The story of Car Collection

The company was founded in 1995 by Franz Wittner, based on his father’s historic car collection. Under the name Car Collection Wittner, a renowned classic car trading and repair business developed at the Steyr location in Upper Austria.

In 2019, the Austrian investment company West Consulting GmbH took over shares and supported the further development of the company. In accordance with the intentions of the founder and the two investors, West Consulting GmbH together with Adanarro GmbH now hold 100% of the company shares.

Parallel to the entry of the two investors, the existing business model was also strategically further developed. As planned, this led to the takeover of the previous “Hödlmayr Classic Car Center” in Schwertberg, Upper Austria, in June 2021. Both companies had one vision in common: to establish a leading European “Center of Excellence” for new and used sports cars, classic & vintage vehicles, service, bodywork & paintwork, restoration, repair, logistics and collection management.

At the same time, with the takeover of the official representation of Morgan Motor Company for Austria and Central East Europe, the important step into brand distribution was also taken. This will be followed by further new accents – in line with the strategic orientation of Car Collection GmbH.

The operational management of Car Collection GmbH is in the hands of authorized signatory Ing. Augustin J. Eder, who as a former motor sportsman, petrol head and trained technician has a deep knowledge of the entire automotive history and is therefore the competent contact person on site.

The entire Car Collection team looks forward to your visit in Schwertberg and your contact, whether online or onland.
