The Hendy Story – over 160 years and still counting!

Hendy Group began when Frederick Adolphus Hendy opened a bicycle shop in Whitchurch in 1859. His passion for all things on wheels leads him to be one of the first car owners in the country and go on to retail Benz and Bolle vehicles. Infact, we still have his first 1898 2 Cylinder Benz on display!

Over the course of the following century, Hendy Group enjoyed a number of milestones, including becoming Britain’s first Ford dealer in 1910, and a Le Mans 24hr entry in both 1935 and 1936! During the Second World War, our Vincents Walk and Chandlers Ford premises and staff were used to build Spitfire planes following damage to the original Ministry of Aircraft Production’s nearby factory.

Today, we’re proud to be one of the UK’s largest Multi-Franchise, family controlled dealership networks, covering 8 counties across the South of England, with nearly 2000 employees, representing 21 brands from over 75 outlets.

Hendy Performance has been the specialist performance division of the group for the last 5 years, expanding in 2019 with the acquisition of Westover Sports Cars Poole, and in 2021 with the opening of our brand new facility in Exeter. All Performance sites represent the Lotus brand, with fully approved Lotus Aftersales facilities. Hendy Performance is also the UK’s sole distributor of MOKE International.

The Eastleigh Performance Workshop also boasts a number of additional features and skills including our Hoffman 4 Wheel Alignment System with Zero step entry ramp plus further specialisms including: Tracker Authorised Installer, Motorsport Developments Vehicle Mapping, Engine Rebuilds, Vehicle Undersealing, All make & model tuning and vehicle performance enhancement parts supply and installation with access to dozens of different component suppliers including ProAlloy, Mountune, Mishimoto, Bilstein, Steeda, Cobra Exhausts, Airtec, Forge, Milltek, Brembo, OZ Racing, Remus, plus many more!

Our skillset is not limited to newer vehicles either, we offer full servicing and tuning to all ages of vehicle – from carburettor tuning and balancing on a Jaguar XK120 to cambelt changes on a Ford Model T in recent months! Other recent projects completed by our workshop teams include developing the UK’s first Twin Turbo Mustang V8, the full restoration of a 1966 Mustang, 537hp Focus RS Kit, and Electronic Fuel Injection upgrade to a Sunbeam Tiger V8.

All of our showrooms are undergoing a complete transformation to the latest Lotus Identity, in fact, Eastleigh and Exeter are the first in the UK to receive this treatment in readiness for the Emira and Type 132 in the coming months!

Hendy Performance / Lotus also joins Hendy Land Rover and Hendy Jaguar as approved partners of our supercar club.
