Hemmels Limited, a specialist Mercedes-Benz classic car restoration company, delivered four cars to clients, worth over £1.2M, in the first three weeks of October, setting a new record for the company. The company expects to match the record of client deliveries in November.

Most of the cars were personally delivered to clients in the UK and overseas. One client collected the car at the Hemmels factory and safely drove it home some 200 miles away during storm Callum.

Offering a new car buying experience, clients order a Mercedes-Benz classic car in the colours of their choice along with a selection of bespoke options and preferences. Hemmels then restores the cars according to the exacting standards of its trademarked Neugeboren (“newborn”) Process where every car is fully dismantled and rebuilt from its bare metal beginnings over a 52 week period. Like a new car purchase, a full 12 month parts and labour warranty is included along with servicing options.

Hemmels focuses on classic Mercedes-Benz SL motorcars including the iconic 300 SL Gullwing, 300 SL Roadster, 280 SL Pagoda and 190 SL Roadster.

Prices for a Hemmels restored classic motorcar range from £225K GBP ($295K USD) to over £1.7M GBP ($2.2M USD) for the more coveted models. The value of Hemmels cars has risen, on average, 24% since 2016.

Each car takes approximately 4,000 man hours to restore.

“Every day for a year our craftsmen see and work on a motorcar, coaxing it back to perfection, ready for another 60 years of enjoyment.” said Joseph Sullivan, MD Hemmels. “By putting our heart and soul into these restorations it is bittersweet when the car leaves us, but seeing the smiles on our clients’ faces make it worthwhile.”

Hemmels is pleased to welcome interested parties for a personal tour of the showroom and facilities through prior appointment. The company will be displaying a selection of its classic cars at the Lancaster Classic Car show, NEC, Birmingham, UK from November 9 – 11, 2018.


Thank you for reading my articles and engaging with the hand picked PICANTE News!

Here are a few things you should know about me!

After accumulating enough experience by launching and building a successful media and events organizer company in the gaming industry, the opportunity to also move into more verticals just came naturally.

I've started writting in 2009 and thanks to my webdesigner skills, managed to develop some recognized review portals in several industries.

In 2015, I have moved deeper into journalism and media by co-founding a B2B publishing and events organizing company which we run in parallel with PICANTE New. My experience has lead me to move into the B2B sector and write about compliance updates and report around the happenings of the online and land based gaming sector.

In 2018 I've been invited to speak at a local TEDx event about Global Reputation Management in the Digital Era. You can view my talk on the following link on YouTube:

I have hunger for knowledge and always curious about what happens in tech and this is one of the reasons I've started writing and publishing news about several industries, such as AI, VR / AR, Blockhchain, Fintech. Came to realize there are many new things that are often overlooked in the busy media streams, thus would like to bring you some news about some of the newest releases and happenings.

But enough about me, I am sure you are interested in reading the news :)
