About Us

For many years, Paul Matty has been a leading light in Lotus classic cars. Paul Matty Sportscars developed into a principal supplier of parts, both direct to owners and to other classic car specialists. 

Early in 2022, Paul made it known that he had decided to retire from the classic Lotus road car parts supply business. For some time, Classic Team Lotus has been considering extending its parts service, so this opportunity was well timed, accelerating our ambition into reality. 

By early May CTL found themselves with the enviable task of relocating the Paul Matty 'Lotus Treasure' to Hethel; getting things organised then continuing to offer this vital support to customers to help them keep their wonderful cars on the road. 

Clive Chapman commented: "I have enjoyed knowing Paul for many years and admire him for doing so much to celebrate and support the history of the marque. I am pleased that Classic Team Lotus has acquired his 'Lotus Treasure' and we will do our best to maintain and build upon such an important resource for Lotus owners worldwide. A big 'thank you' to Paul for entrusting us with this exciting opportunity." 

We soon realised that we need expert help in dealing with the ‘Treasure’ and were fortunate to be able to take on Clive Green from Paul Matty in the role of ‘Parts Manager’. Clive had been working with Paul for over 32 years and we couldn’t think of anyone better in the position.
