The Little Car Company welcomes Royal visitors to its state-of-the-art Bicester headquarters

    The Little Car Company, craftsmen of limited edition scaled electric vehicles in partnership with the world’s foremost car brands, recently welcomed HRH Prince Michael of Kent and a number of esteemed guests for an exclusive visit and tour of its Bicester Heritage headquarters.

    The party of guests, which also included owner of the Pearl Collection, Fritz Burkard, were given behind-the-scenes access to The Little Car Company’s studio, seeing first-hand the expert craftsmanship and precision engineering that goes into each of the brand’s scaled, electrified icons. The guests were able to speak with the talented team of expert technicians who hand-build each car to the client’s specification, as well as the engineering team who meticulously design each car to the highest of standards, giving them a fascinating insight into the process behind the cars’ manufacturing. The visitors also met some of The Little Car Company’s placement students, who are combining their studies with practical, hands-on experience before they embark on their careers.

    Hosted by The Little Car Company’s Founder and CEO, Ben Hedley, the guests were then given the chance to enjoy the cars first-hand with an immersive test drive experience. Ferrari Testa Rossa J, Aston Martin DB5 Junior, Bugatti Baby II and the Tamiya Wild One Max, were all put through their paces by the guests on the Bicester Heritage test track facility.

    As well as being immersed in all aspects of The Little Car Company, the VIP guests were also introduced to a number of the neighbouring businesses based at the Bicester Heritage site. A hub of British automotive excellence, Bicester Heritage is home to over 50 specialists, and the visiting party met a number of the teams based there, as well as learning about the special history of Bicester Heritage, and its exciting growth plans.
