In our private collection, we have some unique and very personal projects driven out of pure automotive passion. We use cars that are in really bad shape, that otherwise would be scrapped. With them we create unique projects that are mostly used for racing events. The cars undergo full restorations both aesthetically and mechanically and are upgraded with enhanced performance parts but retaining all the period correct modifications.

 

Now that we've got your attention, please see below all the mods and specs we will be applying in this project. Our aim is to have the restoration done and ready for the 2023 Mille Miglia!

 

Enjoy

Project #GT
1/1

All pictures are examples of cars and parts we will use for this project, all rights to respective owners.

Our current project, nicknamed "GT", is based on a 1954 Volkswagen Oval window Beetle, painstakingly restored and retaining all its original characteristics with no irreversible modifications made. The inspiration for this project comes from the Porsche 356A 1500 Carrera GT, from which all the styling queues are retained and faithfully reproduced to suit this project, enhanced with mechanical and period correct parts.
