OUR CLAIM TO MAKE A PERFECT ORIGINAL FROM EVERY 300 SL

EVERY ONE OF OUR RESTORED VEHILCES IS UNIQUE AND HAS ITS OWN CHARACTER

Every restoration project begins with an extremely detailed examination of all of the individual parts. They are labeled, categorized, modularly sorted and stored. Adhering to the company’s philosophy as few parts as possible are exchanged or renewed. Rather, great importance is attached to the fact that parts belonging to the car are restored as faithfully as possible and then reinstalled. Every car, thus, keeps its original identity.

Before work begins, a detailed restoration plan is drawn up and discussed and agreed in detail with the customer. This plan is the basis used to manage and carry out the many, individual, work steps with the highest level of quality and efficiency and, at the same time, respecting the time aspects of the plan. Thus it is possible to carry out the complex restauration process in a comparably tight timeframe.
