Independent motorsport constructor Prodrive has launched Prodrive Legends, an operation dedicated to the authentication, restoration and support of its historic race and rally cars and cars.
The program – which only covers Prodrive vehicles – includes an authentication service, factory specification engine rebuilds in the company’s new powertrain center, and whole-vehicle work from servicing and race preparation to ground-up restorations to the original specification.
All restoration work, including chassis, engine, transmission and bodyshell preparation, is carried out in-house at the company’s world-class engineering facility in Banbury, UK.
“Quite simply, there is nobody in a better position to rebuild a Prodrive,” said Paul Howarth, head of motorsport operations at Prodrive. “What’s more, we have all the original build data and hold the rights to reproduce key parts of the cars, while sourcing genuine components doesn’t pose an issue thanks to the network of contacts we have established since the early 1980s.”
