DURATION OF RESTORATION

Every collector automobile is different, including its condition and overall finish.  A brand new collector automobile requires the shortest amount of time given that is has not been used yet.  That does not mean that there is no damage present.  Poor storage, transporation and preparation creates significant damage only visible to experts.  As a result, every project is treated as bespoke, since this is a luxury service and there is no such thing as one size fits all.  In the case of very extensive restorations including mechanics and chassis work, this would not fall under this category but that of our Automobile Restorations service where absolutely everything is covered.  For more information on this type of restoration duration, please contact us for your automobile and a thorough report will be created and provided.

NOT A CAR WASH | NOT DETAILING

 

A PERMANENT & COMPLETE 

PROTECTION & COSMETIC RESTORATION PROGRAM

THE DREAM

DRIVING & ENJOYING COLLECTOR AUTOMOBILES SAFELY

Georgiou-Botaris Automobile Couture's founder; Rami Georgiou-Botaris, has been very privileged to have spent the majority of his life studying and working on the world's finest automobiles and marques.

As with any automobile enthusiast and owner, Rami was always worried about the preservation, enhancement as well as the protection of his personal automobile as well as those that his friends gave to him.

Collector automobiles, whether brand new or vintage; were designed and manufactured to be driven and enjoyed by their owners as well as fellow enthusiasts coming across them alike.  With this thought in mind, how would a collector be able to do so without risking any form of damage to his or her investment?

THE RESULT

RESTORATION | ENHANCEMENT |  PROTECTION​

SIGNATURE PROGRAMS

Georgiou-Botaris Automobile Couture and its team designed a solution of providing a complete cosmetic restoration and protection program to restore, enhance and fully protect the most beautiful, rare and priceless collector automobiles around the world.

This is not to be confused with detailing, since this is much more extensive, comprehensive and elaborate; requiring great expertise and classic automobile knowledge.  Considering impeccable mechanics, automobiles that are eligible for this service have every visible component as well as every type of material treated, corrected, restored and protected wherever permissible, resulting in a brand new and flawless collector automobile to be thoroughly enjoyed.

Through years of trial and experimentation, only hand-selected equipment and tools are used, as well as products specifically made for different types of unique and rare automobile marques and their specific materials; complemented by our highest levels of expertise and workmanship.

 

Our team's experience, knowledge and understanding of collector automobiles form the basis of the company's obsession to offer clients a truly luxurious and unique experience.

There are specific conditions for an automobile to be eligible for this service, and every vehicle is treated as bespoke with specific procedures, treatment applications as well as coachwork requirements specifically designed for the marque and model in question.  Please note that a vehicle being completely restored, falling under our Automobile Restorations category of service; has this program automatically included.  However, for a collector automobile to fall under this category, all components, panels and miscellaneous parts need to be present.  Automobiles requiring repainting will be charged additionally in accordance to the required work.

A HIGHLY EXCLUSIVE PROGRAM BASED ON OUR THREE STAGES

RESTORATION | ENHANCEMENT |  PROTECTION​

THE FIRST STEP

The first step is the Restoration phase.  The automobile is thoroughly examined, studied and assessed as to what needs to be done as well as the duration of the work.  Whether a frequent driver, or a rare find as the Ferrari in these images; every automobile entering our atelier will be fully restored to perfection.

SERVICE DESCRIPTION

Whether an automobile coming from a dealership, a barn find or even a museum piece, the automobile is picked up by our dedicated transport service where it is delivered to our atelier.  Once at our atelier, the automobile is thoroughly examined, prepared and cleansed before any of the restoration work may be performed.  Once the work begins, every single component and aspect of the aesthetical appearance will be thoroughly and painstakingly restored to surgical precision, resulting in a perfect automobile example.

RESTORATION | ENHANCEMENT |  PROTECTION​

THE SECOND STEP

Once the Restoration Phase has been completed and everything is perfect, comes the second step: Enhancement.  In this phase we focus on rendering everything even more beautiful and immaculate with a better quality than factory specification (upon client request).  Everything is painstakingly catered to with our unique expertise and technique, using only the very best in automobile preparation and care equipment.

SERVICE DESCRIPTION

Every type of surface, material and component is treated individually to a thorough enhancement that embellishes as well as protects the finish.  Especially with vintage collector automobiles having fragile components, we ensure that these are enhanced and protected after the restoration phase to guarantee swift and easy maintenance as well as durability. With regard to the coachwork, extensive and expert polishing techniques are done to render an even more beautiful finish and depth of paintwork.

RESTORATION | ENHANCEMENT |  PROTECTION

THE FINAL & ULTIMATE STEP

During the Enhancement phase and while your collector automobile is dismantled following its cosmetic restoration, the Protection phase is the ultimate finale.  A fully bespoke and complete paint protection film is expertly installed on all of the coachwork as well as its components to fully guard the automobile against any damage.  Using only the best paint protection film, this is resistant to the heaviest of scratches, rock chips, oxidation as well as being able to absorb the majority of light to medium impacts.  A collector automobile was made to be driven, and with our Protection phase, nothing will ever be damaged with the correct maintenance and care.

SERVICE DESCRIPTION

Applying the paint protection film throughout the entire automobile requires time and expertise.  The best time to do this would be when the automobile is completely dismantled, which is why we choose to do this in conjunction with the Enhancement phase.  All components have completely bespoke paint protection film created and wrapped around them, for which the coachwork also has a unique and complete application.  We only work with the very best paint protection film manufacturers, resulting in applications that are invisible once installed, yet durable for many years with care and maintenance as well as with warranty.

PROGRAMS WITH SPECIFIC & HIGHLY SPECIALISED APPROACHES

FOR DIFFERENT AUTOMOBILE CATEGORIES

For any classic collector automobile, the entire automobile is disassembled in order to extensively restore every single component before reassembly, enhancement followed by protection.
