Excellent well done Porsche Tewkesbury
A passion for cars and motorbikes from the start
Dick Lovett remains a family-run business. We are as passionate about cars and motorbikes as our founder Dick Lovett was when he set up his first dealership selling motorcycles, known as Ross Motors, in Leicestershire in 1959.
In 1966 he began trading under his own name, and with that, Dick Lovett Specialist Cars was born.
We understand the needs of the modern motorist and our dedicated Sales, Service, Parts and Bodyshop teams are committed to making your experience as straightforward and pleasurable as possible.
Family business with a commitment to quality and customer service
Dick Lovett has retained the Lovett family’s commitment to be the best in the industry, selling some of the finest sports cars in the world alongside quality family and business vehicles and motorcycles.
Our teams pride themselves on delivering personal service that builds lifelong relationships; encouraging customers to return time after time for exceptional service, sales and expertise.
Whatever your needs, we’re here to help - online, in person or on the telephone. Get in touch with us today and see why our customers keep coming back.
The first car my father sold was a Triumph Herald, the second was a Porsche, then it was a Vauxhall Viva. Bentley, Ford, Peugeot 404s, Porsche 904 - he bought and sold lots of different cars all over the country.

About Dick Lovett
More than 50 years of experience as a leading car specialist
Almost ten years after setting up Ross Motors, Dick Lovett set up Dick Lovett Specialist Cars in 1966 from the family home, Fairwater House, in Wroughton.
The company quickly built a reputation for selling top quality specialist cars, such as the Porsche 356, Lamborghini Miura and Ferrari 250 SWB. A year later, his son Peter joined the business and officially took the helm ten years later.
We are proud to be the longest serving official BMW partner in the UK, a connection that goes back to 1968. Today you can find Dick Lovett BMW and Dick Lovett MINI dealerships in Bristol, Hungerford, Melksham (near Bath) and Swindon.

Our history continued
We were thrilled to be chosen as one of the Porsche Centre network’s original partners in 1971 and are honoured to have represented the marque ever since. We have Porsche Centres in Bristol, Swindon, Tewkesbury and Cardiff.
Our relationship with Ferrari stretches back to the 1970s and 1980s and we now represent them in our state-of-the-art dealership ‘The Copse’ in Swindon.
We also represent Aston Martin at our stunning dealership, Aston Martin Bristol, near Cribbs Causeway, which we opened in 2016.
The most recent addition to our family is the purpose-built Dick Lovett Jaguar Land Rover dealership in Melksham. Dick Lovett remains a family-run business today and our continued success owes much to our constant drive to deliver the very best for our customers.
Only the very best cars can be found at our dealerships
At Dick Lovett we buy, sell and service the very best cars and BMW motorbikes at our modern dealerships across the South West and Wales.
We are proud of our long-standing relationships with top marques such as BMW and Porsche, as well as our more recent additions, including Aston Martin, Jaguar and Land Rover.
The last thing we want to be is average. Some of our first customers have passed on their experiences of Dick Lovett to their families and now their families are still our customers today.
