Premium Coach Builders

“Our aim was to develop a classic car that allows our drivers to have a gin tonic in their hands at the end of a rally instead of a wrench.” – Patrick Syen

Belrose Classics is what happens when a former racecar-driver and an entrepreneur join forces around a mutual passion for classic cars. With this combined knowledge, we take on the challenge of redesigning a pre-war car to meet the standards of comfort we have today, without losing the essence of the driving experience that they are known for.

Belrose Classics are a Belgian coach building company inspired by pre- & post war legendary icons of car design. “When you spend a day in a pre-war, you come to realise the true meaning of manual driving.” – Franz Lamot

The Peking to Paris rally originally started as a race between the two cities in 1907. The ideology behind the race came from the saying: ‘as long as a man has a car, he can do anything and go anywhere’.

Season's greetings

We’d like to end the first of our monthly newsletters by wishing you all the best for the upcoming Festive season. 

Passion doesn’t evaporate nor fade. In contrary, we’ll put our focus on creating moments to remember ! 

2020 was a challenging year for all of us but our will to go on exceeds the circumstances. We’re carefully looking forward to a prosperous 2021 with room for all of us to thrive.

With our love and our cars, our bubble and our friends, 2021 will be our ‘renaissance’. We’re ready for a year full of beautiful memories to be made and passion to be shared.

As for now, we set up a warm initiative to stay connected during the Holidays together with our non-profit organisation For a Better Life. On December 26 at 10.30 am, we would like to offer you a digital surprise. Provide yourself and your bubble with a nice coffee or – even better – an early aperitif, a lazy chair and everything else that goes with relaxing on Boxing Day. Don’t forget your laptop because right before 10.30 am we’ll email you the hyperlink to our moment together. Exciting, right? 

Wishing you all the best during this festive season.
