ANDREW WHITTAM
Founder

With over 45 years of high-tech engineering experience, my career began in Britain as an aircraft engineer.

 

I then began my career as a pilot/engineer in Saudi Arabia, Papua New Guinea, Australia and the Seychelles.

I finished flying in 2021 as a 777 Captain for British Airways.

 

Now I've gone full circle - I'm back inside of an engine.

I've maintained a lifelong passion for vintage car and motorcycle restoration, particularly with Land Rovers, providing me with valuable insights and a network of global contacts.

like all of us, but as an EV they now have

a heart of modern technology."  AW

Founder FAQ's

What's your background?

AW: I began my career in aircraft engineering, specializing in avionics and electronics. Growing up in Cyprus in the 1960s, my family drove around in a Land Rover during my father's time in the Royal Air Force. This early exposure sparked my passion for Land Rovers from a young age, and I've been a classic car enthusiast and engineer ever since.

How are you preserving the classic car aesthetic?

AW: I love the heritage of these Classic Land Rovers; it’s such a simple, beautiful design. And it’s about appreciating all the years on a vehicle, the few little dings on it … it just speaks to me. That might sound a bit romantic, but I think it will speak to my customers as well. I see the great response we get from people who see it on the street. Even children love them, I think they’re just so non-threatening … they’re cool classics that appeal to a really wide range of people. It’s got a few wrinkles and creases like all of us, but - as an EV - it’s now got a heart of ultra-modern technology.

What's the response to going electric?

AW: From a sustainability point of view, it's got to go electric and interest in electric vehicles is phenomenal in the U.S. I think  will inspire a passion for Land Rovers to continue with the younger generation. They're used to modern technology and are really turned on by the fact that these are electric.
