To see this car on the street is quite special.

To see a Bentley Hooper Empress II actually in production is simply amazing.

Here are photos of a Hooper Empress II in the workshop of Hooper & Co. (Coachbuilders) Ltd.

Viewing these pictures gives a whole different level to the skill and craftsmanship of making a coachbuilt modern car.

It is properly re-bodied. Take a close look.

Gentlemen: These photos are super. I am currently researching an article for The Flying Lady--a follow-up on a 2008 article on 1980s Hooper cars. I would very much like permission to use these shots in TFL. And, Neil, it said you built these cars. Any chance for an interview for my article? Thanks in advance. Bill Wolf
