SVM - How we got to where we are todayHello there! Welcome To Severnvalley's Page on the forums! :chuckle:
This post is just some background information SVM and what we are all about! The company
Severn Valley Motorsport (SVM) has been specialising in tuning cars for over 3 decades, Since the launch of the Nissan R35 GT-R we are the UKs’ & Europes’ leading authority on producing some of the fastest and highest powered GT-R’s all over the globe!
Severn Valley was formed in 1985 and was formed with Ironbridge Motor Works, under the same roof. Taking on common work on everyday cars from repairs and welding to services and MOT's, the garage was operating very well and handling a climbing client base. At the same time SVM specialized in the tuning scene, most famous in the fast Ford secne, the actual start of SVM's tuning work was on the Datsun 240Z.
Kevan Kemp, the founder of SVM, owned a 240Z that was very well known, eventually ending up being a very unique project, actually hitting 280BhP and when the Ford Sierra Cosworth only hit 204BHP you can imagine the waves it caused back then!
SVM got involved with the rising Ford scene from 1985 through to 1993 and won many national awards, featuring in many magazines and with this SVM became known World Wide for what we could achieve.
And when the R35 hit the roads for the first time, SVM got back onto the global scene breaking records consistently and building some of the fastest R35's on the road such as the Hulk.
It's not all about tuning and big power. We have a strong passion for what we do here at SVM, looking after cars and ensuring they run as well as they are designed to.
Clients often find they would like to upgrade and get higher speed and performance but it's not for everyone. Having been through every nut and bolt on these cars, we are truly confident in being able to solve any issue we come across and build and concepts or ideas people have.
So from basic servicing and repairs, to creating monsters we are simply R35 crazy! Maybe your in the industry yourself, maybe your a GTR owner! Either way you will hear our name mentioned and discussed as one of the elite companies of the world working with these fantastic machines.
We also have researched and developed our own custom parts, which have been developed and built on hundreds upon hundreds of hours blood, sweat and tears!
