This great classic Mercedes is an exceptional collectable.
An exquisite 1962 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster, a paragon of automotive elegance and engineering, is set to captivate collectors at The Amelia Auction 2024. This classic roadster, with an estimated value between $1,500,000 and $1,700,000, represents a pinnacle of automotive craftsmanship, offering a unique blend of historical significance and impeccable style.
This particular 300 SL Roadster is distinguished as one of the approximately 270 models that were factory-equipped with advanced Dunlop disc brakes, a feature that places it among the most desirable variants. Its authenticity is further cemented by the retention of its matching-numbers chassis, engine, transmission, and body, as well as its original 3.89:1 rear axle – a true testament to its well-preserved originality.
The roadster proudly showcases its as-delivered color scheme of pristine White exterior over luxurious Black leather upholstery, complemented by a sleek Black soft top. This timeless color combination accentuates the roadster's graceful lines and classic styling, making it a standout piece of automotive art.
The car's allure is enhanced by a high-quality restoration completed in the early 2010s. During this meticulous process, it received tasteful upgrades, including the addition of desirable European-market headlights and original Karl Baisch fitted luggage, enhancing its functionality and appeal without compromising its original charm.
Previously cherished by a single California-based collector for over 25 years, this 300 SL Roadster has been lovingly maintained, ensuring its condition remains exceptional. Its status as one of the most collectible and iconic sports cars ever produced is undisputed, making it a coveted addition to any discerning collector's portfolio.
Accompanied by a digital copy of its factory data card, this 1962 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster is not just a vehicle; it's a piece of automotive history, embodying the elegance, innovation, and craftsmanship of its era. As it graces the auction block, it offers a rare opportunity to own a piece of Mercedes-Benz's illustrious legacy.
