The X Works Automotive X1 Concept sports car went on display at the 2007 Autosports International Show in Birmingham, England.

The X1 is the first offering from the company and has been in development for 30 months. It was designed by Andrew Borrowman and Sean Prendergast, who, between the two, have experience at Rover, Panther Cars and Grand Prix Engineering Services. They have also run their own composites company designing and manufacturing for the likes of Prodrive (see Prodrive P2), Alvis and JCB.

The X Works Automotive X1 Concept sports car uses a unique carbon composite technology for the manufacture of the cars passenger cell. Attached to this are lightweight aluminium and carbon subframes carrying the drivetrain components.

The X1's composite technology provides an incredibly stiff platform and also helps keep the cars weight down to a lightweight 1180kg (2601 lbs) . Combined with the race honed chassis and potent 2 litre 4 cylinder turbo charged 350 bhp engine, this provides truly electrifying performance. Tuning options of up to 500 bhp are available, and Recaro CS seats are fitted as standard. There is also a 1000 kg X1 competition version designed for track days or outright competition use.
