Berkeley Cars Ltd. was a British manufacturer known for producing small and lightweight sports cars and microcars during the 1950s and 1960s. Founded in 1956, the company’s vehicles were characterized by their fiberglass bodies and compact design. The Berkeley SE328, SE492, and B95 models were among their notable creations. These cars featured two-stroke engines and were popular for their affordability, efficiency, and distinctive appearance. While Berkeley Cars Ltd. faced financial challenges and ultimately closed its doors in 1960, its legacy endures as a unique chapter in British automotive history. The company’s microcars are cherished by collectors today, representing a fascinating era of innovation and experimentation in the automotive industry.
