Über Forstner Automobile GmbH
The Forstner Group has been involved in automobiles since 1923. It was founded by enthusiasts for enthusiasts. Since the early days of childhood, the foreign currencies banker and prospective lawyer Robert L. Forstner had a place for automobiles in his heart. Already in 1980 he founded the Forstner Automobile company that - over the years - became a synonym for American cars way beyond the borders of Stuttgart. Soon it became an official service point for US army members in Germany. After becoming one of the first Chrysler/Jeep-dealers, his company grew to one of the largest manufacturers’ representatives in Germany. It were always special cars like the Prowler, the Ram Pick-Up and the Viper that interested him the most. Since its emergence, the Viper played a key role. Robert L. Forstner was so much fascinated by that car that he founded the German Viper Club. After the Daimler-Chrysler-fusion, the representation was sold to the concern in November 2000. Excalibur Deutschland - originally the official importer for Excalibur cars from the USA - was founded as a GmbH (Ltd.) in 1990. Later, the love for Lamborghini grew out of passion. By coincidence, Forstner had an encounter with a yellow Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary in 1992. That was the beginning of a great love affair. A passion for the car, several visits of the Italian manufacturer Automobili Lamborghini SpA (at that time part of the Chrysler concern) and conversations with personalities like Robert A. Lutz, Mr. Adams and Mr. Kimberley were the starting signal for a new era in 1993. The official marriage between Lamborghini and Excalibur Deutschland was set. Confident of the products it still took some years to enter the position that Excalibur fills today. Lamborghini became more and more part of our lives. In 1998, even a distribution all over Europe was debated. Influenced by the motor sports (Lamborghini SVR-Racing within the scope of the Philippe Charriol Super Sport Trophy) as well as the very positive effects of Audi being the new owner of Lamborghini, Excalibur will enthusiastically continue to keep the Lamborghini-banner high. Every model that Lamborghini ever built is a myth and every Lamborghini is a part of history on its own. In 2003, the Bentley Stuttgart franchise was opened and in 2006 Pagani chose the Forstner Group as its importer for Germany. KTM announced their new Product "the X Bow" and once again the Forstner Group was chosen as a pioneer. In 2009, Excalibur Park Lane was founded. The showroom on the legendary Park Lane was opened and brands such as Brabus, Pagani, Ruf, Spyker were soon at home. Park Lane has always had a thriving Classic Car division, selling the most exclusive classics. In Stuttgart, the Lamborghini Museum was opened and soon the company was well known for its award winning restorations of Lamborghini products. The Lamborghini Service Center is specialised in Lamborghini, new and old.
