Automotive investment platform TheCarCrowd is opening the doors to its all-new café – a must-visit destination for UK petrolheads and classic car enthusiasts. From today, the café will serve visitors with drinks and snacks from specialty coffee roaster, Outpost Coffee.
With enthusiast destinations like Ace Café and Caffeine & Machine proving popular among those of both two- and four-wheel persuasions, TheCarCrowd Café and collection will offer a new experience for members and the public alike.
A rotating selection of TheCarCrowd’s investment models will be on display for visitors, regardless of whether or not they hold a stake in the carefully selected collection. To that end, visitors will always have something new to look at, particularly given that new cars are offered for investment on a regular basis. Among the cars available to view at TheCarCrowd are a range of 80s hot hatches including a Renault 5 GT Turbo and Peugeot 205 1.6 GTI, plus a Ford Sierra Cosworth and an ultra-rare Spyker C8 Spyder. These will shortly be joined by the getaway driver’s favorite – the 177mph Lotus Omega.
With a 20-space private car park, TheCarCrowd café will be a perpetual ‘cars and coffee’. Additionally, one Thursday night each month will have a special theme, attracting vehicles of a certain type, manufacturer or period.
David Spickett, CEO of TheCarCrowd, commented: “We are really looking to emphasise and build upon the community aspect of TheCarCrowd and this new café will do exactly that – bring people together. With themed nights and a continuous rotation of cars on display, each visit will be unique. Our aim is to develop TheCarCrowd into a real destination for savvy investors and petrolheads alike, particularly stakeholders in the collection, and this is an important first step. A key part of TheCarCrowd is to make all of these special cars accessible to the automotive community and we are excited to welcome new petrolheads to our café from today“.
TheCarCrowd is an innovative automotive investment platform that removes the classic car market’s substantial barriers to entry. A specialist panel selects the models and specific examples to offer as investments. Starting from as little as £29 per stake, members have the option to purchase up to a 10% stake in their chosen vehicles and benefit from any future appreciation. With the recent rise in alternative investments and significant growth* within the classic car market, TheCarCrowd is making automotive investment accessible to all qualifying investors.
The Car Crowd Café at Mansfield Rd, Notts, NG22 8BG is open to the public Thursday and Fridays from 9am to 8pm and weekends from 9am to 3pm.
