Who are AT Performance?
ATP Cars’ mission statement is to supply their customers with the highest quality cars and to provide an unrivaled buying experience. Partners in the business, Chris Marshall and Thomas Gaunt started their journey in the automotive sector working for an independent motor racing team in 2004. Since then their experience and network has grown significantly, so in February 2015 AT Performance Cars was launched to source and supply high performance road cars.
ATP Cars’ aim is to provide friendly customer service, helpful after sales support and go to lengths other dealers won’t to ensure complete satisfaction. It’s the expectation for ATP to build a relationship with each of their clients, with many of them returning again and again for their next car.
“Our premises is a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, where clients can ask all the necessary questions in order to fully understand the vehicle they wish to own. We are not salesmen, ATP Cars is not a forecourt, it’s a window into your next lifestyle choice”.
Thomas Gaunt – Director
Following a decade in Motorsport Engineering and Management, Thomas opted for change of direction in life with less travel. Having worked on global motorsport programmes for various high profile teams, Thomas’ ability to deal with people, show patience and professionalism enable him to provide first class customer service. The passion for cars began at a young age, from watching his father race around Silverstone is an Austin Maestro and also attending Grand Prixs and BTCC events with him. At 17 years of age, a career with an independent Mitsubishi Rally team began, which is where Chris and Thomas first met in 2004.

A personal tour of the @mercedesamgf1 garages was definitely a dream come true. The technology in there is absolutely amazing, everyone we were introduced to were very welcoming and keen to explain all the parts that make up the fastest car on the grid.
