With our motorsport-based culture, we are renowned for our ability to fast track the development and creation of early Technology Readiness Level (TRL) proof of concept to mid TRL demonstrators.

Our approach creates multi-skilled project teams with a range of experiences and technical capabilities, firstly to understand and then enable them to critique the idea with fresh eyes. We work in sprint cycles with regular whiteboarding and focus sessions to ensure we remain on target and are as efficient as possible with our time.

Sharing the same facilities as Prodrive’s world class motorsport operation means we have one of the most comprehensive low volume manufacturing operations in the UK. Using the latest rapid prototyping, additive layer manufacturing (ALM), and 3D printing techniques combined with traditional fabrication, high-calibre machining, electrical and electronic system production we can create your entire prototype on-site quickly and in total confidentiality.

CASE STUDIES

With the ability to bring together multi-skilled engineering teams in agile teams for individual projects, we have proven time and again our ability to deliver projects that exceed the client’s requirements.

Read about our previous work related to this field of engineering below.

Case Study

4-Wheel Steer Prototype SUV

Prodrive produced a one-off, 4-wheel steer, demonstrator vehicle for an OEM Director level review in just 6 weeks. Exceeding client expectations we used parallel processes including 3D printing to condense timescales.


Case Study

OVSI Ventilator

In just five weeks, Prodrive took the original concept from Cambridge University’s Whittle Laboratory, re-engineered it before producing a full working prototype ready for production.



Case Study

Ford Transit PHEV Dynamic Design

Our unique blend of skilled technicians & engineers meant for Ford's Transit PHEV prototype, technicians solved problems by directly manufacturing parts, fed them back into the master design, significantly shortening the programme.
