The company “Mirage Automotive Developments Ltd” was officially formed in late 2016 as a sister company to the well-established “Auto Mirage Ltd". A family run business at heart, the sole purpose of the new company formation was to separate the production and sale of the Mirage GTs (and all future models) from the day to day running of the already well renowned body/paint shop, Auto Mirage.
Apart from that, not much else has changed. The original father/son team of Terry and Leigh Whiteman have also been joined by Leigh’s wife Julie and their son Scott. In addition, long term friend Matthew Potts has joined Leigh and Terry in the running of the company and share of responsibilities.
The company "Auto Mirage Ltd" was established in January 2007 after trading as, and being known as "Car Craft of Lytham" since 1982. Re-development of the Dock Road area of Lytham not only forced re-location of the business, but also provided an opportunity to re-focus on more specialised work and projects.
For twenty five years, Car Craft carried out virtually the whole spectrum of automotive related works, including general servicing, mechanical repairs, body repairs and resprays, restorations, modifications and MOT's. Throughout the 1990's they designed, manufactured and very successfully competed in their own kit cars in the shape of the CC Zero and the CC Cyclone.
