Overfinch In Administration


Range Rover tuner Overfinch has gone bust.

Overfinch Bespoke Vehicles Limited, which has been building go-faster Rangies since 1975, has been placed into administration due to cash flow problems.

According to administrators Wilson Field, "significant one-off non-trading costs," have hit the company in tha past 18 months, which have "severely affected cash flow."

But Overfinch, which makes the super-luxurious Holland & Holland version of the Range Rover as well as providing a range of performance and other tweaks of less dubious taste, isn't dead just yet.


It's continuing to trade while the receivers look for a new owner for it - and the administrators seem confident they can find one.

"Given Overfinch's position as a world leader in its field and with its valuable intellectual property rights, we are confident that the business will be sold within the next few weeks, securing the future of its 20 staff." Roger Hutton, legal adviser to the administrators, told business-sale.com.

Overfinch, which is based in Farnham, Surrey, currently distributes its products to 15 countries, including markets in North America, Africa and Asia.

    They're not in the slightest bit interested in the older stuff.

    Agree with previous posters that Overfinch had a very good reputation tuning the classic and the p38 - loved the 630r, however gone very 80s Zender body kit mad over the last few years.

    Always felt the Lichfield/TVR Power conversions of the late 80s + early 90s were more true to the original spirit of the Rover V8 powered cars. TVR were already discretely supplying uprated engines to armoured vehicles and the 5.0lt came out in the Rangey before the Griffs. That's pretty cool! (in an anorak kind of way)...

    Still hope Overfinch get their soul back though...

    That's probably the best outcome.

    Someone's bought it from the administrators before Christmas.

    No idea who. Could Kahn or someone already involved in Overfinch.
