Artisan car building at its best
XCS Designs is an artisan car-builder that specialises in creating thoroughly modern and ultra-high quality interpretations of classic two-seater roadsters.
Based in Essex, the company is led by talented master engineer Harvey Rice. He directs a dedicated and forward-thinking team of design, development and production engineers, who work together with highly skilled fabricators and classic car enthusiasts to deliver bespoke, handcrafted vehicles that set new industry standards of build quality and safety.
By design, the XCS operation is small yet perfectly formed: big enough to ensure the vast majority of fabrication is kept in-house for optimal quality control, yet small enough to manoeuvre quickly and provide the sort of attentive, personal service that discerning enthusiasts deserve.
But don’t just take our word for it. XCS invites potential customers to visit the premises where a warm welcome and a personalised factory tour awaits.
As mass-produced cars slowly descend into mobility solution anonymity, XCS Designs is dedicated to handcrafting bespoke, ultra-high quality continuation-style vehicles that deliver the exact opposite: memorable looks, unrivalled performance and good old-fashioned charm.
Every vehicle emerging from our Essex facility is inspired by an iconic roadster, though our progressive approach ensures these all-new cars do not remain in the past. XCS is resolute in its determination to keep traditional body-on-chassis engineering alive while thoroughly updating and refining the methods, materials and associated technologies for modern life.
It is a philosophy that not only celebrates time-honoured engineering techniques but uses these as a springboard for further innovation, the likes of which you will not find anywhere else. Evidence of this includes our patented camber compensation suspension system, which delivers ride and handling that is the envy of chassis engineers the world over.
XCS Designs is an artisan car-builder committed to re-imagining classic machines with a modern twist. From the heroic 427 flagship inspired by the iconic AC Cobra to the lightweight Lotus Seven style Dieci, our philosophy of continual improvement ensures that each model represents the culmination of decades – even generations – of experience in bespoke sports car creation.
