Redline Specialist Cars have secured a top 20 position in the Motor Trader Top 50 Independent Dealers survey for the second year in a row. The industry survey tracks strong growth in the sales and profit performance of the UK’s top non-franchised car retailers.

The survey placed Redline in 19th position with a turnover of just under £45 million from 890 sales (estimated) – up from £36.5 million in the previous year – and positioning them in the top 5 independent supercar dealers in the UK.

Car supermarket groups dominated the top 10 with Motorpoint retaining the top spot with a turnover of £563m. The group’s results were based on 52,000 units sold through its 11 centres. Second placed was London’s single-site Car Giant on £465m and in third place was Available Car on £208m.
