Cobretti Engineering and More lies.

God this guy Busbridge as I’ve said ad infinitum is “The Worlds Biggest Liar” and just now Ive seen yet another of his monumental lies.

This time on the net; a story put out by him concerning an article done by that other monumental liar mate of his….one Ian Hyne who poses as a journo. He apparently has done at some time recently (maybe) a write-up about a Cobretti customer and his car.

(Does this customer know that the car he’s driving is a car designed by myself and copied by Busbridge?? Ian Hynne certainly does…..but then as I’ve said he’s a liar too and would not admit who any brownie points should go to.

Now the point I want to make here is the outrageous lie he makes that over 200 cars have been made by this liar…Busbridge!! Now Busbridge started his copying of my Viper Cobra car in 1992. That is 25 years ago and if he made dead on 200 cars that equates to 8 cars a years EVERY year. Given that he has only ever since then worked out of a small garage at his house (now near Gatwick) it is a physical impossbility to make without fail 8 cars every year. So this is yet another gross lie put about by this asshole liar Busbridge and always abetted by Hynne.

Only in this useless country like ours can anyone get away with all this, as I have found out and people who have no conscience will aid all this, by buying from crooks.


Cobretti Viper V8 Liars & Crooks

I am now in the interest of showing potential customers of theirs, what a crook this Busbridge is. That he stole my chassis designs and then trade mark. That the Intellectual Property Office believed every lie he told over an 18 year period and over 6 tribunal hearings at the IPO & one County Court hearing. Committed massive acts of perjury and eeven 5 acts of forging documents. The IPO believed every word he said for some inexplicable reason.

Now in 2009 his brother Martin turned up and acted as a witness for the last hearing in 2010. He too had been ripped off by his brother and that says it all about this dispicable individual. He made several witness statements for that last hearing confirming all I had said. I am attaching here the most important statement which will show you the true facts and don’t forget, this is his brother who is confirming all his criminal actions even tho’ he too was involved. Why would he lie??  and you can make your own judgement. Unfortunately Martin died in 2012 from Motor Neurone desease, so is not here to add his pennyworth.

I am also attaching photos of my chassis taken during the Brightwheel period and after, so you can compare his copy from the photos he shows on his website. You will see that apart from a few minor changes made to the footwells fronts but all the rest is identical. And makes claims the design is so good he does’nt need to change it. That shows what a cheeky liar he is.

The second rusty chassis was one I fabricated in Germany in 1991. AGAIN BEFORE BUSBRIDGE COPIED IT. If you look carefully at his copy and mine you will see it is to all intents IDENTICAL.

The main thing to understand that superstructure is not the most important when considering copying as it is the main chassis rails and how all the suspension of Jaguar that is connected to that chassis, that matters. One can alter slightly the superstructure as he has done and that does not alter how the Jaguar donor parts are able to attach to the chassis. Nor how the body is able to also be attached.





Cobretti Engineering & Ian Ayre latest article

In my last post I told you he’d written a further lying article about Cobretti and I now have been given it so can relate all the latest lies spouted by this arch liar.
Go to my sister blog on and read the quite long post on this matter. This blog also gives you info on the way kit car mags in this country are almost as bad as Cobretti Engineering is. IE run by lying duplicitous twats, like Tanner (now in jail)

Happy reading which I hope will educate you.

Cobretti Engineering & Ian Ayre (again)

In my last blog I said that the article on Cobretti by this fellow liar mate of Busbridge may have been published by Complete kitcar. I have now found it was Kitcar Magazine that has been responsible and that figures. However I am astonished that it is still going as I thought that when Tanner was slung inside, it would fold.
What a bummer to hear it is still going but reportedly with very few sales. Hope it folds as it is only a reminder of that disgusting object Tanner.
Once I get hold of a copy I will report on all the lies he comes out with in it.

