Our History

Lawfield and Abbott Automotive was formed by two like minded individuals, both with a passion for engineering. Brian Hosfield was Peter Wheeler’s (Owner of TVR from 1981 to 2004) personal race engineer for 15 years and he also managed the works’ racing team. Brian went on to set up and run the very successful and highly regarded Lawfield Engineering company. Graham Abbott is a dedicated car enthusiast with an appetite for taking on complex automotive projects. Graham has a manufacturing, finance and commercial background, having worked at Board level for a number of multinational companies.

This combination of experience and skills has been brought together to provide a professionally run service that looks after both customers and staff alike. When it comes to vehicle restoration the six strong team have more than 50 years experience across a broad range of marques including Bentley, Lotus, MG’s, Rolls Royce, TVR and many others.

Lawfield and Abbott regularly take on projects from small Insurance repairs to complete restorations destined to enter concours car competitions.


I was delighted by the service offered by Lawfield & Abbott when restoring my classic TVR. Their attention to detail is second to none and they provide excellent value.

I was nervous to hand my car over to a third party, but I had no need to be. The coat of paint provided by Lawfield & Abbott has restored my vehicle to its former glory.

I sent my much loved and long owned TVR S to Lawfield & Abbott for body restoration work and a respray. I am delighted with the finished product. Way beyond my expectations and I was kept updated every step of the way.

…..My car has been returned to me after having some small stress crack repairs, fibreglass reinforcement and a full re-spray and I can confirm that their workmanship is still first-class. There was a slight misunderstanding with regards to some detail work around one of the headlights, but the customer service was exemplary and it was resolved without a quibble. I have no affiliation with the company, other than as a customer, but feel that the excellent work deserves recognition and wish them all the best with the business.
