Maintenance, Repairs & Restoration
Classic and vintage cars are more than just “vehicles”. They breathe history, they are covered with legends and myths – they are simply part of our automotive heritage. Classic cars were also our passion. That is why we take on the professional refurbishment, partial restoration and maintenance of the cars that are close to your heart. With attention to detail, the highest precision and a lot of competence.
Modern technology paired with traditional craftsmanship are the foundations for an accurate in every detail restoration of your classic car, at the same time guaranteeing highest authenticity in case of a complete rebuild. If a 100 per cent authentic restoration is not your main priority and you wish a moderate modernisation instead, of course we fulfil all your special requests as well.
We want to preserve your classic car as original as possible. That’s why during restoration and repairs – next to a visual and technical perfect result – we aim for guaranteed longevity. Be it chassis, suspension, engine, transmission, electrics, body or interior: If necessary, our specialists remanufacture parts, which are not available any more. Also if necessary, they use traditional craftsmanship, which most modern work shops have forgotten long time ago.
Complete and partial restorations, vehicle preparation, maintenance and repair, engine and transmission overhauls, interior and saddlery work as well as vehicle storage – at SSR Performance no classic car wishes are left unfulfilled.

For a proper complete restoration, we start with disassembling your car. We check every part and rebuild all areas: suspension, drive train, electrics, body and finally interior and upholstery. Each and every part will be reconditioned or replaced – as close to the original as possible. We are happy to document every single step of this demanding process in words and pictures. Thus, you can retrace the whole restoration in every detail. When in the end a seasoned jewel shines in new splendour, we proudly give the old “new” gem back into your hands for the years to come.
In case your classic car does not require a complete overhaul, but only individual parts need to be repaired, reconditioned or replaced, we are also available to you with the highest level of expertise.
Do you feel the desire to have your classic car really polished again? Then you are exactly right with us! We prepare your vehicle professionally by exclusively using high-quality cleaning and polishing agents. We make your classic car shine again.
Maintenance & Repairs
If your job is to professionally maintain and repair classic cars, trial and error is not an option. Instead, you have to rely on experience. In addition to our own expertise, we have a huge stock of spare parts which are no longer available from other sources. We also established a worldwide network of classic car specialists, which helps us to locate even the most exotic parts. As a last resort, our experts are often able to recreate a spare part in our own manufactory.
Rebuilding of Engines & Gearboxes
To start the rebuild of an engine, we completely disassemble it and measure every single part. Thus, we are able to evaluate wear and tear in order to specify the necessary restoration work. Depending on its condition, the part can be reconditioned or has to be replaced.
In the same way, we treat gearboxes. They also will be completely disassembled to evaluate wear and tear. Afterwards, we recondition the parts or opt for a replacement, if necessary. If the needed parts are not in stock or no longer available from the market, we remanufacture them according to the original specification. The result always will be: perfect functioning, longevity and durability.
Interior & Upholstery
A classic car consists not only of an engine and a gearbox. It derives its charm also from a posh interior or the design from times gone by. That’s why we – exactly as with engines and gearboxes – try to revitalize the car’s original condition. Better to maintain than to renew, is our motto. With careful craftsmanship we tackle small cracks, worn spots or faded leather. Only when proper reconditioning is not possible, we replace parts like padding, cloth, wood or leather, using only material of highest quality. The result always will highlight the classic appearance, but with a fresh, young look.
If you want to store your car for a longer time, at the same time protecting it from environmental hazards, you are more than welcome to rent a space in our fully automated, nitrogen filled garage, offering 141 places. By doing this, you keep your car in perfect shape, easily causing an increase in value. Due to the low oxygen content in the garage’s air, your vehicle is effectively protected from fire and corrosion. The risk of theft is also close to zero, because our high security system does not allow any intrusion.
The love for classic cars often is put into one’s cradle. Who falls for the passion of classic cars and the respective lifestyle, rarely can explain it rationally. But the fantastic driving fun connected to classic cars has an electrifying effect on most people. Believe us, we are speaking from experience.
Enjoy relaxed tours or make classic car rallies with your own classic car a unique experience. We always ensure that your vehicle is fit to travel. Of course, you can also just be happy with your car’s increase of value. Our high-grade restoration, professional maintenance and appropriate storage secures stability or increase in value.
