The newest members of the European Automotive Hall of Fame share a common trait: guts.
Werner Breitschwerdt pushed Mercedes into new segments. Giovanni Michelotti pioneered the field of freelance design. Hub van Doorne launched an ahead-of-its-time transmission. Ferruccio Lamborghini created his own company to take on Ferrari.
The European Automotive Hall of Fame, which is sponsored by Automotive News Europe, will induct the four men on March 3 in Geneva.
