“Lovingly Restored Bespoke Figaros”
We are well known for building bespoke Figaros for our customers, we take great pride in this work and it has always been the companies flagship service. The process begins with our clients visiting and taking a tour of our workshops, seeing the work we produce and discussing the options which are open to them. Cars are paired to each project and built to order, to exact specifications. We have a standard minimum specification for the bodywork, mechanical work and chassis condition, then offer upgrades to truly personalise your new car. We have been building custom Figaros for around 10 years and our services come highly recommend by our clients and The Figaro Owners club. We are absolutely confident in the standard of our work.
“Your Figaro the way you like it”
Below is a guide to the work carried out on a Figaro supplied by The Figaro Shop. This may vary very slightly from car to car but will to give you an idea of how we spend around 300 hours of labour time and approx £3000 parts. All work listed is guaranteed to be completed, anything else that needs doing will also be completed as part of the project. On top of this all other parts are removed, cleaned, restored or replaced and then re installed. You can also see some of the most popular upgrades.
