Brunel Engraving, which is based in Britannia Way, was asked to put a special plaque on a remodelled classic two-seater MGB Roadster.

Frontline Developments re-engineered the car to create the MG Abingdon Edition and then Top Gear host Chris Evans took it for a spin on the last episode of the series.

Frontline Developments asked Brunel Engraving to produce unique sill plates for the car, which commemorate the re-engineering process.

Martyn Wright, founder and director of Brunel Engraving, said: “A high degree of precision and attention to detail was required in the preparation of the plates to reflect the quality of the restoration.

“We are proud to have been involved in this prestigious project.

“As Chris Evans said, ‘it’s pretty much perfect’.”
