The British coachbuilder CPP has come from nowhere (which is in Coventry) to become a major player in the boutique automobile market. It has already been announced that they will be taking over Spyker
and now they will be acquiring another British company, Bowler. If you are unfamiliar with Bowler, they are known for converting Land Rovers into the kind of offroading beasts that can take on the famously harsh Dakar Rally. They might even dethrone VW now.
