Founded by Paul Bracq’s family

“When I designed the Mercedes 230 SL Pagoda, I never imagined that it would be such a success nor that so many fans would celebrate its fiftieth birthday in 2013. When I’m asked to tell its story, I say that at that time, we were animated by an indestructible passion for the automobile and that our level of quality requirement led us to design this car which became emblematic of the Mercedes brand.
These values, I transmitted them to my children and this is with the same spirit, the pursuit of perfection in the work and with the same passion that my children have founded Les ateliers Paul Bracq, in order to provide the demanding fans of the cars that I once designed, a service of maintenance and restoration of high quality, true to the origins, and this way, to participate to keep alive the legend of these cars.” Paul Bracq
