Gemballa MIG-U1 – Click above for high-res image gallery

Elvis Uwe Gemballa hasn't re-entered the building, but his company will apparently soon come return. The last we heard of Mr. Gemballa, he was still listed as "disappeared" in South Africa, with his mother set up as the sole stockholder in a new shadow corporation and his wife in charge of filing bankruptcy for the former concern.

On Monday, August 23 the man in charge of the remains of the Gemballa operation, managing director Andreas Schwarz, will reportedly hold a press conference to reportedly announce that the company is somehow back in business. We have no idea what that company will look like or even what it will be called, but you can bet we'll be tuning at at 11 a.m. German time to find out.

      Alright, who drove the Enzo through the warehouse full of body kits?

      Are we expecting him to make a Tony Stark style escape from his captors and return triumphant and renewed? Or are we pretty sure he's shark food at this point?

        nah he'll come back and instead of tuning supercars he'll insist upon tuning Hybrids and small cars.

      Well, and for people with even more money and even less taste there's still mansory to give it a 'nice' paintjob!

      This car reminds me of the old transformer Jetfire (if he was a car).

      Thank Lutz! At last, people with too much money will again have a place to pay too much money, in order to make their cars much, much uglier...

      Maybe he will announce that he will be the first of the tuners to leave supercars alone and much applause will follow shortly thereafter.

      Andreas Schwarz will be the CEO of the revival of Gemballa, he's not in charge of the remains, not until the official restart is announced at least.
