About Us

Tom Hartley has been buying and selling luxury and performance cars for more than four decades, during which time he has developed an incomparable and respected track record within the motoring industry.

Tom’s education came not in a classroom, but at the car auctions of his native Glasgow. At the age of just 12, in 1973, he sold his first car – a Range Rover – and began the incredible journey which would soon take him across the border into England, where he set up his Derbyshire base in 1980.
Today, the 40-acre Hartley countryside estate where Tom & his son Carl’s family homes and showrooms stand is testament to the unparalleled enterprise, experience, and expertise which has seen the name become synonymous with the supercar market.

Tom Hartley has been widely documented by global media, and recognised by everyone from The Sun and The Financial Times to Top Gear and Bloomberg as the definitive name in prestige cars. Hailed as ‘the Doyen of Supercar Dealers’ by The Daily Telegraph, ‘Britain’s Premier Dealer’ by The Sunday Times and recently recognised by The London Stock Exchange as a ‘company to inspire Britain’ which has lead to a nomination for the queens award, we are unrivalled in our profile and reputation for buying and selling the world’s most sought after vehicles, with customer satisfaction our absolute guarantee.

More than 45 years on from concluding his first deal, Tom Hartley continues to lead the company together with his son Carl who, like his father, was schooled within the business. By 2005, at the age of just 18, Carl completed his apprenticeship having achieved enough success to be able to buy into his father’s business as a full partner.

Together, Tom and Carl continue to work tirelessly to ensure that the quality, luxury, and heritage that are the hallmarks of Tom Hartley are embodied from the moment you venture within the manned gates of the family’s estate.

Whether arriving by car, by helicopter on the estate’s private helipad, or by plane, with a chauffeur service offered from any UK airport, the Tom Hartley customer experience is designed to underpin the values which the brand stands for. Viewing is strictly by appointment only, and available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – including Christmas Day – for your ultimate convenience.

‘Lifetime achievement is the best and it’s given by people who admire your achievements in life. This is the biggest highlight for me. ‘I don’t get many honours but when I do I get the big ones, and this is the biggest for me.’

‘This is always an incredibly tough category to choose who will win but it’s great to see it go to Tom.

‘He plays a huge part in the industry and is a role model to many – and it’s great to see how much it meant to him too! Congratulations again, Tom, for picking up this top award.’
