GKD Sportscars has sold the excellent Legend project to Steven Bruyninckx from The Netherlands.

Steven is a diehard BMW enthusiast and owns a classic 635 6-Series and was actually going to buy a Legend kit to build as he had access to an old E36-generation 3-Series. However, as often happens he ended up buying the whole project from GKD boss, Peter Lathrope, who, as it turned out, was looking for the right person to take the project on.

UK customers will deal with Steven obviously, who intends to be present when kits are collected, but all the engineering and technical stuff will be dealt with by Aeon Sportscars, continuing the current arrangement between them and GKD. I’ve always rated the 318 3-Series based Legend very highly and it is an underrated gem, in my view.

Peter also owns the Ginetta G27 and Evolution kits and will continue under the GKD Sportscars banner, and Steven is in the process of coming up for a name for his new business and we’ll bring you more information as this one progresses.

As for Aeon Sportscars, in addition to making the GT3 kit, the company has diversified into classic car restoration along with their existing fabrication work, so handling production and administrative duties for the Legend is a neat fit, for them.
