The firm is now based in West End Road at the former premises of Donalds Mazda and Volvo.

Managing director Paul Oakley started his niche business locally four-and-a-half years ago, and has moved it from east Ipswich to a purpose-built car dealership premises.

He said: "It has been very well received, we are already selling cars."

There are around 60 cars on the site at any time, priced up to around £60,000, including Audis and Mercedes, Porsche, and BMWs.

One off-the-wall touch is a fully restored orange VW Beetle from 1971.

Mr Oakley said that as well as the showroom the service department was now open.
