SINCE 1999


    Conceived and established in 1999 by Gus Tsekenis, Technik 1 has earned a sterling reputation for avant-garde design, consummate craftsmanship, and superlative service on the world's finest motorcars. Technik 1's esoteric approach to design and personalization has been sought after by professionals and celebrities alike.


    Technik 1 Automotive of Manhattan started over ten years ago as a luxury and performance car customization and personalization shop, most notably as Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Porsche specialists.

    Over the years our business has evolved from esoteric custom electronics, audiophile audio and personalization services to a full-service performance tuning shop, including: repair and maintenance service, award-winning detailing services, in-house custom upholstery, factory certified 3M paint protection film services, plus full collision body work and restoration, as we have sought to meet our clients' growing need for prompt, expert automotive services right here in Manhattan. We have extensive experience on every luxury and performance motorcar including: ASTON MARTIN, BENTLEY, BMW, FERRARI, FORD GT, HUMMER, LAMBORGHINI, LAND ROVER, LOTUS, MASERATI, MERCEDES, PORSCHE, ROLLS ROYCE and VIPER.


    Since 2011, we've found a new home in NYC's West Side. Conveniently located in midtown, by the Lincoln Tunnel and West Side Highway, at 552 48th street, between 10th and 11th Avenue.

    Our spacious 3,000 square foot facility is clean, secure and well-lit. We employ an in-house wood and composites fabrication room, upholstery and interior restoration room with two sewing machines, our "Situation Room" where we envision, design and develop esoteric electronics, a proper vehicle lift for performance tuning, and a dedicated detailing station. If you have visited us in the past you know it is not uncommon to find six figures worth of automotive exotica at any one time.

    Just over the Queensboro Bridge in Long Island City is our newly designed and located state-of-the-art body and paint shop with Computerized Frame & Unibody Alignment, dedicated Computer-Precision Paint Match and Mix Room, latest Spray Booth with Down-Draft oven where we carry out complete vehicle refinishing and restorations.


    As a former Service Director of Manhattan Motorcars, owner Gus Tsekenis is passionate about performance cars. With over 25 years experience and factory certification from Bentley/Rolls Royce to Porsche and Lamborghini, his ethos has led Technik 1 to the head of the pack in Manhattan and the New York City area.

    If you have seen Technik 1's work either at the New York International Auto Show or through one of our many satisfied clients, you know that whatever you can envision, Gus and his team can create.


    "Every detail is a gesture toward perfection."
