About this HMC MK IV SE

The Holmes Motor Company was founded in 1984 by brothers Graham and Peter Holmes in Stroud, Gloucestershire and they started building their new car which inspired by the Austin Healey 3000. Although the body shape was very similar to the original Healey, the car was an extremely capable modern sports car in its own right and was widely regarded as the finest in its class, so much so that Geoffrey Healey endorsed it himself and the new car would have been launched with the blessing of the Healey family had it not been for a trademark dispute with Jensen in 1989 preventing them from using the Healey name.

Despite this draw back, the 'HMC MKIV' as it was named, had excellent reviews from magazines such as Motor Sport and Performance Car and it was featured on Top Gear in March 1996 by Quentin Wilson who said ‘No Austin-Healey was ever this well built’ and specialist sports car manufacturers like Lotus and TVR should take a long, hard look at the HMC to see how it really should be done.’ The motoring press agreed that this car was far more than an homage to the Austin Healey 3000 and only 167 MKIV cars were built by the Holmes brothers before production ceased in 1999 due to parts supply issues.
Built in late 1997 this beautiful HMC MK1V SE - Chassis No: SA90493GTURT0099 (the 99th built) and Engine No: 47A06489B was supplied new by the UK sole concessionaires 'All Electric Garages' in Birmingham and it was first registered on 16th January 1998.

It is finished in Porsche Midnight Blue Metallic with a Grey Leather interior piped in Blue, Blue Carpets, Blue Mohair Soft top with matching Hood Cover, Walnut Dashboard with chrome toggle switches, Leather Mota-Lita Steering Wheel, Smith's instruments, Electric Windows, Becker Stereo, Cat 2 Immobiliser, 'Tracker', Power Steering, 3947cc 190bhp V8 Engine, 5 Speed Gearbox and sitting on 15" Chrome Wire Wheels.

Sold by us back in October 2005 to the current owner, it has only had 3 former keepers and has now covered a genuine and very low 28,703 miles from new. It comes with a full and comprehensive service history including all books and manuals, full MOT history from new, a clear HPi check and National Mileage Register check, lots of invoices for works and servicing over the years and 2 sets of keys.

This is a beautiful car in excellent condition and we are just in the process of preparing the car for sale and will publish a full set of photographs upon completion. These are very rare cars and really do need to be driven to fully appreciate how good they are!
See the attached road test video by Paul Woodford!

Upon sale the car will come with our own customer care package including a 55-point pre-delivery inspection and 6 months mechanical breakdown Parts & Labour Warranty which can be upgraded and extended at additional cost if required. Car currently MOT'd until September 2023.
