History
Founded as Nevis Motorsports in Fort William, Scotland in 1971, originally as a tuning company and rally team. Named after Ben Nevis, the tallest mountain in the UK, which overshadows the company's home town. It's emblem features the mountain as backgroung to a Yeti sihouette, reference to the rally event in which Nevis made it's name, the annual Snowman Rally. 

The company began life tuning and racing mk1 Escorts in the Scottish Rally Championship, before expanding into the British championship in the late 70's, by which time the company had began racing mk2 Escorts.

1987 saw the jump to the World Rally Championship. The demands of Group A saw the company move away from the traditional Ford Escort, and began running two Lancia Delta HF's, with near instant success, finishing 3rd in the manufacturer's championship. The following years saw yet more success with various drivers and vehicles, including the Escort RS, Toyota Celica GT-Four and several Suburu Impreza's, winning the manufacturer's championship in 1990, 1997 and 1999, and the driver's championship in '90, '96, '99.

This success led Nevis Motorsports to expand into the commercial market, re-branding as Nevis Motors, and released their first in house built car in 2000, the Boxer. 

The Boxer's instant success, both in rally and commercially, paved the way for explosive expansion into other motorsports, notably endurance racing and the Dakar Rally.

Nevis is now a successful commercial company, producing high performance cars, with their roots still firmly in motorsports.
