Adrian Girvin

I bought a 2004 time warp SL500 from Adrian a year ago and it has been the most delightful and exhilarating driving experience in 40 years of driving! Always a dream car, this has proved that one can have ones cake and drive it. I heartily recommend Adrian Blyth as a purveyor of fine automobiles!


This is the second cor I have purchased from Adrian, on both occasions the cars were very well prepared, the service was friendly and non pressurised. Any minor issues addressed quickly under his in house warranty. The price offered for my trade in (another specialists car ) was fair, and the whole transaction was quick and smooth

Don and Carol May

Carol and I recently acquired a beautiful BMW 2 series Convertable from Adrian and would like to express our deep appreciation for having received a `"par excellence" service from him - very old fashioned service! His patience and understanding were much appreciated``.

Ian Griffiths

I've waited over three months since purchasing my Jaguar XKR from Adrian to properly evaluate the car, and I can say that I am just as delighted with my purchase today as I was on the day that I collected the car. Adrian is a nice person to deal with, not pushy, he just shows you the car and asks if you'd like to buy it. We struck a fair bargain and the car has proven to be was exactly as described with no unpleasant surprises. A minor issue was dealt with under the warranty without quibble. I would certainly buy another car from Adrian.

I purchased a Bmw M3 from Adrian the car was spot on ! In fact every car in his showroom was spot on ,fantastic honest guy to deal with , If you want a car you need look no further than Adrian Blyth , if I’m honest 90% of car dealers give you all the old chat like “ the car is 9 years old you have to expect a respray etc etc , but not Adrian you can trust this dealer 100%


I have absolutely nothing but positive things to say about my whole dealings with Adrian. He is very accommodating and a gentleman. Highly recommended.

Chris Thompson

I purchased my F Type from Adrian a while ago, The buying experience was excellent Adrian was very knowledgeable left us to inspect the car without any pressure. When we were ready to test drive the car he allowed us to drive and thoroughly test it. He gave us a good and fair price for our trade in and carried out a couple of minor repairs to the F Type without question. I recently had the car serviced at the main dealer and had to have the bonnet adjusted costing circa £200, whilst not covered under the warranty Adrian was good enough to make a significant contribution. Adrian is a nice guy and will look on his website the next time I am in the market for another car.

Will Wilson

I purchased a Mercedes SLK from Adrian in early May 2021. The car in question was miles better than any other SLK I had seen and had literally covered many less miles than any other SLK I had seen. The mileage was supported by a full Mercedes service & MOT history. The car is perfect and Adrian was always easy to deal with and never pushy answering many of my questions several times. I also received an excellent p/x price for my trade in. I will certainly be contacting Adrian the next time I am in car purchasing mode as likewise I have recommended Adrian Blyth Sports & Performance Cars to several of my friends and family. All in all this was a relaxing and an excellent car buying experience.
Thank you for that experience Adrian! Best Wishes. Will Wilson

Graeme P

In forty years of buying cars this was the best experience to date. My car was well prepared (as all the others seem to be) and a repair issue was dealt with quickly and promptly under in-house warranty. No sales pressure and excellent customer service before and after purchase. Highly recommended,

Andrew Walker

We bought a stunning low mileage XK and are absolutely delighted as it has completely exceeded our expectations. It’s proved to be a worthy replacement for our much loved Alfa GTV which was sadly wrecked on the M25.

The preparation of the car was fantastic with not a single blemish - it's like new. The sales process was a pleasure and we appreciate the warranty as it removes a lot of the concerns of buying a classic car. I’m pleased to report that the process hasn’t changed a bit since I last bought a beautiful Chimaera from Adrian in 2002!


I purchased a Porsche 911 from Adrian a couple of months ago and found him to be an absolute gentlemen in his dealings with my purchase. I did have problems within the first week of taking ownership of the car, nothing that could have been foreseen during the service or MOT. Adrian dealt with the issue promptly and fairly under his warranty. I am delighted with my car and would definitely recommend Adrian to anyone as a genuine and honest person to do business with.

Anthony Harris

Adrian was a lovely chap and my Jaguar was like new.
He is highly recommended!

Michele Phillips

My husband and I purchased a BMW Z3 lately and what a brilliant service from start to finish, totally seamless and the delivery also of the beautiful car was excellent, would love to recommend and would come back in the future if a purchase of a car is needed for us.

KS Haywards Heath

Sometime ago we bought a Saab Turbo cabriolet, it was a pleasure to deal with Adrian. He was straight forward diligent and a proper gentleman. I very recently used the 'SELL YOUR CAR' service which Adrian offers, Adrian guided me through the process and I have to say that the entire service that was given to me was truly outstanding! The presentation/marketing/communication of my M4 had it sold and paid for in a week! Adrian when to great lengths on all levels to secure a sale on my behalf and for extremely modest financial reward. Could not recommend this company highly enough whether your buying of need to sell your car.

