Vintage Mercedes-Benz Vehicles in Auction at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

One of the parts of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is the auction. And even though this doesn't seem to be the highlight of the event, it is still much awaited because of the Mercedes-Benz vehicles that will be sold with the gavel.

The most awaited car on the auction is the 1935 Mercedes-Benz 500K Roadster which is expected to be taken at the price of up to $5,000,000. But that does not stop with this beautiful car, as there more models that will surely grab the attention of the bidders. The cars that will be sold are 1924 Sports Phaeton, 1936 540 Special Coupe, 1934 Cabriolet, and the 2006 SLR McLaren Coupe, among others.

The highlight of the auction, 1935 Mercedes-Benz 500K Roadster, is a red piece of automotive history. A top-down vehicle with great leather interiors and beautiful exterior finish. The RM Auction brochure describes it as, “Magnificently designed, fastidiously constructed and assiduously maintained by a succession of owners, most recently by the Lyon family in their wonderful collection with fulltime professional maintenance and constant attention to any need, 500 K Roadster 105380’s effect, whether on the road or in a concourse, is arresting. It presents a rare opportunity for other collectors to experience its allure and satisfaction.”
