Behold: the 1958 Mercedes Benz 300SL – simpler and arguably classier than the legendary Gullwing, this long, low convertible roadster complete with its original 3.0l inline six engine, black leather interior and highly sought-after, date-stamped Rudge wheels has been in ‘static storage’ for 44 years. 

Bidding (the auction is in progress right now and ends at 5.30) currently stands at €680,000.

Seriously, you’d want to get in there.

    Had one of those. Broke down on M50. Rubbish. Get the 140 to Blanch now.

    Now that truly is a thing of beauty!

    No arguably about it, much classier than the Gullwing!
