595 REASONS …TO LOVE THIS

Great to see the marvellous 595S take its bow at last weekend’s Autosport International.

SUPERB NEW SECURITY MARKING AND VIN SERVICE

Another aspect of Bespoke Vehicle Developments business is their VIN plate stamping and part marking operation. This superb service offers many benefits – not to mention security enhancements – to kitcar owners and manufacturers especially as BVD offers a mobile service too.

He can also supply DVLA-approved stamped VIN plates from a selection of templates or More >

SAFETY DEVICE

The AlcoSense Ultra uses exactly the same professional 200mm2 fuel cell alcohol sensor as several UK, US and European Police breathalysers, taking accuracy, features and ease of use to a new level and is the culmination of three years of research and development.