Roger Mclachlan

I purchased my slk 350 from Adrian today and it was a pleasure to do with business with him . The car is a pleasure to drive and thanks Adrian for recommending the onslow arms for a very pleasant meal on the way home


Travelled from Glasgow to buy one of Adrian's cars. The car was in mint condition and everything he said it was. Buying from Adrian was very simple and straight forward - a refreshing change from buying from volume dealerships. I would certainly not hesitate in buying from him again. Highly recommended - 5 Star Plus!

Dr Mike Carter

I purchased an SL320 from Adrian a month ago, sight unseen (based upon his excellent reviews). The car was great and the whole process relaxed, but professional. More importantly I needed to make a warranty claim which was handled immediately and payment made directly to a specialist local to me. There is an adage that you should judge the quality of service by the response you get when something goes wrong .... I have it's 5 stars from me!

J.L Hants

I've bought two cars from Adrian over the past few months, and on each occasion found him to be nothing less than a gentleman to deal with; attentive, knowledgeable and courteous. His cars are presented like nothing I've seen before, beautifully prepared and detailed. I would not hesitate to recommend Adrian Blythe Specialist Cars to anyone looking for a pre-owned, luxury or sports car.

P.H Cardiff

It was a great experience buying my car from Adrian, customer service was fantastic. Super professional and he guided me through the aspects of the car.
I would recommend anyone to buy their car from from him.

P.J. Wilts

A thoroughly pleasant experience buying a car from Adrian. He went the extra mile to ensure that I was satisfied with my purchase.

N.H Surrey

I bought a Porsche from Adrian recently. The car was in mint condition and had a low mileage having been purchased and driven in Jersey. The service was friendly and professional and exactly how you want to be treated when buying a big ticket item. The quality of the cars and the service are first rate and I couldn't recommend Adrian and his team highly enough.

S.R (Godalming)

"We can honestly say that we have never had such good service from a company before. Your after sales service is fantastic! Thanks again from two very satisfied Lotus owners."

D.L. (London SW3)

"I would like to thank you for an attentive and accommodating service. You were both very friendly and understanding to our needs and made us feel confident with our choice of an Elise. We never felt pushed into the purchase which was especially nice as we were very nervous about owning our dream car."

R.M ( London EC3)

"Having collected my immaculate Elise 111R at the weekend before last,I just wanted to follow up with an e mail to say how very impressed and happy I was with the outstanding service I received throughout. Your reasonable prices and very high standard of preparation is second to none. Thank you so much for making such an exciting purchase even more memorable."

A and N.S (South Coast)

G.D (Southampton)

"Thank you for the easy process of test driving,selecting,financing and preparing our first Lotus purchase."

M.C (London SW18)

"It was a pleasure dealing with you and your colleagues in acquiring the Boxster. We couldn't fault the service we received."

T.M (Cumbria)

"You said the Boxster was in excellent condition and I think you undersold yourself! It was absolutely brilliant, a six year old car that looked like it came straight off the Porsche manufacturing line! Your friendly approach and helpfulness made the long journey from Cumbria well worthwhile."

S.G (Bordon)

"I wish to thank you for your professionalism,customer focus and assistance with the purchase of this fantastic Lotus 111R. It was refreshing to find a performance car dealer that makes such an important purchase hassle free. We were able to trust you all the way from the initial visit to the delivery of the car. Last but not least I would like to thank you for the state of the art preparation and pre-delivery service of the car."

P.C (Dorset)

"Just wanted to drop you a few lines about the car I have just bought from you .Apart from the fact that any Boxster would be a great car ,this one is in fantastic condition. I am amazed at the quality, it looks new!"


"I am writing to thank you for the superb car you sold me. Your company quite obviously cares about service and quality and I would not hesitate in recommending your garage"


"The overall condition of the Elise is excellent and the preparation first class; you deserve to sell more of them. Also, thanks again to Adrian for coming out to the house to sort out my ineptitude with the alarm - I suspect the entire neighborhood was grateful for that!"


"I was most impressed with the level of service received from you."


"The car is in exceptional condition, just as described on the website, but I was especially pleased with the way I was treated when both looking & actually purchasing. As you know, I live 1.5 miles from a main dealer and in the various times I had visited the showroom prior to meeting you, was not shown a fraction of the help and courtesy that I received from yourselves... also, your cars are equally well presented and noticeably better value!"

M. & K.D.(Southampton)

"Over the years we have purchased all sorts of cars from all sorts of 'prestige' dealers but we can honestly say that we have never felt as confident in the car buying process as we did when dealing with you and your colleagues."

D.C.(Bangor N.I.)

"It was a pleasure to do business with you. Should someone from my part of the world show interest in your Elises I would only be too happy for you to pass on my name etc if they require any assurances of the travel logistics."
