Born in Nuremberg in 1932, Fritz Neuser’s automotive career began with two cylinders, so to speak, at the end of the 1950s, when the young Fritz Neuser immediately became Germany’s best “Goggomobil” salesman. His rise continued, and he was able to open his own car dealership at Nuremberg’s Maxtor in the early 1960s.
From then on, as an authorized dealer for Alfa Romeo, Fritz Neuser was not only a dedicated and successful salesman, but also just as successful in automobile racing, winning over 52 victories on the Abarth, Porsche and Alfa Romeo marques between 1965 and 1969. “Auto Neuser” became a household name for automobile enthusiasts far beyond the borders of Franconia and Germany, grew accordingly and soon moved to Nuremberg’s Röthensteig, where the black stallion of Maranello also found a home: Fritz Neuser became an official Ferrari dealer and soon advanced to become one of the top-selling Ferrari dealers in Germany. He looked after the cars of celebrities, who over the years became friends from customers, such as Luciano Pavarotti and Michael Schumacher.
