6-Star Restoration.

Nothing else.


Vintage automobiles with new-car warranty. Between 1,500 and 4,000 man hours depending on the vehicle, the know-how from nearly 40 years of automotive engineering, countless new parts and meticulous attention to detail — this is how we make vintage vehicles with new-car character. To emphasize their extraordinary perfection, we give these restorations the quality seal "6 stars". To this end, we have our vehicles assessed, after completion of work, by Classic Data, the leading vintage car expert organization, on a regular basis. And just as regularly, Classic Data awards the score "Excellent" to all vehicles presented based on the unique quality and authenticity of restoration. Including the addition that our vintage cars are classics with "new-car character". That means that our classic automobiles are fully suitable for daily use!

But no matter whether we are talking about the complete renovation or a partial restoration of the body, enhancement or repair of the interior, restoration of woodwork, or engine varnishing or reconditioning — the BRABUS Classic Team fulfils every one of your wishes perfectly.

We emphasize the highest conceivable quality in the execution of all work by giving a warranty promise: all Mercedes-Benz classic automobiles that have been fully restored by BRABUS are provided with a two-year unlimited mileage warranty.

This is how the BRABUS Classic team does restorations.

We always work close to the old substance.

The 6-star restoration of a Mercedes-Benz classic is always based on the principle of reusing as many original parts as possible. That means we work close to the substance and discard only those components that definitely need to be replaced. We start by disassembling the base car in our workshop down to the last nut and bolt. In this process, all parts are inspected and catalogued. Unserviceable components are discarded and others which are suitable for

reconditioning restored to mint condition by our specialists, such as chrome

parts that simply need replating. The bodyshell is then completely stripped of paint, reconditioned by experienced master bodywork specialists and given a catalytic dip primer coating. The scope of the restoration also comprises perfect corrosion protection using cutting-edge technology to protect the paint as well as a perfect paint job in the original colour.

While work on the body is going on, the engine is completely disassembled in the BRABUS high-tech engine shop, and all parts are measured. The rebuilding process includes grinding and honing the cylinders as well as overhauling the cylinder head. The engine smoothness outperforms that of the original engine in the end. Our powertrain technicians use the same precision in overhauling the drivetrain including the transmission, driveshaft and differential.


There are also no compromises with regard to suspension and brakes: all components are replaced with new parts and thus offer optimal active safety. Our in-house leather and upholstery shop makes cloth and leather interiors as well as carpeting in any colour, perfectly and fully authentically finished to the smallest detail. The product lineup includes materials in precisely the same colour as the original that once came off the assembly lines as well as in any other colour conceivable.

The soft tops for the drop-top Mercedes-Benz models are also manufactured in any desired colour and the same high quality. Our finish carpenters specialize in reconditioning all cockpit wood inlays or in creating completely new ones from the same type of wood.


After work in the various departments is completed, the classic Mercedes car is reassembled with utmost precision. It goes without saying that in the process not only all mechanical wear parts, but also all seals and gaskets are replaced. Prior to being delivered to the
customer — depending on the destination either as a VIP transport in a closed truck or by air freight — every vehicle is subjected to extensive functional testing as well as safety and quality checks.
