Dick Lovett and BMW’s story

Our founder Dick Lovett established the original business in 1959. He lived and breathed motorcycles, motor racing and sports cars. Dick also had great business acumen and by the mid-1960s, his Wiltshire based sports car dealership was thriving.

Word of Dick Lovett’s reputation for customer service excellence and expert BMW knowledge reached the Bavarian car maker. The rest, as they say, is history.

Our relationship was cemented over the 1970s and 1980s as we showcased new BMW models, and built on our expertise in renovating the classics.

We now offer over 450 new and used BMWs across our four state-of-the-art, dedicated BMW showrooms in Bristol, Bath, Swindon and Hungerford.

From modern classics like the 2008 BMW Z4 M Coupe to the BMW 1 Series and brand new BMW M5, we take pride in every model on the shop floor.

But our special partnership with BMW doesn’t mean we ever rest on our laurels.

With over 800 staff, we have, of course, come a very long way since the sixties. But we are still very much a family run business.

Peter Lovett, Dick Lovett’s son, has been our Chairman since the late 1980s. Prior to this, Peter enjoyed a motor racing career that included representing Wiltshire in the BMW County Championship, racing BMW 323i Saloons.

We achieve this by constantly investing in our staff and striving to further improve our service to you. Our ethos of service excellence ensures we’re worthy of representing that world famous Bavarian badge.
