The Touring Certificate of Authentic Restoration

The value of each classic car restored by Touring Superleggera is enhanced by the Certificate of authentic restoration. It determines that the restoration is performed not only according to the art book, but also respecting rules and processes of the age they were built.

The certification requires a compelling historical research, the sourcing of original parts or their reconstruction based on original blueprints, the use of techniques contemporary to the construction age, and extends to the research of compatible colour palettes.

If the restored car has Touring bodywork, the certification extends to the truthful respect of the authentic shapes and details.
