Allesley is an all-new British luxury brand, a contemporary coachbuilder providing low-volume production services to luxury automotive OEMs alongside bespoke limited-edition vehicles to a select group of ultra-high-net-worth private clients.

Based in Coventry, the home of the British car industry, Allesley draws on the UK’s rich and storied history in the realm of coachbuilding, which dates to the early 20th century. Renowned British coachbuilders, such as Mulliner, Park Ward, and Hooper, meticulously crafted bespoke bodies for luxury vehicles, primarily for prestigious marques like Rolls-Royce and Bentley.

These skilled artisans combined exceptional craftsmanship, innovative designs, and traditional techniques to create automotive masterpieces, defining the golden era of British coachbuilding. Despite the decline in demand for custom coachwork in the latter half of the 20th century, the UK has witnessed a resurgence of interest in bespoke coachbuilding, driven by luxury automotive OEMs seeking to further elevate their product offerings, and by passionate collectors and enthusiasts seeking to preserve this venerable art form.

Contemporary Coachbuilders


Allesley’s mission is to elevate the discipline of coachbuilding to new heights. The business is committed to creating the world's finest cars – vehicles which embody excellence in design and craftsmanship. Allesley believes in pushing the limits of innovation while preserving the traditional methods of the craft and delivering exceptional customer service.

Through the business’s passion for perfection and dedication to excellence, Allesley will become the leading name in (remove the) automotive coachbuilding, engaging apprentices and inspiring future generations to continue the legacy of bespoke vehicle creation.

Creating the worlds finest cars


Allesley’s partner is HPL Prototypes. A long-established bespoke engineering company, which proudly celebrates its 25th anniversary next year, HPL’s talented team has worked behind the scenes with top automotive brands for more than two decades. Now, the moment is right for Allesley to emerge as the leading coachbuilder in the UK and globally, offering custom vehicles to private clients and low-volume production for luxury automotive manufacturers. Allesley will seamlessly blend contemporary innovation and cutting-edge technology with a rich motoring heritage.  The company is guided by an expert executive team who have previously spearheaded projects for some of the world's most renowned marques, including Bentley, Aston Martin, McLaren, Lotus, and JLR (Jaguar Land Rover).

Establishing a new coachbuilding brand from scratch presents a formidable challenge, as it requires significant investment in premises, manufacturing equipment, and the recruitment of highly skilled technicians.

Allesley’s foundation is built upon partner HPL’s 25 years of manufacturing and engineering excellence, with clients including the world’s leading luxury automotive OEMs. This strategic collaboration empowers Allesley to leverage over two decades of engineering expertise and resources.
