Downton Engineering has long been known for providing tuning services, preparing race cars and building special limited edition runs of high performance road cars. This enviable history, particularly with regard to BMC and MG cars - most noatably the classic Austin and Morris Mini - resulted in some legendary results both on and off the track.
Downton developed the ‘S’ version of the classic Mini Cooper engine, to create the ultimate performance Mini, which stormed this little car to victory on the Monte Carlo and numerous other international rally events. When a performance road car was the order of the day, royalty, music and film stars alike chose to buy Downton vehicles - even Enzo Ferrari took delivery of a Downton Mini!
We are now entering a new stage of our development, offering a range of interesting branded Downton products while gradually building an offering for owners of more modern vehicles. Over the coming months we will be expanding our range of Downton branded styling and tuning products for the classic Mini and other classic cars. The web-site is under continual development and we will be adding new products as they become available, so please bookmark us and check back regularly.
