Ferrari 500 Superfast restoration completed

Full bare metal respray and refurbishment carried out.
Two areas of particular interest with this rebuild were:
  • Finding old paint in the windscreen area that when analysed with a spectrometer and with slight tinting to colour correct, enabled us to match the paint to how it came from the factory.
  • Locating 40 year old hides for the interior.

As you can see chassis already looks superb and we cannot wait to work our magic on the body.

Ferrari 250 Lusso bare metal respray begins

Time had taken its toll on the existing paintwork and the car was in urgent need of a sympathetic bare metal respray. We are pleased to be carrying out this task.

Total body off, full nut and bolt restoration over two years.

The hurdles we had to overcome to bring this car back to its former glory were multitude, but the pictures below speak for themselves. The end result is superb.

Range Rover Velar to Berlin!

The pre-production Range Rover Velar NXC245H we renovated earlier this summer has recently returned from Germany where it participated in the Hamburg-Berlin Klassik rally. To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Range Rover, Land Rover Germany entered a three-car team of Range Rovers in the event...appropriately enough, in red, white and blue colours!

The rally followed a meandering route across northern Germany from Hamburg to Wolfsburg, where a tremendous evening of entertainment was laid on by VW Audi at the Autostadt complex, and then on to Berlin.

Team Range Rover managed to come fourth in the team awards and NXC245H finished in 36th place out of a total of 180 entrants.

To quote our client's own words "...I was delighted with the work on the car...the tailgate is a masterpiece!"
