The Peerless was a British car made by Peerless Cars Ltd. Of Slough, Berkshire, between 1957 and 1960, when the company failed. The company was resurrected by one of the original founders, Bernie Rodger, as Bernard Roger Developments BRD Ltd and marketed as the Warwick from a base in Colnbrook, Bucknighamshire, between 1960 and 1962.

The prototype of this British-built sports saloon, which was alloy bodied and initially named the Warwick, was designed by Bernie Rodger for company founders John Gordon and James Byrnes.  The car had been renamed the Peerless GT by the time series production started in 1957. It featured Triumph TR3 running gear in a tubular space frame with de Dion tube rear suspension clothed in attractive fibreglass 4-seater bodywork. While the car had good performance it was expensive to produce and the overall fit and finish was not as good as that of similarly priced models from mainstream manufacturers.  Paradoxically, these flaws have become over time assets for enlightened collectors.   The Phase II version had an improved body largely moulded in one piece.  A works car was entered in the 1958 24 Hours of Le Mans, finishing 16th.  Production ceased in 1960 after about 325 examples had been produced.  It is estimated that there are only about forty left in Britain, and barely a few in other countries.
