The Speedback is designed by Alan Mobberley, who has a strong design pedigree, including stints as chief designer at Jaguar Land Rover for 19 years and Peugeot for six years. Priced at $750,000, the coupe is hand built in Coventry, England, and uses traditional British materials and craftsmanship.
Made to order, Speedback offers hand-formed panels and hand-crafted interior, as well as some special features such as a fold-down picnic seat. Because what’s more British than a motor trip and a picnic?
