In our manufactory we make individual dreams of Wenckstern Hot Rods come true.
According to the motto #everythingispossible, we build your unique WENCKSTERN© Hot Rod by hand according to your specifications. Whether as Roadster or PICKUP, whether for the private use or as advertising medium for your enterprise. In any case, the result will be your individual unique piece. At www.wenckstern.com you’ll find some initial inspirations of what’s possible. We are curious, which ideas you have.
Since 2008 we have been making car dreams come true at Wenckstern Manufaktur.
By hand. With heart. In Norderstedt. Developed from a vision.
Maik (Wenckstern), managing director of Wenckstern GmbH, had the idea together with his brother while barbecuing and a glass of beer (too much). Basically with the ulterior motive of developing something that does not yet exist on the streets – without commercial ulterior motives. That’s how they came up with the Hot Rods.
The incentive for this was already in the planning phase the private environment, which either said, you will never get so relaxed or “If you get this thing on the street, I want one like that.
After two years and in close cooperation with TÜV Nord, the first vehicle was on the road in 2010.
Since then, over 400 vehicles have left the factory, both for the concept of guided tours throughout Europe, but also in a large number as individual unique pieces for equally positive crazy people with petrol in their blood.
Both in the manufactory itself and at all locations of the Hot Rod Fun network.
