A world-leading car museum is being planned for the Cotswolds

Imagine a stylish new car museum, combining displays of some of the most priceless, all-time greats of the automotive world with state-of-the-art interactive displays and future technology. Imagine that this new museum sits in 160 acres of landscaped grounds which include a workshop, special display areas and, best of all, a demonstration road on which museum cars will be exercised several times a day.

Sounds good? It could feasibly become one of the world’s top five car museums, up there with such gems as Mercedes-Benz World, the Porsche museum and the Petersen – especially when you consider that £150 million would be invested in the project.

The location is Enstone Airfield on the Great Tew Estate, six miles from Chipping Norton Interestingly; it’s also just three miles from the Renault F1 team HQ, which employs 600 people.

Peter Mullin, the man behind the new initiative, is also chairman of the Petersen Automotive Museum, president of the American Bugatti Club, serves on the advisory board of the Guggenheim Foundation and is one of the most popular personalities in the top-end collector car world.

The plans are currently with West Oxfordshire Council’s planning department. A number of objections to the scheme have been lodged.
