OEM Partnership

Spies Hecker and Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport.

Spies Hecker - the Official Team Supplier of Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport.

Our VOC-compliant Permahyd® Hi-TEC 480 is still the basecoat of choice for Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport. We create the brilliant, aluminium effect silver especially for the team. It can be seen on their brand new 2017 race car, the Mercedes-AMG F1 W08 EQ Power+. The paint is designed to cover the substrate extremely well so it reduces weight on the car to a minimum, and it’s quick to apply, fast-drying and meets the demanding needs of the racing arena.



“ Spies Hecker gave us the solution we needed –
the Permahyd Hi-TEC basecoat, experienced technicians and exceptional colour matching. Speed and efficiency are of the utmost importance in our job, on and off the track. Thanks to Spies Hecker and to fast re-sprays, we get the cars back on track as quickly as possible.

Head of Paint and Graphics at Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport
