A PROPERTY developer is branching out into selling supercars for his new business.

Richard Masters is living life in the fast lane after setting up his Guiseley-based luxury and classic car dealers, Masters Prestige.

The new venture sees him offer a slice of James Bond's lifestyle by selling modern and classic supercars, with prices ranging between £20,000 and £250,000.

Ferrari, Aston Martin and Porsche are just some of the brands of supercars on sale through Mr Masters' business.

He has spent this year, including the lockdown period, building up his supercars business and is now putting the finishing touches on his 10-car showroom, which will open in Guiseley in the new year.

In the meantime word has spread and he has already been doing business, selling some of his range of vehicles to rich clients from across the country.

Mr Masters, 30, said: "Supercars are a big thing in Bradford, Leeds and West Yorkshire.

It's an opportunity that came up. I am doing the cars business alongside my work as a property developer. I have always been interested in cars

"I have dabbled with a cars business, but never got a showroom together.

"We tend to pick one-off colours and specification packages for the cars to keep them as rare as possible.

"We're setting up a website for it. A lot of the clients are people I have been dealing with for a number of years.

"Some are classics and some are new cars.

"Bradford and Leeds are where a lot of my clients are from, but I get people from all over the country. I have had people come from London.

"There is quite a lot of glamour about it. It's a lifestyle thing. They are two of the most important things people spend their money on are houses and cars.

"I'm trying to keep the business exclusive.

"We have also researched and developed a new range of vehicle. Luxury and classic cars with electric motors fitted to adapt to the new way of living. This seems to be taking our brand to a new place.

"The showroom is nearly ready, we just have the internals to do. It will be done in the new year.

"The lockdown has not slowed things down for me, as I have still been able to work thankfully."

Meanwhile, despite the setbacks of this year, Mr Masters has also continued to work as a property developer, running RM Developments, as the construction industry was exempt from the employment restrictions imposed by the Government during lockdown.

He is also finishing off work converting a property at Meadowcroft Farm in Eldwick into an exclusive six-bedroom home, which will then go on the market.
