AT Performance Cars

About Us

Get to know us


Our mission at ATP Cars is to supply new and existing customers with the highest quality cars and to provide a personalised, 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 the lengths other dealers won't to ensure complete customer satisfaction. The expectation is for ATP to build a relationship with each of their clients, with many of them returning again and again for their next car.

About Tom

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.

"I would definitely go back in the future"

Tom and Chris are very knowledgeable about GTRs and the market. I had a great experience with them both and was happy with our deal. I would highly recommend @(Model.DealerName) - it's a real gem for GTR owners, buyers and sellers. I would definitely go back in the future.

"The car was even better than expected"

Big thanks to Tom and the team. Very easy guys to deal with and they had my new toy all sitting arguably cleaner than a brand new car! First class service, and my purchase went seamlessly. I travelled for over 6hrs to buy the car, and Tom had told me that if it wasn't as described he'd pay my travel! The car was even better than expected and I drove it home with a big grin. Very professional company and i'd have no hesitation purchasing from them again or recommending them to anybody else. Real enthusiasts, and very professional. Thanks guys.

"Amazing from the first moment of contact"

At the beginning of December 2016 i have bought this amazing GTR from the guys from AT Performance. I live in the Netherlands so i was searching the internet when i came around this one which immediately caught my eye. The communication and customer care was amazing from the first moment of contact, this gives me a good feeling when buying a car. The visit at the ATP headquarters was nice and friendly, got a nice tour around the workshop and my GTR was ready to go back to its new home in Holland. I can advise everyone who wants to buy a good car to buy it at AT Performance. My car is now fully imported and registered on Dutch license plates and i still enjoy it everytime i drive it. Greetings, Jim.

"Fantastic Staff"

Have purchased and sold through @(Model.DealerName) on various occasions now. Friendly and knowledgeable service every time. Fantastic staff and one of very few car dealers I would ever purchase a car through.

"You've made me the happiest man in the world"

Left the same review for Auto Torque as I have seen both side of the business over the past week, bought my Evo 9 FQ 300 through AT performance and while it was there Chris managed to rearrange his appointments at auto torque to give the car a full winter protection package with an undearseal treatment. I can honestly say that the customer service and work carried out on the car was fantastic. Chris and Tom made buying a car actually a pleasant experience instead of what you usually expect from a car garage. They were completely honest about the car, gave me regular updates through the buying process as well as with the undearseal, picked me up from the train station, and even took me to the post office to tax the car due to the online website being down, what more could you ask! I would without a doubt be taking my car here for all services if it wasn't for a seven hour round trip. That being said we've already discussed me coming back at the end of the summer to fit a few upgrades all at once while I stay over. It's an efficient, friendly business ran by genuine motor enthusiasts like us. Once again, thanks for everything Chris, you've made me the happiest man in the world!.

"You made me very happy"

Have been served by AT Performance with patience and respect. Top notch communication and in the end I got more then I was looking for. Very pleased with the transfer and I will not hesitate to do business again.Thanks ATPC, you made me very happy.

"100% recommend"

Sold my GTR to ATP and very happy with the price and the way these guys do business. They collected the car and paid the price agreed without any messing around. 100% recommend.

"An Absolute Pleasure"

It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Thomas. I sold my car to him and he was happy to come and collect. He gave the car a thorough examination and his knowledge of cars was top notch so knew my car was going to a dealer who cares. Would definitely buy or sell from you in the future. Thanks again for a smooth sale.

"Above and beyond at every step of the process"

This is a very professional company. I recently purchased a new Audi daily driver (stage 2!) from them and the process was excellent, they went above and beyond at every step of the process. Thank you to Chris, Tom and the team.

"First class and very professional service"

After viewing various vehicles advertised on the internet and spending quite some time travelling to view cars with faults or molested examples, was advised of a possibly suitable GTR at AT performance. After a chat with Tom, a viewing was arranged for the following day, Sunday. The car was immaculately presented and was the desirable spec I was looking for. Was grinning like a Cheshire cat on the test drive as Tom imparted his Knowledge of GTR's and advised on the specific history of this car. I purchased the car and opted for a warranty package for peace of mind and arranged to collect the car following week. Received a first class and very professional service from these guys, will be returning for servicing and hopefully some AT performance upgrades. Many Thanks AT performance for matching me with my dream GTR.

"These guys are seriously dedicated to what they do"

Picked up my GT-R from Tom & Chris a few weeks ago. These guys are seriously dedicated to what they do. Fantastic inventory, immaculate workshops and very professional. Fantastic to deal with from the word go. Honest guys that are clearly very passionate about what they are selling. Always on hand to answer questions before and after the sale. Couldn't recommend them enough!

"Reasonable, trustworthy and straight to the point"

I recently used AT performance in August 2016 to sell my GTR. Initially contact was made over email with Tom, followed by a phone call and Tom was very truthful regarding the ability to buy and what they looked for in a great example of a high performance car. Mine was very well maintained and once shown to Tom an offer was made within the hour from leaving and the car bought within 1 week. Reasonable, trustworthy and straight to the point, excellent experience and should I ever need to buy a high performance car AT Performance will be the first place I look! All cars are of the highest quality and you know they have been looked over with a fine tooth comb before being put on sale.
