1. When did you sit in a classic car for the first time?
"Of course, it is a little bit of a challenge to make a one hundred percent statement here. But probably I was approximately two months old, when I sat in a classic car for the very first time. The automobile has always been a prominent topic in my family."

2. What is your favorite classic car-memory?

"One of my favorite classic car-memories is definitely the Concours d’Elégance in Pebble Beach. In 2014, we took part in this event for the first time and that with an absolutely unique piece. From Stuttgart to the most beautiful coasts of California - Our team had the great chance to accompany the Mercedes 630k Murphy, one of the heartpieces of this event. The vehicle alone was a real particularity. But I also keep in great memory the drive to the presentation area in the very morning during the amazing sunrise. A sight, I will never forget."
