Ian Best, Managing Director

Sole Importer of Westfield for the Middle East
The history of Westfield Sportscars
n the spring of 1982
historic grand prix
competitor and engineer,
Chris Smith decided to
design and build a replica
of one of his all-time
favourite race cars, the
gorgeous 1956 Lotus XI Le
Mans car. Such was the
accuracy and beauty of the
car he produced in his home
garage at Westfield House,
Armatage he was immediately
inundated with requests from
enthusiasts wanting one for
themselves.
By the following Easter in
1983 the company Westfield
Sportscars had been created.
Further demand for the new
Westfield XI replica kit meant
bigger premises and staff
were required and the
fledgling sportscar company
was under way.
From the outset Chris and
business partner and wife,
Eileen recognised the
importance of constantly
reinvesting in product
development. Furthermore
every aspect of the cars from
the chassis to the seats and
interior trim would all be
designed and built entirely inhouse to ensuring both high
quality and value for money.
This is an ethos that
continues today and sets
Westfield head and shoulders
above any other product in
the kit car industry
After the introduction of a
new car, the equally well
received Westfield 7SE, a
decision was taken to fade out
the XI allowing the team to
concentrate on production of
the new kit. The company
continued expanding rapidly
to cope with ever growing
demand, which became even
stronger after the bodywork
was redesigned and
moderised. Westfield was
now firmly established as a
big player.
In 1991, Westfield again
needed bigger premises and
moved to the impressive
factory and office block in
Kingswinford where it is still
manufacturing today. It was
here that the incredible V8powered SEIGHT first caused
the earth to shake. With
monster power and an
incredible 0-60mph time of
3.6 seconds it was Wesfield’s
fastest machine thus far and
received critical acclaim from
the motoring press.
It would be hard to follow a
car like that but Westfield
went on to become one of the
first car manufacturers to
harness bike power. The
small, but very powerful and
high revving machines
enabled incredible feats of
speed and agility and offered
fantastic performance at a low
price.
In October 2004, in
response to a constant flow of
enquiries, the XI was
reintroduced. The car proved
a massive hit once again, with
a full order book and
rapturous praise from new
owners.
In December 2006, the
company entered a new stage
of its development when
British owned Potenza Sports
Cars Ltd acquired it. The
resulting inward investment
will take the development of
the company to new and
exciting levels whilst ensuring
that its products consistently
redefine the quality,
engineering and technology
standards within the kit car
industry.
Westfield remains a family
run, UK based manufacturer.
Its skilled and highly trained
workforce will continue to
produce high quality
craftsmanship in every aspect
of production.

U K Fa c t o r y Fo c u s
Every company likes to tell you they’re great at what they
do, but few take the time to throw their doors open and
prove it. Westfield factory tours are entirely free and lay
totally bare our commitment to innovation, quality and most
importantly value for money. So why not take the time and
book an appointment to visit and judge for yourself?
After that it’s really up to you, but if you’re considering a
car as individual as a Westfield then your decision will be an
informed one based entirely on fact. True quality isn’t as
pricey as others would have you believe!
