1932 Mercedes-Benz 370 S Mannheim Sport Carbriolet

Estimate €400,000 – 550,000

The Mercedes-Benz 370 S Mannheim was only in production for two years from February 1931 to February 1933. A total of 195 chassis were manufactured, 64 of them in 1932. The trim and tasteful lines of the 370S Sport Cabriolet are as appealing today as they were in the early 1930’s. The model is rarely offered, and this is an exciting opportunity to acquire a very special and elegant pre-war Mercedes-Benz cabriolet that presents beautifully in every way.

1949 Veritas BMW Rennsport

Estimate €450,000 – 550,000

As with many 1950s sports racing cars—and particularly those powered by the wonderfully tractable BMW engine—chassis no. 85123 remains an extremely versatile and usable car, equally at home on either road or track. It remains a rare, charismatic and highly significant example of early post-war German engineering.

1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 Sc Coupe

Estimate €450,000 – 550,000

A car that epitomized the high-quality engineering and no-compromise construction that the marque was so justly famous for, manufacture began in July 1952 and ended in August 1955. Cars were special-ordered and custom-built in coupe, roadster and convertible body styles, all powered by a street-tuned three-carburetor version of the 300 SL sports car engine. Only 113 hand-built 300 S left the factory in 1952, rising to 353 in 1953 as the model found favor with celebrities and jet-setters.
