Supercar dealer Tom Hartley joined us on Car Dealer Live on May 20 for an exclusive interview.
Hartley, who has just published a book on his experiences called The Deal Maker, had some incredible stories to tell about his supercar sales.
He sold his first car at the age of just 12 and was one of the stars of the TV series Million Pound Motors on Channel 4.
He now runs his world-famous supercar business from the Hartley estate with his son Carl and they’ve just invested in a whole new showroom, spread over three floors.
We chatted to Hartley about his amazing career in the motor trade, the cars he’s got in stock and some of his most memorable sales. He told us how he became a millionaire at 17 then lost it … before winning it all back again.
Also among the topics covered were:
- His superstar clients
- How his dealership has coped during the crisis
- What he drives as a runaround
- What his key words are in business
- What the best-value supercar is right now
- The people he admires
