Panel beating department

Through decades of experience, our panel beaters bring their skills to the way they work.

With this skill you will undo previous pseudo-restorations or revise them professionally.


Engine construction department

Our engines are particularly known for their reliability and durability. In order to maintain these principles, our development engines and also any overhauled engine are retracted on the test bench and checked for performance before being reinstalled into the vehicle. This ensures that the engine meets our performance specifications. The soul of the original Elfer from 1964 lives on in our turbo engines.


Paint department
