Vertu Motors PLC is a UK based car dealership group established in 2006. It is listed on the Alternative Investment Market.

The company started trading by acquiring Bristol Street Motors[1] in 2007, a Birmingham based dealer that started in the early 1900s, for £31m cash, £9m of shares, and assumed debt of £29m.

The company sells a variety of car marques under the Vertu, Bristol Street Motors, Farnell[2] and Macklin Motors name, a company acquired by Vertu in Scotland in 2010.[3]

The company's largest acquisition since its establishment with Bristol Street Motors was £31m to purchase the Yorkshire-based Farnell Land Rover dealerships.[4]
