Rare Birds opens the ring for the most legendary cars of the 80s and 90s

Several road sports cars of the 80s and 90s represent the myth of an unforgettable epoch. No wonder that the stylish cars are celebrating a comeback with a group of growing fans. How does it find an increasing number of fans? Quite simple: the former Auto-Stars have the power and are the design-conscious epitome of a legendary car era.

From the passion of a car enthusiast to Rare Birds

Even Christian Männer is enthusiastic about the rare road cars of the early 80s to late 90s and has made his passion into a profession with Rare Birds GmbH & Co. The car connoisseur has rare cars already on the track for several years. The stakes are high. Only the special one is chosen which impresses with a top performance as regards mileage, condition and history. Thus the road cars of strong character, which are prepared at Rare Birds for their comeback, have one thing in common: they have an extraordinary original condition and a low mileage. To detect these motorised gems, Christian Männer did not shy away from any kilometre.

Racing – and rally cars with full throttle history

Racing and rally cars promise goose bumps. They are prepared at Rare Birds for their next owner. The ambitious organisation launches only those cars that participated in important competitions. The race driver plays an equally important role as an exciting and understandable history in the choice.

Road free for your cult object
