built in a normal garage with just a basic set of tools. It is my first kit car and the only experience I had was in normal car maintenance, so if you are thinking about building a kit car, go and see the guys at GBS - you'll enjoy it."

I bought my Zero Wide Body kit from GBS back in July with no knowledge in mechanics, over the time I have been dealing with GBS I have learnt everything about building a car and now have an almost complete car in the garage to prove it. Everyone at GBS has a passion for what they do and the support and back up has been superb, it doesn't matter what day of the week or time you turn up at the factory you are always made to feel welcome.

I spent a lot of time looking at various different kits and kit manufacturers, whilst everyone wanted to sell me their kit, I worried about the after sales service and support that I would receive once I commenced the build with these manufacturers, as not many manufacturers displayed the level of after sales, spares (including new, used and reconditioned) and support that GBS was offering. GBS had a very organised approach to the project as a whole, not only did they supply my kit, they demonstrated an excellent understanding of the full build progress, from initial design enquiry right the way through to getting the vehicle on the road. The build of my kit has been quite straight forward, even though my package has been Taylor made to suit that of a motorcycle engine project, of which GBS accommodated my requirements very well. The build offers the builder a variety of rewards of learning as well as getting out meeting other like minded members who are currently building or those who have built, all of whom have their own friendly advice and support to offer new members. I am extremely pleased with the level of help and support that GBS have offered me throughout the full project and would recommend them highly to anyone thinking of a new build project.

Having taken the decision to finally build a "sevenesque" kit car I researched all of the major manufacturers. Visiting manufacturing facilities, embarking on test drives and discussing potential costs with each in turn. I visited GBS and found the team enthusiastic, knowledgeable and passionate. The Zero was unbelievable value considering the quality and workmanship combined with a very impressive test drive by Keith Bird. The decision was taken and the order placed, the service didn't stop there and thanks to the efforts and support of GBS I am now the proud owner of a fully built and roadworthy Zero. GBS continue to offer value add by attending track days and sprints, always keen to invite owners along to enjoy the car where it is at it's best. Thank you GBS for a true customer focussed experience, not just when taking money but when enjoying the final result.
