Information about Turner

Turner Sports Cars, a distinguished British marque, was conceived in 1951 by Jack Turner in Wolverhampton. The brand is celebrated for its pioneering lightweight sports cars, epitomizing the post-war motoring spirit that captivated enthusiasts. Turner’s automotive journey began in a modest workshop, where his vision translated into the Turner A30, a car revered for its agile performance and innovative fiberglass body—a rarity at the time.

Throughout the 1950s and early 1960s, Turner cars made waves on the racing circuit, embodying Jack’s philosophy of “simplicity and lightness” which led to several racing accolades, including impressive outings at circuits like Le Mans and Silverstone. Despite their racing pedigree and the creation of several admired models like the Turner MK I and MK II, the company faced financial hurdles, leading to its cessation in 1966.

Today, Turner Sports Cars holds a nostalgic allure in the classic car community. While the company no longer manufactures new models, their legacy endures through a dedicated following and the cherished classics that continue to appear at vintage racing events, symbolizing a timeless testament to Jack Turner’s automotive ingenuity. The marque, though a chapter closed, continues to inspire with its historical significance and racing triumphs.
