BOWLER NEMESIS JOINS SPYKER AT CPP
Plans confired for Nemesis EXR road car to be built in Coventry
Fresh from its takeover of Dutch supercar company Spyker, CPP Global Holdings Ltd, the specialist coachbuilder based in Coventry, has snapped up Bowler Off Road Limited.
The Derbyshire-based manufacturer of the Nemesis high-performance cross country racer was acquired for an undisclosed price in January, we learn from a new press release. (So yes, we missed the 'scoop' when we chatted to CPP boss Brendan O'Toole about his Spyker plans in Geneva...)
Drew Bowler is managing director (and founder) of Bowler, and says this: "CPP will bring first-rate commercial and manufacturing expertise to our business, ensuring it meets the quality and integrity that our customers will expect. And there are dramatic plans for the business over the longer term."
Further plans will be announced in due course, they say. Intriguing stuff, and certainly good news from the point of view of anyone interested in an EXR road car. CPP has a peerless reputation for build quality and bespoke craftsmanship - which is why it's contracted to make cars like the One-77 for Aston Martin. We look forward to seeing where that new expertise takes Bowler.
