In an email from 24th May, 2009, Uwe Ohlsen informed us as such:

"Dear webmaster,

for correction of the history of the Ferrari 212/Ghia EL 191 ex Peron, please complete that my company, than Uwe Ohlsen Automobile, bought this Ferrari 212 Inter from Mr.Sutter Swizerland in March 1989. I decided in 1990 to have 
this historic Ferrari ground-off restored. Fa.Rosenmaier in Margroeningen got the contract and it took work from october 1990 til Jan 1995 when it was completed (Ferrari Rosenmaier can confirm). In August 1996 I was invited with my car for a TV-show in Bounes Aires/Argentina.

After the show I left my car in the showroom of the authorized Ferrari Dealer in Bounes Aires-City til March 1997 .After it was back transported it was stored in my showroom in Dossenheim/Germany. My company went in liquidation in June 1997 and the agreement with the Bank was that this car will not be on a 'fire' auction, because of my huge private Investment.
I spent allmost DM 1.8 mil. and sadly in that time the whole historic 
car market worldwide crashed.I did not disappear and the car was
not seized, it was still under my permission to sell.In dec 1999 the 
car was auctioned in Gstaad/CH where it was sold. Also it is incorrect that someone in US made the restoration complete in 1998 .

Uwe Ohlsen"
