2015 Pembleton Brooklands


  • Built using parts from a 1986 Citroen 2CV in 2015
  • MSVA Certificate issued in January 2015
  • Valid MOT with zero advisories until January 2025

The Appeal

Citroën-powered, and incredibly lightweight, the Pembleton Brooklands uses retro-futurist design and good old-fashioned hand-built craftsmanship to create something truly beyond the pale - exciting, fun, and mechanically simple, the Brooklands offers a unique blend of vintage aesthetics and modern reliability.

This particular example, built using parts from a 1986 Citroën 2CV, is a fine example that's clearly been cosseted. With a fine stock of paperwork and less than 2,000 miles having been covered since it was built, this fun, quirky little headturner offers a superb prospect for any hobby motorist who fancies a turn behind the wheel.

History and Paperwork

  • Built in 2015
  • Engine and mechanicals taken from a 1986 Citroën 2CV
  • No advisories on the last MOT in January 2024
  • Build completed with a MSVA Certificate issued on 8th January 2015
  • Currently indicates 54,699 miles on a five-figure odometer
  • Instruments taken from a Citroën GS, so the odometer is not a true reading
  • However we can discern the car has done less than 2,000 miles since 2015 via the MOT history
  • The registration number plate may not be sold with the car

The Condition

  • Hand-built car with minor imperfections but generally in good condition
  • Car is not painted - the bodywork is polished aluminium
  • Traditional leather straps and red accented wheels create a consistent classic feel
  • One leather bonnet strap is brittle and slightly torn due to contact with the exhaust pipe
  • Basic interior with aluminium floor and vinyl seat
  • Wooden dash in good order with all instruments legible
  • Stainless steel wheel with wooden centre really completes the array in style

The Mechanics

  • Kit car based on a 1986 Citroën 2CV engine, gearbox, and running gear
  • 602cc H2 powerplant
  • Manual transmission with 4 gears
  • Petrol gauge sender unit is sticking or has a defect in the float and probably needs replacing
  • Other than this we understand the car to be in fine order

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.


We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
