Brabus is known to convert humble and luxurious Mercedes Benz cars into fire breathing monsters with enough power that can move planets along; however, there is this part of the German company that is in a business of slightly more delicate and classic sort of work, such as classic car restoration. Understanding there is a huge niche market out there that can be captured, Brabus is in the process of expanding its Brabus Classic operation, which deals in taking older cars and restoring them to their original avatars and its services are described as “6-Star Certified High-Quality Restoration” levels.
In order to promote this line of Classic Car restoration business, Brabus Classic, the parent company during this spring season is going to show off a collection of Mercedes-Benz models it has recently restored and that includes a few iconic cars such as a 300 SL Gullwing and a Roadster, two W113 280 SL Roadsters, and a 1967 Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman. The Pullman is the same car that was used as the show car at the Frankfurt auto show.
Restoring a classic is a painstaking work that requires time, precision and a lot of passion and understanding of the significance and the history of the vehicle you are dealing with, both to the automobile world and to the owner of the car as well. The team of engineers at Brabus Classic whoo perform its restorations, starts their work by completely disassembling the car that has come to them for restoration. The disassembled car is then cataloged for the condition of every single part and piece. After this, the highly skilled technicians at Brabus Classic decide on whether a specific part can be reused, can be reconditioned, or it needs to be scrapped entirely.
This is not all, the restoration process involves the entire body shell to be stripped, go through corrosion-protected, and then repainted. The same process goes on for the engine, which is disassembled and rebuilt to exacting specifications. The team uses all new leather for the interior upholstery and so does too the cars suspension components and brakes, which are totally replaced with new components. When everything is finally investigated, improved and is given an all new life they cars are finally fully put back together. After the complete assembly, Brabus technicians perform a series of quality and safety checks in order to ensure that the car is back to the company’s exacting standards, and only after everything is thoroughly checked and passed, the restored car is then returned to the customer.
As per Brabus, its team at Brabus Classic invests in between 1500 to 4000 man hours on every classic car restoration process, which shows the thoroughness of the restoration process. Furthermore, Brabus Classic ahs the honour of being a recognized partner of Mercedes-Benz Classic, and it provides a two-year warranty on every car it restores.
