A new superstore for British car parts will be groaning under the weight of more than 500,000 spare parts for makes including Austin, Austin-Healey, Jaguar, Land Rover, MG, Triumph and TVR – and it can all be browsed and ordered online. brings together famous names under one umbrella site, including Leacy Classics, Wood and Pickett, MG Rover’s Xpart and Racing Green’s TVR parts arm. Motaclan has been trading for more than a decade, but the newly launched website is “a new era” for the company, says Tim Lyons, its Managing Director.

The move means car owners and those working in the classic car trade will have easy access to a treasure trove of replacement parts. Leacy Classics has been in the business for nearly 40 years, supplying spares and accessories for come of Britain’s most-loved cars, from the MGB to TR6, and E-Type to Mini. XPart was originally set up to cater for the MG, Rover and Rover Mini brands.

The comprehensive range of stock spans everything from service items to wear and tear parts such as engine and gearbox mounts, suspension components and gaskets and oil seals. Those undertaking a restoration will find body parts, accessories, interior trim and even bodyshells all available at the click of a mouse. Items available on are shipped from its Birmingham wharehouse and can be shipped globally, says the company.

“The launch of Motaclan and our dedicated new online retail experience marks a new and exciting era for the group,” said Tim Lyons. “We are passionate about keeping our much-loved British classics on the road and preserving our historic models to keep the legacy alive.”

Other popular marques and models catered for include Land Rover’s Series models, Defenders, the first two generations of Discovery and the Range Rover Classic. A similarly wide range of TVR parts are available, from early pre M-Series models to the late Tuscan 2 and T350. Some parts for Lotus cars are also in stock. We’ll leave the obvious jokes about all three brands keeping parts suppliers in business to the forums.
