Replicar Hellas (RCH)
Based in Katerini, Greece, this company manufactures a range of 356 Speedster replicas and other replicas based on the Speedster theme using type 1 and type 4 VW air-cooled engines.
Replicar Hellas owner Elias Gaganelis grew up in Germany and studied automotive engineering before starting the company in 2008. He has many years of experience working for German automakers and has managed to secure TÜV approval for RCH in the strict markets of Germany and Austria.
Cars are only available in RHD form and not available as self-build kits. Ironically the cars cannot be registered on Greek plates thanks to the unique Greek bureaucracy delays regarding Type Approval. There is a wealth of information about the range of options available on RCH's excellent and detailed website at: www.replicarhellas.com
