It’s a sad day for the car tuning world, Uwe Gemballa was found dead in South Africa earlier today, shot in the head execution style. No one really knows the whole story, but details are showing an offshore money-laundering scheme between Gemballa and fugitive Czech billionaire Radovan Krejcir. His body was dumped, hands behind his back in Atterdgeville, west of Pretoria. This news comes from jalopnik, and is just months after the high-profile murder of strip-club owner Lolly Jackson by underworld character “Louka”, alias George Smith. In the absence of Uwe Gemballa, Andreas Schwarz took over the Gemballa tuning company that was nearing bankruptcy, however I doubt they will ever put out a product like the Ferrari Enzo or the Porsche Mirage GT without Uwe Gemballa. RIP my man.