Cobretti Engineering and Ian Ayre

Told the other day that this parasite Ian Ayre who I have written about before is back on the UK scene after I thought he’d gone for good to the States.
Back in the early 90’s when he was writing for various kitcar magazines, mainly I think for Which Kit but could have been for Tanners ‘Kitcar’ he accepted a free copy of my Viper off the crook Busbridge. Of course you never get ‘Owt for Nowt’ and he got it quite plainly so he would write endless articles about how good my car was.Yet he never once had the guts or honesty to admit that what he built was a car that was designed by me and copied by rat Busbridge.
Now he’s at it again and has written an article apparently extolling the Busbridge empire as being an incredibly fantastic outfit. What shits me off is that it looks like Complete Kitcar has featured it in their magazine. If this is the case then it shows that they too are as bad as Tanner was for unmitigated lies, because they know the true story as I told them it way back and even gave them a copy of my book ‘Justice Denied’ which chronicles the whole story in detail.
When I get a copy of this I will report further but in the meantime carry on being wary of doing any business with Cobretti as Busbridge is a liar and a thief and I will highlight all the lies that are told about him and his Cobretti business, founded on intellectual property of mine he stole.

Cobretti Engineering, Tanner gets just deserts.

Yesterday was a happy day for me for I heard that the arch shit & crook Tanner had been sent to prison for 3&1/2 years. To think that this shit helped Busbridge of Cobretti for all those years by lying on his behalf over his stealing all my I/P when he copied my Viper Cobra. Accused me of running off with peoples money in 1989 and disappearing abroad. Which was a total lie as I was here in the UK making the Viper and selling it through my agents of then….Cobretti. Only to have them steal the lot off me.
So now he rots in a jail, I hope, but then what are jails like these days?….holiday camps they say. I hope some massive big, butch bloke, rapes him or beats him up or both. For he deserves it and the only thing that really surprises me is that someone never paid for him to be beaten up years ago, as he upset so many people in the kit car world over the year he infested it.

Cobretti Engineering. Link for you.

I forgot to tell readers that if they want to read what my solicitor actually said, I have put in a link for you to that document, on the rights side of this page and headed ‘IPO hearing document’ Makes good reading.
Also silly me, the last two posts were posted late as I forgot to change the setting ‘who may read this post’ to everyone,as I did the posts in draft form. Better late than never.
It is nice to see that over 1400 people have now read this blog which considering it deals with a highly specific subject. I only hope that most are intending Cobra Replica buyers who only want the truth about one hell of a bent purveyor of a Cobra Replica who never even designed it himself and preferred to copy someone else. Who even on his website posts pictures of Vipers I made myself and says they are Cobras he made. It never ceases to amaze me just how gullible some members of the Public are, and who have no better morals than old liar himself.

Cobretti Engineering- The Hearing.

On this last Thursday the 28th January 2010 we had the combined hearings of Martin Busbridges application to revert the now registered Trade mark ‘Viper’ which Robert Busbridge holds because of continous mastakes made by the IPO, be reverted to read that it is rergistered to both he and Robert as partners, which is what the original application was made in.
Of course as this original application was illegally made,anyway, on a number of points, when it is reverted, it has to be rescinded by the IPO as per the decision of the hearing officer Landau made in 2005. The application was made by Robert in bad faith as he knew full well I owned the mark and he never told Martin his brother and partner he was applying for the mark to be registered, and in the partnership name. This is in breach of partnership law. He has never to this day bought out his brothers share and therefore he had no right to act as he did without his brothers approval. There are many other issues relating to this application and they can be read by reading my sister blog ‘Raging mad’ to which there is a link to. On that blog you will find the argument document that my solicitor relied on at the hearing. In it is set out all the legal points to do with the whole hearing, including why Busbridges application to make my legal registration of my Trade Mark ‘Viper’, is invalid.
It also sets out where Robert Busbridge has lied time and again and how his dishonesty should be dealt with.
I have to say that Robert Busbridge presented a pathetic figure at the hearing and he did not come across as a truthful and convincing witness, which of course he isn’t. I only hope that for once the hearing officer of the IPO is an honest one unlike previous ones, who will for once deal with this liar of a man in the manner he should have been dealt with long ago. WE NOW HAVE TO WAIT WHILE THE IPO COOK UP THEIR DECISION. WILL IT BE A FUDGE LIKE ALL THE REST WERE OR WILL IT GET TO THE REAL TRUTH FOR ONCE????????????????
One thing I do know is that one Robert Busridge is going to have a hot time waiting for this decision for even if they do not deal with the perjury, I can still go to the Police and demand they charge him on my evidence that I have in abundance.

