Lancia Montecarlo S2 coupe
Another Lancia Montecarlo! This remarkable barn find is completely original and rust free. It will be restored to as close to new condition as possible (arguably better than new) in a factory black with leather interior. We have sourced a new instrument cluster, new head lights, new engine and gearbox.
Lancia Montecarlo S2 spider
Very light restoration complete on this Lancia Montecarlo S2 spider. Just 30,000 miles in completely original and rust free condition. Our next project is also a Montecarlo – an S2 coupe which will be rebuilt with a host of new parts (engine/gearbox/interior etc).

Mclaren MP4 12C
Not our usual bread and butter cars at Barnside Motors Maidenhead, but we’re always willing and able to work on more exotic vehicles. It did however take us a little while to figure out how to open the door (electronic hand swipe that needs the outside of the door to be dry..).
RMI Hybrid Qualified
Barnside Motors of Maidenhead recently completed the Retail Motor Industry Federation Hybrid training course. Barnside is ensuring our capability and equipment stays at the forefront of modern technology.
Fuel consumption is better in the water, but since it gets only 3 mpg on the road that isn’t saying much. WW2 DUKW’s in for fuel ahead of the great river run!
Tom gets to grip with a Caterham, fitting a new starter motor so we can get it running for a Carbon Clean.
