What’s the similarity between a cutting-edge Solidworks 3D CAD design and a rough sketch on the back of a fag packet? Forge Motorsport’s bespoke fabrication department says it can dish up the goods in fine style from either, that’s what.

The company doesn’t specialise in off-road stuff by any means, but we’ve detected a definite trend towards bespoke fabrication among 4x4 owners and builders in recent times – and when someone boldly claims that ‘if you can think it, we can make it,’ you know they mean business. ‘If it’s physically possible to be made in any kind of metal, we can definitely do it!’ There they go again.
