Emotional Originality

The Petersen motor cars give the customer a chance to experience their dream right from the beginning, in exactly the same way as the original first owners did back in the 1920s including all the different extras, such as interior design, the layout of the dashboard and individual specifications. This is what originality is all about when building an anachronism.


The pay-as-you-build system is also something that appeals to many customers, for it gives financial breathing space while their car is built.


Clients are more than welcome to witness their car's progress and to experience the unique atmosphere in our workshops where traditional craftsmanship and modern engineering combine to produce these particularly demanding vehicles


Reliability is obviously one of the most quoted priorities. There are few people who can afford the luxury of a backup van filled with vintage parts, tools and two trained mechanics when embarking on a rally or holiday.


Petersen cars are rugged and durable and offer real vintage motoring with some of the reliability of any modern vehicle, but that is where the compromise to real vintage motoring stops.


Our dedicated team of craftsmen are proud of the high quality of workmanship consistently produced in our workshop.

After sales

Our after sales service is friendly and sensibly priced. Driving these cars means 'a smile a mile' and here at Petersen Engineering we do everything to keep it that way for their owners. We can undertake repairs, periodic servicing, or complete rebuilds to concours standards.

COVID-19: Notice to all of our customers booked in for our Goodwood track day in June. As government restrictions due to COVID-19 prevents foreign travel we have postponed our track day at Goodwood until 2022. All those who booked and paid for track and hotel for this year will carry their booking forward to 2022, please do contact us with any queries regarding this. Sorry for any inconvenience caused but we would love our international customers to be able to join us all once restrictions have been lifted. 


Featured are all examples of our work. All our cars are built to order for our customers to their own specifications and ideas.


We very rarely have our cars for re-sale - if we do we have information on our For Sale page. Please email if you require any more details about having a car built or parts we supply.