Cobretti Engineering more lies.

Those of you that get and read the rag, Kit Car magazine published by Robert Busbridges fellow arch liar one Dennis the menace Tanner, may have seen the latest article on the Cobretti copy of my car.(PAGE124 JANUARY ISSUE) As you know, he calls it the Cobretti Viper, but those of us who like to only deal in the TRUTH, know that there is no such thing as a Cobretti Viper, as it is a clone, a copy, a rip off,a pirated version, call it what you will, of my car the Classic Replicas Viper and before that the Brightwheel Viper.
THE ARTICLE IS WRITTEN BY NONE OTHER THAN YET ANOTHER LIAR AND BENDER OF THE TRUTH, ONE IAN AYRE. Isn’t it strange how many liars and cheats populate the Kit Car industry and this one is as good as you get. His article, no doubt ordered by Chief Liar Busbridge, is full of untruths or what I prefer to call barefaced lies. Of course all this lying is done, care of Dennis the Menace who is in love with fellow liar Busbridge and has always hated me after I blew his rubbish Cobra away with my Viper 4 Cortina Cobra. This article follows quickly on the heels of the two pages of adverts in the 2010 Kitcar A-Z Guide which also are full of lies.
Ayre praises the chassis strength in such a way which indirectly is praising the design qualities, thanks to the engineering skills of one Robert Busbridge. This a person who could not design a rabbit hutch. Of course the truth is that I designed this chassis along with my son and others in 1986.
The story he describes about a ‘Cobretti Viper’ demolishing a Landrover, is just more lies for that car was built from one of my kits. It is not the cloned Cobretti rip off car he says it is.
The pictures he shows of the chassis,shows a chassis almost exactly as I designed it with a few minor alterations, done in places that are of no impact on the main chassis frame as they are done on superstructures. If an amateur looked at photos of my chassis alongside those photos they would not be able to tell the difference.
Then a headline splashed across the page says dramatically:- ‘The Cobretti Viper has been built the same way since the early 1980’s, with minor updates along the way. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ of course this is just more lies. First of all I did not design or even bring the Viper onto the market and this chassis, until mid 1986. BUSBRIDGE WAS NOT EVEN IN THE KITCAR BUSINESS AT THIS DATE! He did not become an agent for me until Feb 1988. All the crap about not changing it is said so as to give the design, praise, and for that I say, ‘Many thanks you punk of a liar, Ian Ayre’ It is nice to know that someone thinks my design is the bees knees, but why doesn’t he say so, and attribute it to me. Why? because he’s paid by Busbridge or Tanner to spin his lies. Is he a relative of Cambell and Blair, I wonder?
Lastly he mentions that the Cobretti moulds are being tarted up. Of course once again those moulds were ‘flopped’ (as they say in the fiberglass world), off my Viper body shape.

Why don’t you readers of this blog use the link on this site to see what I think of that arch liar and total shit, ‘Dennis the menace Tanner’ It will open your eyes to what he has got up to over his years desecrating the name of the whole of the British Kit Car industry. Blog name is ‘Kitcar magazines’

Cobretti Engineering the end is nigh.

Well I hope it is and I cannot see how this reptile of an individual can get away with it any more. A hearing will be held at a venue of the IPO on the 25th January when it will be a joint hearing of my defence against his unbeleivably outragious attempt to have my own registration of what is legally my Trade Mark, and his brothers attempt to have his registration made invalid on the grounds of fraud. This being as he registered it under both names even though he never had legal grounds to do so. Also by doing so he perjured himself many times.
The IPO have already assured me that all my disloures of his perjury over many years and over 5 hearings, will be dealt with by them at this hearing. Well of course that remains to be seen, but there will be hell to play if they do not and I will take private steps to have him arrested and dealt with by the Police, for the perjury, fraud and perverting the course of Justice.
Keep watching this space over the next few months and you will get a blow by blow account of what goes on at the hearing and what the end result will be…… prison for the BIGGEST LIAR IN THE WORLD, (as Jeremy Clarkson would say) but at least THE BIGGEST LIAR IN THE KIT CAR WORLD!!!!!!
