Lords Cherokee

“Lords “taking vehicle luxury to another level.

We named the Lords collection after the eponymous cricket ground around the corner from our head office where we have been based for over 25 years

Lords Cherokee

The Lords collection of luxurious coach building and trimming began in 1993 when we produced a highly luxurious version of the Jeep Cherokee. At the time the standard Cherokee was just under £20K and less than half the cost of a Range Rover.

Whilst the John Cooper works provided performance enhancements there was no luxury coach built Mini rather like the Wood & Pickett Minis of the 1960’s and 1970’s We produced our first “Lords Mini “in 2006 and have continued to produce them to order to this day. Typically we create a “mini Bentley “ feel to the interior by installing a real walnut burr veneer dash, fine leather offered in 60’s style fluted stitching , perforated leather inserts or current Bentley Mulinner style diamond stitching.

We offer custom consoles with drinks coolers, deep pile carpets, lambswool rugs and chrome vents and switches from Rolls [...]
