    2008 Aeon GT3

    Aeon was founded in 2000 by Keith Wood and John Hewitt to design and build a three-seater track/road car. John and Keith have a wealth of experience between them. John comes from an engineering background, serving his apprenticeship with the M.o.D. In his early years he built and raced karts and trials cars, and for the last 17 years has prepared cars and competed in sprints and hill climbs. Keith started his career as an apprentice in a drawing office, but for the past 18 years has owned and run a company that manufactures specialist off-road, amenity, agricultural and four-wheel-drive vehicles.


    Reliability and Durability Testing at Mira

    The Aeon GT³ vehicle spent several weeks with MIRA Ltd in Nuneaton Warwickshire. MIRA is a leading independent provider of product engineering, research, testing and certification to the worldwide automotive industry.

    Aeon’s first road car was completed and shown at the Exeter Kit Car Show in November 2003. Since then the Aero version and the Spyder have been completed.
    Three models are now available:
    GT3 Spyder - open top with windscreen
    GT3 Coupe - full roof coupe
    GT3 Aero - open top with aeroscreen

    Justin Yates joined Aeon as a customer in Jan 2007. His car was finished in March 2008 and is the car you see here.
