It is well known for its dedication, quality and attention to detail.

Proteus relaunch at Race Retro 2007
One year on, Enduro are privileged to be the main show sponsor of Race Retro (the 2007 International Historic Motorsport Show - Stoneleigh Park, Coventry, March 23-25) and will use the opportunity to relaunch the prestigious Proteus name.
Both Proteus and Enduro brands will be represented at the exhibition, as from hereon the Proteus name will be reserved for fully-built, factory-warranted cars and the sale of any other body and chassis units, while the Enduro moniker will be used for the retailing of any separate mechanical components.
Design for 'Jaguar C-Type' Coupe to be unveiled
Jaguar never made a Coupe version of the C-Type, but there will be a Proteus one if the public react positively to the stunning half scale model that will also be displayed at the show. Said Chairman Matt Beverley, "Where there has been the choice of both Roadster and Coupe versions of a sports car (eg Jaguar XK 120, 140, 150, and E-Type), many have opted for the Coupe, if for no other reason than it offers added protection from the elements. It will be very interesting to see people's reaction to the car Jaguar never built."
The stand at Race Retro will be staffed by representatives of Proteus Cars Ltd.
