MAHLE has been given the 2016 RetroClassicsCultur award by the 20-member jury of Retro Classics meets Barock. The award is for special services to the preservation of the historical automotive cultural heritage, according to MAHLE.
Many engine parts in MAHLE Aftermarket’s Classics Line were developed and jointly produced with the manufacturers for original equipment purposes. MAHLE has the original design drawings-some of which date back to the 1950s-that the company bases current specifications on, ensuring the same level of quality and expertise the components were produced to originally, according to the company.
MAHLE Aftermarket’s Classics Line has been expanded to include more components for vintage, neo-classic and modern classic cars. The company recently manufactured pistons for the Porsche 917.
“We are delighted to receive the RetroClassicsCultur award,” said Olaf Henning, managing director of MAHLE Aftermarket. “In particular, it recognizes our endeavors to preserve the historical automotive cultural heritage using modern production techniques.”
“This is a very fantastic award for MAHLE, said Jonathan Walker, managing director of MAHLE Aftermarket UK, “It shows the depth of our abilities as a component and systems supplier and our dedication and commitment to all aspects of the automotive aftermarket, past, present and future.”
