When Elias Gaganelis set up a car model factory in Katerini 10 years ago most people thought he was crazy. Not to be deterred, however, he created Replicar Hellas (RCH), created in 2007, with replicas of models such as Porsche, the 356 Speedster and 550 Spyder.
The quality of his designs however were astounding and soon noted a great demand abroad as well as on the domestic market. Hitches in Greek legislation however led to his products receiving licensing in 2011.
Replicar Hellas already has partners in Italy, the United Kingdom and Austria. In 2015, an estimated 35-40 units of Replicar Hellas will make their way around Europe.
