Both sons of Klaus inherited the passion for historically significant classic cars. Right from the time they could sit upright in a car seat, they have joined their parents at the various events all over Europe. One of the earliest memories are of the common journey in the Alfa Romeo 8C Le Mans to a classic car race in Silverstone. The same car was used for the Coys Historic Festival, the summer holidays in England and the travel back to Germany.
Max therefore wanted to follow his father’s racing footsteps as early as possible. Already with 17 he was racing competitively in an Alfa Romeo GTA and the family’s Maserati 300S at the Nurburgring.
He studied economics in southern Germany and at the same time worked for one of the most renowned workshops for historic racing car restoration in Europe, where he was responsible for the project management of the race car preparation and the participation in important events. After his studies he worked for one of the leading auction houses in the classic car scene, before he finally took over the family business together with his brother Moritz in 2015.
Max is fluent in German, English and French.
