Workshop: A simple transaction evolved into a personalised interior redesign reflective of its owner’s unique identity.

Workshop: A simple transaction evolved into a personalised interior redesign reflective of its owner’s unique identity.

We are all familiar with these cars and their unique charm, each standing out in its own way. Take, for instance, this car we recently sold, a modified Porsche 911 SC with distinctive upgrades, including ‘73 RS tribute bodywork and 3.2-litre short-stroke engine producing 286bhp. With that in mind, it’s not only the cars that have their own character. So do we, individuals, with our quirks and preferences. 

This particular car found its match with its new owner, who, upon setting eyes on it, knew it was the perfect fit—well, almost. Due to his tall stature, there was a slight hurdle to overcome, and that was the car required modifications to the driving position if he was to proceed. Fortunately, our team are more than capable of accommodating these modifications, yet the client’s vision extended beyond mere adjustments. He desired a complete interior overhaul, tailored to his specific taste, and this is something we could also facilitate for him.

These requirements included remanufacturing some interior panels to reflect the design from earlier models, including a specific and personalised design for the door cards, which were all created in house before a full retrim in black and tan Muirhead leather, with detailed stitching. New, period Deser seats featuring cream hounds-tooth inserts and a black carpet set to tie it all together. Furthermore, the client sought practicality alongside aesthetics, specifying an integrated phone holder with wireless charging in the knee roll, which again, we were able to create in our workshop.

In the end, what began as a simple transaction to purchase a car, evolved into a collaborative journey, culminating in a personalised experience reflective of its new owner’s unique identity.
