Group founder, Peter Hilton, said: “This new facility is the future of our business, perfectly encapsulating everything we do here at the group.

“The new state-of-the-art showrooms are the ideal showcase for our perfect restoration work at Hilton & Moss – as well as TVR and Lotus models as part of Car Sales – our two-storey 30-bay workshop further extends our reputation as the largest manufacturer-approved repair facility in the UK, and Hilton Car Storage showcases our absolute passion and attention to detail.

“More than that, though, we wanted to create a real destination for car enthusiasts in the South East and beyond.”
