With the 23-year-old boss Merlin McCormack in charge, Duke of London has grown into a veritable classic car world giant in just four years. The 21,000 square foot Brentford facility includes a 30-car showroom, an engine shop and a servicing department, and they’ve just signed a lease for a third property. Although not as profitable as it was a few years ago, the market has found a new confidence, says McCormack, who started working at his father’s classic car restoration workshop Romance of Rust at eight and by 11 was flogging cars on eBay at a profit. Cars to look out for are the ‘poster cars of the kids of the 80s and 90s, such as the Porsche 930 Turbo and the three litre CSL BMWs’.
