Established in 1997, Turbosmart was built on humble beginnings by CEO & Founder Nic Cooper. It was his pure passion for race performance that led him to design the very first product, a BOV type 1, which he hand-crafted on a steel lathe, from a small garage in Sydney, Australia.
For many years the company witnessed significant success on a local scene. It quickly established itself as one of the most prolific brands amongst industry professionals and wasn’t long before the businesses fame spread, and exports started into other markets.

This was a necessary step to gain control of the growing quality, volume, and prototyping demands. Turbosmart now operates nine CNC machines 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Yes! it still uses those original two machines.
