FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

Welcome to car design for coachbuilding FAQ

Coachbuilding has a long history and tradition that stretches back over 100 years. In the early motoring days, when series production did not yet exist, the process of acquiring a new vehicle involved purchasing a chassis. After that, the customer approached a carrozzeria or coachbuilder, requesting a personal body design to be fitted on the chassis.

What is the indicative investment for designing and making a coachbuilt motorcar?

An indication of the investment comes from an exploratory conversation that can be held in our design studio, where we discuss your goals, the amount of work that needs to be done and the typology of conversion you have in mind.

You determine the budget yourself by deciding on the base vehicle and your wishes regarding coachbuilding activities.

How long does it take to design and coachbuilt a one-off vehicle?

Usually between 12-24 months. All is depending on your ideas, the complexity of the base vehicle and requested design.

For instance: do you envision a full rebody and new interior design or a part-only exterior conversion.
