Restoration projects

Over its first century, Ricardo  gained a rich and diverse heritage, having worked on many pioneering and noteworthy projects. We want to preserve our legacy and that of the company’s founder, drawing attention to the ingenuity and innovation of the past, so that it may inspire a whole new generation of engineers. As part of this, we are restoring four engines and transmissions that were key technological developments that contributed to our heritage.
