A family owned British company, Clark Abel is born from Futura Group’s 25-years plus experience in the automotive design industry, working with the most famous prestigious global brands including Bentley, Aston Martin, Jaguar Land Rover and McLaren - to name just a few. It’s not purely all about cars though – over the years, our incredibly skilled craftsmen and designers have worked on superyachts, private jets, objects to enhance the office and home and more. This breadth of capability means we can turn our hand to personalising just about any valued item to suit any taste.
W H AT E V E R YOU WISH, WE CAN CREATE.
The brief for this car was to take an already stylish model, but give it a far more muscular, aggressive and purposeful air â€“ hence the Dakar Evoque was born. The Dakar demonstrates Clark Abel can provide a vastly different design, yet still maintain the vehicleâ€™s original DNA.
We work to create unique models for the entertainment and music industry, the latest brief being an uber-stylish Bond-inspired taxi for an up and coming film.
A fascinating brief to turn an already stunning supercar into something truly unique. The client wanted us to address both interior and exterior, to give the car the look of having even more power and edge.
EVOQUE INTERIOR THEMES
The brief for this project was to produce a number of design themes to cater for a variety of luxury lifestyles and individual tastes. From white tiger, Mayan motifs, Roman battle themes and more, our customers dare to be different - as do we.
MARILYN MONROE EVOQUE
An exquisite airbrush homage by acclaimed artist Paul Karslake to Hollywoodâ€™s most recognisable icon, marking the 50th anniversary of her untimely passing. This really needs to be seen up close to appreciate the skill and detail involved - almost impossible to imagine this is not on a wrap, but actually airbrushed by hand onto the car.
Many of our clients love to sail and appreciate and own fine sea-going craft, and their need to have a cabin designed just to their taste, is to them as important as how fast they can sail. Weâ€™ve worked closely with luxury yacht maker Wally to help create stunning interiors that will be appreciated by all.
From prestige models to supercars including Lamborghinis, we can take any model, and transform it to meet even your most demanding creative expectations. Our expert designers and craftsmen have worked to bring some of the worldâ€™s greatest supercars on the market to life.
This coupled with our unique facilities which allow client one-offs to be modelled in clay first, means few if any can match us in not just the final product, but in the hands-on involvement we can offer our valued customers too â€“ through all stages of the journey to create their dream car, from initial exploratory sketches, to CAD, to clay, to paint to the final stunning product.
Many of our clients love to sail in luxury, and weâ€™ve undertaken various projects to totally transform superyacht interiors to meet their exact tastes and specification. Weâ€™ve the finest, butter-soft leathers, woods and metals at our disposal and the vision and creativity to create matchlessly exquisite cabins.
As a luxury bespoke design company we can work on any type of product, and this includes customising the interiors of private jets to meet our clientsâ€™ exact tastes.
DESIGN THE CAR OF YOUR DREAMS
The luxury world today is all about personalisation, people want absolute exclusivity, and to express themselves in their own way and style. Should you want a totally unique car created, we have the imagination, innovation and experience to really make this a reality for you. We encourage our clients to be as involved as they wish, and they can witness the full design process that utilises CAD/CAM software to provide initial design themes that are then completed as a clay model to ensure the styling in â€œreal lifeâ€?. And, work closely with the designers to make any adjustments needed until they are 100% delighted with the result.
TAILOR YOUR SUPERCAR
Many of our clients have a fleet of stunning supercars gracing their garages, but often want some modifications – from minor to more extreme. Whether inside or out, we work with them to create what they desire – even if that’s just changing leather and chromes, through to whole new wings, grilles, spoilers and more. Additionally, with acclaimed artist Paul Karslake as one of our consultant experts, we can offer incredible and unique airbrushed artwork on the car too.
Bold and daring, contemporary and cool, any interior can be created to your exact taste. We know what works in terms of both practicality and style. Our experts have gained their experience working on models from some of the worldâ€™s most exclusive and famous brands.
Our dare to be different approach and expertise in producing totally unique one-offs makes us a first port of call when companies in the entertainment industry want scene-stealing monster tucks â€“ such as the one we designed for the film Judge Dredd, or, bikes and cars. The latest project is a state-of-the-art, gadget-filled taxi for a big budget spy movie, inspired by all things Bond.
From iconic Hollywood starlets, to World War II scenes, painstakingly airbrushed by hand, we work with acclaimed artist Paul Karslake to offer our clients all the creativity they desire. His talent brings the images to life, in stunning colours and detail.
For those clients wanting artwork on the interiors of their cars, yachts and jets too, we work with Paul and incredibly skilled in-house craftsmen to produce stunning designs on the softest of leathers and other quality materials. From painting seatbacks to comfort travelling cushions, to fascias and inside door panels, everything is possible to meet your desires.
