CPP buys Bowler Offroad

Bowler Nemesis - Now made - and owned - by CPP

Goodness, CPP Manufacturing are busy little bees at the moment.

No sooner do we learn that CPP has bought Spyker Cars (well, strictly speaking it’s CPP Global Holdings Ltd who are hoovering up with Vladimir Antonov’s money) than we discover CPP has also acquired Bowler Offroad.

For the uninitiated, Bowler are the makers of bonkers offroad vehicles that can probably be best described as Land Rover Supercars. They do what a Land Rover can do offroad, they just do it at something approcahing the speed of a supercar.

Top Gear fans may remember Richard Hammond proclaiming himself a ‘Driving God’ whilst at the wheel of a Bowler Wildcat a couple of years ago, and Bowlers current product – the Bowler Nemesis – is just as likely to make you feel as invincible behind the wheel.

The Nemesis EXR is the road-going version and sports a Jaguar / Land Rover’s Supercharged V8 and will hit 60mph in under 5 seconds. In an incredibly able off-roader. Astonishing stuff.

It looks like Bowler will continue to be engineered and developed at their current site in Belper, but production will be moved to CPP in Coventry under the watchful eye of  MD Brendan O’Toole. Which will do build quality no harm whatsoever.

At this rate Vladimir Antonov is going to be the niche car king.

What else is on his radar, we wonder?
