Bristol Cars Limited (in liquidation) (“BCL”)


Bristol Cars Limited (in liquidation) (“BCL”)

We have read a number of reports in various publications regarding the plans of Mr Jason Wharton and his company, Bristol Manufacturing Limited to produce “continuation models” of certain vehicles formerly manufactured by BCL.

It has been stated that he has acquired the IPR of BCL and that he is seeking premises for his operation.

Whilst we have no knowledge of the success or otherwise of his property search, we can categorically state that whilst he has purchased certain tooling and spares at an auction of the company’s assets, he has not purchased any IPR.

What he has done is sought to revoke some BCL trademarks for want of use. Such action has been objected to by us as Joint Liquidators of BCL and by Kamkorp Autokraft Limited, the owner of the trademarks in question. Mr Wharton attempted a similar action in relation to Allard, which failed.

Furthermore, we are at a loss to understand how he intends to produce the “continuation models” to which he refers as he has not acquired the technical drawings to do so. The sale of that IPR is being dealt with by David Fletcher of our agents Wyles Hardy who remains in discussions with a number of interested parties.

For further information please contact Patrick Wadsted, Joint Liquidator, email
