Company introductionServicesOur teamVideaPartners


A fine classic automobile represents the ultimate marriage of art and machinery. Serious collectors may rely on recognized experts to assist them in either selling and acquiring vehicles of true value, authenticity and distinction.

Ten years ago, Ivo Smutný as the founder of the AVC together with the team of experienced colleagues launched a unique concept of presenting classic cars and approached to get closer to achieve a goal by offering the professional and special services to the clients.

In at that time newly opened premises near Prague at area of nearly 1,000 m2 disposed of a showroom, technical support for the maintenance and a stylish lounge with well-stocked library full of technical literature, dedicated to automotive brands.

Today, after 6 years of sustained growth, we are excited for our next chapter. The current showroom will be moved from the original location to nearby vintage farm, where the old buildings are currently being carefully restored, offering as much as three times more floor area, then it is available now.

It is subtly converted into a unique “airship style” showroom, spacious workshop and car storage and we cannot wait to welcome you there soon.


“We love what we do and the company team works on various projects, goals and missions to ensure a sustained growth.”

We believe you all like to see these magnificent cars in motion as we do. That’s the reason for our favourite activity – making movies. Together with our young and talented film director, we’re trying to raise the bar and make the movies always better. Choosing the right location with less traffic is a discerning job, it’s not an easy task, but here in wonderful countryside of Czech Republic is a pleasure!
