Brabus Classic has announced plans to display a handful of models at the Techno Classica show.

The Mercedes 280 SL will take center stage as Brabus will display three different models including a W 111 series and a W 113 Pagoda. The company will also showcase a 280 SE 3.5 Cabriolet, a 560 SL (R 107) and a rolling chassis from a 300 SL Gullwing.

According to Brabus, the restoration process starts with a complete disassembly of the base car to the "last nut and bolt." The components are then inspected and catalogued to determine which parts are able to be reconditioned.

While work is being performed on the body, the engine is disassembled so it can be completely overhauled. The transmission, driveshaft and differential are also restored to ensure everything is in working order.

As the car is getting put back together, all the suspension and brake components are replaced by new parts to ensure the car is safe to drive.

Even the interior is improved as employees recondition the wood trim and reupholster the cabin with high quality cloth or leather.

Brabus says the restoration process takes thousands of hours to complete and "does not come cheap."
