COACHBUILD.com is the leading encyclopedia and forum dedicated to unique cars, the art of automotive design and Special Coachbuilding. We highlight the numerous designers and coachbuilding companies that created so many wonderful pieces of automotive artwork throughout the decades.

Since 2008 we have built up a unique position in the specialized automotive field. The extensive COACHBUILD.com resources have become an authorative benchmark on the web, attracting over 1,5 million unique visitors per year and over 70.000 pageviews per day. The site found its way to a vast audience of automotive enthusiasts, including connoisseurs, owners, buyers, collectors, and many who have in any way been involved in the creation or restoration process. 

All our visitors share the same passion: historic and unique automobiles and their designers.

Through our continuing editorial efforts we aim at offering a complete as possible Special Coachbuilding ENCYCLOPEDIA (13.500 images and counting), serving as an open platform and information source for everyone interested. The enthusiastic reader contributions in our Special Coachbuild FORUM (9.700 topics, 60.000 posts, 60.000 images) indicate that the topic of Special Coachbuilding is very much alive.

We recently introduced our new Coachbuild & Collectibles Marketplace, offering you a unique specialised market to find or sell coachbuilt cars, collectibles, limited series & one-offs.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
