    Very sad. Was the yellow Miura SV, that has been owned by the Lambo factory, his before?

    No, that was the gold Wolf Miura 5092, unfortunately still yellow instead of correct gold.

    Anyway RIP, a very important person in the lambo community.

    All these cars when brandnew were driven by his brother Bernd from Italy to the Düsseldorf dealership at Corneliusstrasse. Bernd himself was a very good race driver particular with the Ferrari Challenge in the late 90s and in historic motorsort. Nobody could "dance" with the very brutish Maserati 450S like him. Unfortunately Bernd passed away in 2017. At the time of Bernd`s funeral Hubert was not seen and reported to be very ill.

    Yes, he was very controversial charachter. Always very chaming owed some people a lot of money...
    On the funeral of his brother Bernd 2 years ago (Hubert was not there...) a very well known collector told me: "If he should arrive I get him busted after the ceremony!"
