An exercise in elegance.
We are extremely excited to offer a 1937 Mercedes-Benz 540 K Special Roadster, the apex of pre-war luxury automobiles in Arizona this year. Chassis no. 130894 is one of the earliest made and one of very few built in the most desirable configuration of high-doors, long-tail, and factory left-hand drive. An original U.S.-delivery car with known history from new, this Special Roadster was the centerpiece in some of the world’s most prominent garages before making its way to its current owner.
Presented in restored condition and with only 10,277 miles on its odometer, this incredible 540K is being offered following 26 years in single ownership. Eligible for the world’s most prestigious events, this remarkable automobile is among the most valuable automobiles on offer during this year’s Arizona auctions, and indeed, ever presented in Arizona auction week history.
