How & Why it All Ended
Educated at King Henry VIII School and Lanchester College in Coventry, Barrie commenced his career as an indentured apprentice at Jaguar from 1959 to 1964. He left Jaguar in 1968 to achieve infamy through his roles with the Reliant Robin, DeLorean and Sinclair C5. He founded the project management business de Montfort and worked in Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan, China, India and Iran for governments and vehicle manufacturers, and undertook interim management roles for the British Department of Trade and Industry, Lotus, Lamborghini and Land Rover. His attempts to save the MG brand from Chinese ownership and to resurrect the smart roadster as the MG Midget and later the AC Ace were thwarted by the 2008 global financial crisis. Barrie is a Freeman of the City of Coventry and a proud member of the Jaguar eXs, an association of former-apprentices.
