XCS Designs ltd


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.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.
