This luxury vintage sportscar is one of fewer than thirty examples fitted with the classic Rudge wheels. It’s finished in “Light Gray” over an original black leather interior and is complete with refurbished chrome trims all around, highlighting its grille, side air vents, and fenders.
The 300 SL Roadster is a convertible version of the coveted 300 SL Gullwing — a car which often fetches millions at auction. This drop-top iteration is expected to sell for at least six figures. RM Sotheby’s estimates that the car will sell for between €800,000 EUR and €1,100,000 EUR (approx. $900,000 USD — $1.2m USD), which is considerable given the fact that this car has been sitting in storage for the majority of the last 44 years. As a result, the next owner will need to get the car up-and-running once again.
Take a look at the 1958 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster in the gallery above, and check out the listing on the RM Sotheby’s website now. The auction will end on June 10.
