4th May 2022: Everrati Automotive Limited (Everrati) and Hilton & Moss together announce a new strategic partnership, combining their respective expertise in EV conversion and classic car restoration to produce the Mercedes-Benz W113 SL ‘Pagoda’ model redefined by Everrati. The Hilton & Moss team – based at a 125,000 sq/ft site in Bishop’s Stortford – has worked with Mercedes-Benz models for more than 40 years, entrusted with the restoration of priceless 300SL Gullwings, alongside its other work with icons from Jaguar, Aston Martin and more.
Headquartered at a specialist facility in Oxfordshire, UK, Everrati is the leading technology company redefining some of the most iconic cars in the automotive industry by seamlessly integrating cutting-edge, in-house developed OEM-standard electric powertrains. Everrati’s customers are united by a common desire to own and drive beautiful icons sustainably in a low carbon world.
The Mercedes-Benz W113 SL ‘Pagoda’ model becomes the latest model to benefit from technology from the best Tier 1 automotive suppliers and the company’s sector-leading IP. Focussing on immersive and engaging driver experiences, Everrati works meticulously to respectfully preserve the original character and ‘feel’ of its redefined icons. Everrati’s Mercedes-Benz W113 SL ‘Pagoda’ remains true to this ethos, offering levels of performance comparable to the original model.
Boasting over 100 years of combined experience, the specialist team at Hilton & Moss enhance the electrified driving experience with a loving restoration of each vehicle from the ground up. Stripped down to a bare chassis, repaired and sealed for decades of future use, then meticulously built up again using original, refreshed parts where possible, the end result is a car that’s more perfectly finished than even the day it originally left the factory. Hilton & Moss restorations have won awards at some of the UK’s finest concours d’elegance events, including Salon Privé and the Warren Concours.
With paint shop, engine shop, trim shop, machine shop and coachworks on-site, Hilton & Moss carries out 95% of its restoration work entirely in-house, ensuring the quality of the work completed. Having specialised in the restoration and sales of Mercedes-Benz models for forty years, Hilton & Moss’ bodywork services are fully manufacturer-approved, while the business has custom-prepared examples of the 190 SL for clients including model David Gandy and ex-Formula 1 racing driver Max Chilton.
