As from today, FCA Heritage’s Officine Classiche workshops - set inside the Mirafiori plant in Turin - are operative again: suspended due to the COVID-19 emergency, the certification and restoration activities have resumed service.
Naturally, Officine Classiche will apply the new health and safety guidelines, developed by the FCA Group with the help of leading Italian virologists. The measures are already in force throughout all FCA’s Italian operations - from factories to dealerships.
Established in 2015 in the headquarters of Abarth & C. in Via Plava in Turin, inside the former Officina 83 of Mirafiori plant, the Officine Classiche area hosts the repair, restoration and certification activities concerning classic cars, whether belonging to private collectors or to the magnificent FCA Heritage collection. The accuracy and fidelity of each intervention is guaranteed by the use of the original production data and technical drawings of every model, kept in the company archives, and also by the unique experience of the FCA Heritage team of specialists.
In the Officine Classiche workshops, owners of vintage Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Lancia and Abarth cars find the key skills and unrivaled quality standards necessary for furthering their passion. Indeed, the same team that cares for the FCA collection is also available to private customers, with services ranging from simple maintenance – including that of racing models, which require specific checks before taking to the racetrack – to complete restoration: including diagnosis, interior restoration, repair of individual mechanical and aesthetic components... and complete final testing.
As well as its restoration and repair works, Officine Classiche activities focused on issuing "Certifications of Authenticity” will also be resumed. When every aspect of the vintage car has been analyzed in detail, and its production data and technical specifications in the company archives scrupulously verified, FCA Heritage certifies the vehicle’s authenticity, thus underlining its value. The Certificate of Authenticity is available for classic models of the Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Lancia and Abarth brands and – if the customer prefers – the analysis of the car can also be performed at the owner’s home, in complete safety.
