Death of a Dynasty is Damon Dash's slapstick parody of the industry that made him rich. Dash is the CEO of Roc-a-Fella records, home to hip-hop's biggest seller: Jay Z. The film is a fictionalized account of a beef between Dash and Z over the party chick Picasso, played by the sometimes model, sometimes actress, always disconcertingly teenage ...

Kroymans was founded in Amsterdam in 1902 by the great-grandfather of current chairman Frits Kroymans. He started as a dealer for Adler, a German car, then picked up Spyker, a Dutch car. In the 1930s, the business moved to Hilversum, and by the 1950s and ’60s it offered the entire line of BMC products, including Rover, MG, Austin, and Morris. So far, so good. In the early 1970s, current chairman Frits Kroymans took control and raised the profile by becoming the Ferrari distributor for Holland. In the late 1980s and early ’90s, he began a very ambitious expansion program, distributing or selling Jaguar, Opel, Ford, and other makes. And in 2000, the Kroymans Group took over A.R.M.-Stokvis, which included Kia and Saab. At the height of the Kroymans Corporation’s fortunes in 2007–08, the group had 150 companies and 3,900 employees.
The Kroymans expansion began to go awry in 2003, when it became the Cadillac and Corvette distributor for Europe, in charge of all EU members as well as Switzerland and Norway. With exclusive importation agreements, Kroymans began building high-profile, “flagship” mult-car showrooms in Berlin, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Nuremberg, Stuttgart, and other major German cities, all with a vision of selling 25,000 new Cadillacs a year, plus Hummers, Saabs, and other makes. But Cadillac sales never exceeded 5,000 cars a year. To boost Cadillac sales in Europe, Saab and Cadillac collaborated on the Cadillac BLS model, a rebadged and redesigned version of the Saab 9-3 built by Saab in Trollhättan, Sweden. No one was fooled, and the lack of a diesel engine option was a major handicap in the EU markets. Sales began in March 2006, with a station wagon joining the line for 2007. The BLS was also introduced to the Arab, Mexican, South African, and South Korean markets in 2007. Unfortunately, Saab-Cadill...
However, during the boom years, as Frits Kroymans expanded his flagship Ferrari dealership, he filled his basement with over two dozen Ferraris. The coachbuilt and competition era of the 1950s was represented by 212 Cabriolet s/n 0227EL, 375 America s/n 0327AL, and 250 Boano s/n 0447GT. From the 1960s Ferraris, Kroymans owned 250 SWB s/n 2365, 250 TR Replica s/n 2059GT, 250 PF Cab s/n 3397GT, 275 GTB/4 s/n 10311, and more. His 1970s cars included 365 GTS s/n 12473, 365 GTB/4 s/n 12919, 365 GTB/4 Spyder Conversion s/n 13477, and 365 GT4/BB s/n 18431. The Fiat era was represented by 328 s/n 77190 and Testarossa s/n 81636, while modern cars include a 456 GT, an F50; a 550 Barchetta, an Enzo, and a 2002 Formula One car, s/n 222. In American historic racing circles, Frits Kroymans is best known for the spectacular crash of his 1993 Ferrari F399 Formula One car at the Saturday session of the Monterey Historic races in 2004. He spun on a warm-up lap, crossed the track and hit the inside ti...
In a lesson about why you shouldn’t mingle personal and business finances, Frits Kroymans brought his Ferrari collection into one of his companies under a lease agreement, which meant that it too went into receivership in March. So why hasn’t the collection shown up at auction? At press time, we learned that the entire collection was bought by a representative of an American collector. Insiders say the receiver was looking for €20m (about $30m), while the bidding had gone well over €15m (about $23.5m). Surely we will see some of the cars coming to market in the near future. Bottom line: A billion-dollar empire is no more and 3,900 people are unemployed. Kroymans is a nice guy, but he made the wrong moves at the wrong time with the wrong product—and a lot of people paid the price.
