Over thirty cars are to be offered from the key museum collection. Among them, there is a 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing and a 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300 SC Coupe.
The organizers expect to fetch for the 300 SL Gullwing an amount of money between one million and 1,3 million dollars, at the event organized in Chichester, Goodwood. The automobile looking to be in an impeccable condition has its body painted in silver and its interior wrapped in red leather and red velvet, with aluminum detailing on the dashboard and gearshift.
The gorgeous classic with an aluminum-made body comes accompanied by the original documents, but also by a suitcase in red leather, fastened with leather straps, to compensate for the limited space of its coupe shape.
This is the $800,000 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing that doesn’t even work
Meanwhile, the 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300 SC Coupe is evaluated between $520,000 and $650,000. Considering its looks and reputation it might exceed expectations though. The vehicle in red with a warm beige interior seems to be in perfect condition, following a recent restoration procedure.
