A very unfortunate news reached us last week, Marcel de Lange passed away on October 30. 2006.
This Dutch based Lamborghini enthusiast contributed massively to the Raging Bull community over the years, he attended the most important Lamborghini events worldwide and was often seen at the factory, were he became close friends to the most important people at Sant'Agata.
His knowledge and collection of photographs on Lamborghini are probably unsurpassed, he could easily be called a walking Lamborghini encyclopedia, registering chassis numbers of most of the cars he photographed during his travels, and visits to the most important automotive factories in Europe.
His passing at such a young age came as a massive shock to all Lamborghini enthusiasts who knew him, I've personally met Marcel several times, both during events and at the factory, always ready to share his knowledge on these amazing cars, I don't think there was a single Lamborghini question he couldn't answer.
I am confident to say that this is an important loss to all Lamborghini enthusiast, but I'm also sure that his massive wealth of knowledge and devotion to the Lamborghini make will always be remembered.
