Restomods and Electric Classic Car PR

Influence Associates is the world’s leading Restomod and Electric Classic Car PR agency

Influence has built a strong reputation as the leading Restomod PR agency having worked for Singer, arguably the most famous and desired restomod brand in the world. We are also the leading electric classic car PR agency, having been in the vanguard of communicating these conversions for many years and working for the key companies and technology providers in this sector.

Leaders in Restomod PR

We are passionate about restomods at Influence. The specialist companies and brands that meticulously restore original collector cars then reimagine, recreate, refine and enhance them to make them unique works of driving art. Exquisite to look at, touch, and drive, and ultra-desirable.

We worked for Rob Dickenson at Singer for many years and helped him to globalise and build the Singer brand. While doing so we learnt so much from his obsessive attention to detail in everything, and the sense of style and occasion with which Singer communicates its brand and values.

Since then we have gone on to work for and launch many other leading restomod companies and products, as well as supporting several very high-profile continuation series from leading manufacturers and specialist brands.

At the vanguard of electric classic cars

Influence has also developed a reputation as the leading electric classic car PR agency. This was a natural area for our agency to move into combining our long expertise as the leading classic car PR agency and as the world’s first and leading EV PR agency and e-mobility agency – Influence emobility.

We have advised and supported many companies converting classic cars in different areas of the market, and the companies creating the technology and powertrain conversion sets, helping them to precisely define and build their brand positions and points of differentiation. With our absolute passion for classic cars, we have always championed the reversibility of the EV conversation process, aided by our deep knowledge of electrification, OEM-level safety standards, and type-approval.

This industry-leading expertise, knowledge and enthusiasm empowers a forensic level of research to find the unique detail that will make a story newsworthy, and then through our powerful relationships we will “place” these stories in the prime editorial position in not just the car and collector media but – equally importantly – in the global news, lifestyle, financial, business, and investment media. Our reputation as the specialist restomod and electric classic car PR agency is unparalleled.

We know that brand authenticity and integrity, together with the product credentials, are key. As is market sentiment, allure, mystique and scarcity.  PR is the key to achieving this. A brand’s own social media channels and content are clearly very important, and we advise many clients on how to optimise this. The power of third-party endorsement from global opinion formers is also absolutely essential to creating authentic brand aspiration, credibility, and the all-important aura which appeal to the true car collectors and connoisseurs. Influence are experts at creating this. No other PR agency is as experienced or connected.

Who we work with

Restomods and Electric Classics Q&A

Why is working with a specialist Restomod PR agency better than a generalist PR agency?

Fundamentally, it comes down to expertise, understanding, sector knowledge and having the closest relationships with the global opinion leaders that matter to meet the communication needs to run restomod PR campaigns. We have worked in the automotive sector all our lives and brought that expertise to bear when we launched Influence Associates a decade and a half ago. Influence is regarded as the world’s leading restomod and electric classic car PR Agency, and as such, has exceptional operational experience supporting clients in the sectors. We focus this expertise to benefit our clients and give them unparalleled access to the global opinion formers they need to project their brand and business to amplify sales. A generalist, tech or automotive PR agency, or less-experienced automotive PR agency just can’t provide this level of sector knowledge. We believe it's the difference between great and good.

What does a Restomod PR agency do?

A specialist agency focussing on restomod and electric classic car PR can help companies in many ways. At Influence, we have a proven model that helps clients refine and focus their messaging to really cut through and provide a key point of difference. Having laser-focussed messaging is the first step. We then take your message to key global influencers in the automotive space, such as influential journalists and opinion formers, who in turn amplify that message through respected channels to land and resonate with highly discerning and often difficult to reach restomod and electric classic car customers. Those channels can be traditional media (print and broadcast), your own channels or the specific targeting of appropriate audiences through social media such as LinkedIn. Powerful storytelling amongst critical audiences is vital to business success.
