Master Mechanics: Provost Automobile Le Mans. It’s not surprising that Le Mans is home to specialist automotive businesses, and just outside of the city sits a restoration and preservation workshop that’s among the best in the world. Provost Automobile Le Mans is a place where perfectionism is part of the status quo, but the team that carries out the work is always learning, viewing each project as an opportunity to hone a technique or add to their collective knowledge, while simultaneously showcasing what decades of experience can accomplish.
Gauthier Rousseau, Jean Baptiste Perriot, Laurent Chatal, and the rest of the team put their deep backgrounds in the industry to work on everything from pre-war grand prix machines to the early supercars of the ’70s, Ferrari 166MMs to Dinos, Facel Vegas to Aston Martins—just about every iconic model has passed through Provost, sometimes entering as boxes of parts and leaving as a concours contender. From upholstery to hand-formed bodywork, comprehensive engine rebuilds to nearly countless hours in the paint booth, the physical and human capital at Provost is equipped for the challenging work of turning back the clock on these special automobiles.
