Our thoughts on swindle attempts


There have always been scammers in the replica car market, , but since we got established as a company, we have detected an alarming growth of fake companies, which take advantage not only from our work, also use pictures from other well known manufacturers (or just renting oem cars ) and launch fraudulent advertisements. We ourselves have been ripped off and even our friends and customers have reported cases of scam.

We, above all, are passionate of replica cars, and have assisted some our customers in countless issues in which they have purchased a car abroad in order to save some money, from amateur builders or under qualified companies. In some cases, we were able to help our customers; in some others, regrettably, there was no solution to the problem. Therefore, if you wish to order or purchase from a trustful manufacturer, please take into account all points we have prepared for you in our section 'Important'.

Make your home works. Compare, check, and do not turn crazy with awesome offers. Use your common sense in order to avoid a purchase of a car which you will never be able to homologate, will be unsafe for you and for other cars on the road, or even worse: do not exist at all or the company will be unable to meet your expectations.

Please never send a money transfer through Western Union, MoneyGram or other transfer services without having seen the car personally. Do not trust pictures or videos, even if they are very convincing. It is better to take a flight to where the car is and take a look at the car in person. If it is a serious company, they will have some other cars to show, so it proves they are reliable. You'd better spend your money and time making sure you deal with trustful companies than waste what your dream car is worth!

Replica and kit cars are the only vehicles that are worth what you actually pay. If the car it´s very economical, please take care about the condition of the base cars, spare parts or work quality, the end result may not meet your expectations.

It is very hard to find a base car that meets all necessary features to make a perfect replica at an economical price. Please do not trust ads which offer exact features of the original at cheap prices: it might likely be a picture of the original car and, at best, pictures or videos taken from other builds/manufacturers. Could be the man/hour price will be cheap in other countries, but, engines, wheels, brakes, etc, cost nearly the same in all countries.

Updated information according to latest amends on law 01/14/2011:

- T.Ü.V. homologation applies only in Germany. It is NOT equivalent in Spain.

- A replica built outside Spain cannot be homologated.

- Due to excessive costs, take care about homologations (homologation could be incorrect or fraudulent) of cars manufactured with space frames (except if it is an authorized manufacturer in Spain), or frames with modified distance of axles.

- Cars with modifications in parts of the frame (e.g. Roof in replica of Peugeot 406) can´t be homologated.

We would like to inform you that in case of fake homologation, if an accident happens, both, the insurance company, the former owner (individual or company) and the workshop responsible for remodeling or authorizing it, can deny their responsibilities by claiming that the remodeling has been done afterwards. Thus the owner or driver of the vehicle would be held solely responsible.

FAQs

Mainly for Spanish customers. Please, ask us for any doubt.

So far, due to the Spanish law restrictions, the custom chassis was a slow (from two to three years), long and very expensive process (over €150,000). The final price was far than competitive. From September 2015, we have managed to reduce the cost of this process to just €25,000, opening a world of possibilities and getting, at very reasonable prices, highly accurate products.

If you live in a country where modified base cars or custom frames are easily/cheap approved and registered, we can do it without these extra fees.

We must to clarify the difference between donor car (which give parts for use in a tubular chassis) and base car (which basically only change the exterior and/or interior without changing structure).

Decisions are a matter for the new car. Whether it is a replica, or a custom design, all the cars do not serve this purpose.

Mind on this: the structure cannot be modified (except at a cost equivalent to a tubular chassis, so it normally ceases to be an interesting option).

We mean the shape and position of the cab on the wheels axles.

Example: A base car as the Nissan 350 Z is ideal for Ferrari California style car, but it would be completely wrong for a Lamborghini Aventador style design.

It is not as long as you do not get any profit from it and its use is strictly personal. However, we do believe that doing so diminishes the value of your custom car.

No, they do not. If wheel spacers are made of a certain material and rack, it will give more stability to the car. However, wheel spacers wear all bearings more quickly, so they must be checked every 50,000 km or be replaced by reinforced ones.

Sure, you can, either personally in our workshop or through internet. We will send you pictures of the process by email periodically.
