Meet The Team

It's nice to put a face to name as sometimes our busy lifestyles mean we sometimes never meet the person we speak with at the other end of a phone.

Andy is the founder of SMC Automotive.

He has gained a wealth of experience within the motor industry working in every role imaginable throughout the world’s leading manufacturers and founded SMC in March 2005. He has been in the driving seat ever since, overseeing the creation of the SMC Over Land brand - the defining in-house brand of modified Defenders.

His passion for sports cars, Land Rovers and anything specialist means that the vehicles we have available for sale are always that 'little bit different' and his keen eye for detail ensures that only the very best cars appear on the showroom floor.

Toby's expertise and experience within the specific field of modified Land Rovers has earned him an industry-wide reputation for quality and an encyclopedic knowledge of everything Defender. 

He's often found talking about downforce as much as Defenders, having worked in the super sports car sector for a number of years and is a bone-fide petrolhead through and through! He's very passionate about providing a relaxed, informal yet professional experience and is a welcome addition to the SMC team.

If you would like to reach Toby directly for a chat, you can on 07710 096345 or email him at toby@spectrummotorcentre.co.uk
