Born and raised in Germany, Mr. Hamann developed his passion for cars in a very early stage. He has been racing cars since the early 80s and still regularly attends races and touring events around the globe.

Mr. Hamann’s business experience began in Germany as the youngest Rolls-Royce salesman in Europe at the age of 19, while already focusing on Italian, British, and German classic sports and race cars.

In the mid 80s, Mr. Hamann served as General Manager of the Autofarm in Germany but moved eventually to the United States. He ran the Florida-based company Autoputer as General Manager and took it to a leading market position.

In the late 80s, he co-founded the international classic-car dealership Mille Miglia Sports and Racecars together with a prominent Swedish collector.
