The Vindis Group was founded in 1960 by Frank Vindis, a former World War II Czech spitfire pilot. Our first retailer was opened in Sawston, Cambridgeshire in 1960.
Until April 2013, the Company was jointly managed by Frank’s sons, Gary and Nigel; who had both been involved in the business from a very young age. Astute businessmen; their passion for motor vehicles, and the core family values they instilled into the company resulted in the continued development that the Group has enjoyed. The loss of Nigel through illness in April 2013 was a loss not only to his family but to every employee within the Vindis Group.
In May 2013, Gary Vindis announced the appointment of his son, Jamie, into the position of Managing Director, from his role as Operations Director for the Group. Jamie’s focus is on continuing to deliver Gary and Nigel’s aspirations for the Group and to support Gary in his position as Chairman.
Vindis Group is a family owned business that has grown by delivering both a personal and professional service. We have a network of Audi, Bentley, ŠKODA, Volkswagen and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle retailers, spanning six counties. In 2016, Vindis Group announced the launch of two new Ducati stores to its portfolio and also acquired Milton Keynes SEAT.
In addition, we have two trade parts divisions located in Bishop’s Stortford and Cambridge; a Head Office function in Huntingdon; and a large Fleet Centre situated at Alconbury Weald. Whilst we have continued to expand, we have been careful to nurture the core family values our business was founded upon.
The Group today focuses on our vision:
We are committed to delivering customer service that is truly experiential. Our specialist Sales Executives and Service Advisors are trained to ensure that the experience you have in any one of our dealerships is one of extreme satisfaction. In particular, the experience of purchasing a vehicle is one that should be enjoyable and our intention is to help you find the perfect vehicle for you.
It is not our intention to be the biggest motor group in the UK but to be the most recognised for our commitment to exceeding both business objectives, and customer expectations.
We look forward to welcoming you to a Vindis Group retailer in the near future.

The Vindis Group is delighted to launch its new online buying platform; providing you with an exciting and innovative digital experience and giving you genuine real-time buy-it-now ability across all new and used vehicles; with all our stock vehicles (and factory orders) available to buy online and from the comfort of your own home.
Our vehicle search function now provides the facility to search across all brands simultaneously, or to refine your search based on make, model, overall cash price or monthly payment. And once you’ve found your perfect vehicle, you can enquire on it, reserve it or even go through our brand new online purchase process - covering everything from part-exchange valuation to finance quotation - allowing you the full freedom and transparency of buying from the comfort of your own home.
Don’t worry, if you don’t feel comfortable purchasing online, or if you stop at any point in the journey, we can pick it up with you and help to guide you in whichever way you wish; either remotely through our digital sales team, or in any one of our Vindis Group retailers.
With major new leaps in technology can always come some challenges, and as this is a very new platform (for both Vindis and the industry) we would really appreciate your feedback (and occasionally patience) whilst we go though a short-term process of ironing out any issues with this BETA version.
We look forward to hearing from you, and hope you enjoy your online journey.
