Recreated classics to come from British brand
Caton is a new company that will launch a recreation of a 1950s British sports car at the Salon Privé show on 21 April.
The firm is part of the Envisage Group, which engineers many designs and prototypes for automotive manufacturers. Now it is turning its attention to classics with the first Caton model.
This is the first car from Envisage that will be available for the public to buy and is being created using CNC (computer numerical controlled) machines that allow for tolerances of 0.2mm for the body panels. Caton’s coachbuilders will then make the body using traditional skills and an English Wheel.
Tim Strafford, CEO of Caton’s strategic vehicle building partner, Envisage Group, said: ‘Caton will stand on its own, as a specialist brand, inspired by precision engineering. It will offer ultra-exclusive, highly-aspirational British-designed products within the automotive sector and beyond. It will take loved and cherished cars and objects from the past and improve upon them using new materials and manufacturing processes.
‘We can’t wait to take the wraps off Caton’s first product. It is an exciting precision reincarnation of an icon, one that will set new standards in coachbuilding.’
