Behold: the 1957 Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing – the enduring masterpiece that resulted when Mercedes Benz took the chassis and 3.0l inline six engine from a W194 race car, added a weepingly beautiful shell and gave the world the ultimate grand tourer.

This fine example, originally sold in the US, has been completely disassembled, rebuilt and restored over 10 months by vintage Merc restoration specialists, Hjeltness.

Yours (with 55 pages of documentation and two photo albums detailing same restoration) for around €850,000.

Arguably best in silver (of which this beauty is the ultimate expression) but also nice in Paul Newman blue or liquid black.
