The Auto Lounge Ltd was formed in 2019 by petrolheads Graham Davidson & Craig Handley.
The Auto Lounge Ltd was formed in 2019 from a passion for cars. Seeing an opportunity to put our combined networks and experience together to create something new and interesting to the automotive industry north of the border. To provide customers with a personalised, relaxed, simple and overall better experience when buying, selling or sourcing their luxury or performance vehicles. We aim to provide a best in class bespoke service for our customers, ensuring a memorable experience whether the business is conducted over the phone, or from our bespoke showroom set upon over 70 acres of idyllic Aberdeenshire countryside.
Following a successful career in the oil industry and ongoing projects with commercial property Graham is also fuelled by a competitive passion for sports cars and racing. Having started sister car business GT Storage Solutions in 2014 and also having owned many high performance cars, he understands the expectations of car enthusiasts and collectors.
A hobby track day regular Graham quickly developed into a successful racing driver, a journey starting at Knockhill in Fife moved on to take overall Champion honours in the 2017 GT Cup with a McLaren. Graham now regularly features in international races such as Spa 24hrs, Dubai and Barcelona amongst others and takes part in various GT sprint and endurance races securing podium finishes along the way. In 2018 he took GT3 class win at LeMans in the AMR festival support race for the LeMans 24hr. Most recently his greatest racing achievement is securing the 2019 British GT Championship overall title with Aston Martin Racing alongside teammate Jonny Adam, 2017 LeMans winner, making it a record 4th British GT overall title for Jonny.
In addition to four wheeled exploits, Graham also has a history in racing downhill mountain bikes, enjoys enduro motorbikes and snowboarding.
Craig has been immersed in all things sports and super cars since his mid teenage years. He originally began building a number of clients through offering photography and videography for private high end car clients. In 2014 Craig was approached by Bentley Glasgow and began work with them for a short period of time, before moving to McLaren for the launch of the new McLaren Glasgow dealership. Craig worked there until late 2016 selling numerous McLarens including Special Editions such as the 675LT and McLaren’s very latest hypercar – the P1!
In December 2016 Craig joined Aston Martin Edinburgh as a Sales Specialist. He worked with a number of clients to help create their bespoke specifications from Aston Martin’s new range which included DB11, New Vantage & DBS Superleggera. He also built an array of knowledge surrounding Astons of the past. The pinnacle of Craig’s career here was securing an order for Aston Martin’s new £1m+ hypercar – the Aston Martin Valhalla (AM-RB 003).
Craig left Aston Martin Edinburgh in March 2019 to start The Auto Lounge Ltd with Graham and create a business which they can both thrive in, sharing their knowledge of all things automotive whilst providing a first class customer experience from start to finish.
