The Ultimate Mercedes-Benz Collection Goes Under the Hammer

Having the passion and most of all the money to accumulate no less than 74 vintage cars in your garage is one thing, but having the three-pointed star shine on each and every one of them is really on a whole new level.

Selling them all at once in an auction is almost even more mind-blowing and certainly one for the history books.

The event will be hosted by RM Auctions on the 8th and 9th of September, while the cars are expected to fetch up to 20 million pounds together.

“A single-owner collection of 74 cars is rare enough at auction, but this ultimate collection of Mercedes-Benz automobiles contains some beautiful examples of very important cars alongside some wonderful cars which are desirable, interesting, and rare in equal measure. With the new early September dates, our London sale is certainly an event not to be missed this summer.“ said Max Girardo, Managing Director of RM Auctions, Europe.

Among the 74 models there is also a replica of the Benz Patent Motorcar, a couple of 300 SLs in both coupe and roadster form and rather nice assortment of 1930's Mercedes', culminating with two beautiful supercharged 540Ks, once of which is expected to be sold for up to two and a half million pounds.
