Expertise and an eye for detail distinguish us
Dominik Amian, CEO
Dominik Amian discovered his fascination for motorsport in 1994. At the age of six, he started karting at the Kerpen-Manheim Kart Club. From 2001 onwards, he raced against well-known Formula One greats in European and world championships. When the 2008 season came to a close, he ended his career as a kart driver at the age of 22.
With the experience gained on the race track, know-how about engines and good contacts to world-class drivers, he opened the first Amian Cars Store in Cologne in 2008, together with his father. The inventory of hand-picked limited-series supercars from the world's best brands and first-class service earned Amian Cars the title of "most exclusive showroom in all of Europe" in 2015. At the time, GT Spirit listed three other locations worldwide at this level - in Saudi Arabia, Dubai and the USA.
Since mid-2022, Dominik Amian has been investing in building up his own company, Amian Collection Cars. He chose Kerpen-Manheim - about 20 minutes outside Cologne - as the location, returning to where his career once began.
