Merlin McCormack


‘I’m always keen to give advice, and if I don’t think someone should buy one of my cars, I’ll tell them,’ says Merlin McCormack, who started Duke of London in 2014 at the tender age of just 20. Cars are in his blood; he helped restore classics in the Romance of Rust workshop owned by his father Lance when he was eight, and was making a profit selling marques on eBay by the age of 11.

McCormack became a private equity broker in the City before returning to the workshop after some advice he gave to a client
of his father’s ‘snowballed into a business’. Today, Duke of London specialises in the acquisition and sale of collector cars, motorcycles and bicycles.
