Saoutchik Cabriolet
Coachwork: Saoutchik
Chassis Num: 35964
Engine Num: 72166
The Model S was the ultimate supercar of the late 1920s; wîth its powerful 6.8-liter engine it was both a race car and a fast road car, winning at the Nurburgring in 1927.

This 1928 Mercedes-Benz Model S was first delivered to Mercedes Benz, New York in 1928. It was sent to be shown at the Los Angeles Motor Show as a rolling chassis wîth the hopes to lure wealthy Hollywood socialites. From this showing some famous personalities purchased Model S cars like The Rowe Sister's, Al Jolson, who bought two one for himself and one for his wife, actress Ruby Keeler. After the Motor Show Chassis 35964 was sent to Saoutchik Carrosserie in Paris to have a Cabriolet body built for its first owner Count de la Bastille of Monaco. There are only 7 Saoutchik bodies on left hand drive 'Model S' chassis', each being slightly different from the others. The current owner, who has had the car since 2005, has taken great pride in reconditioning it to her former glory. This unique open cabriolet has wonderful wood accents around the tops of the doors and along the rear deck lid. The cars engine, gearbox, and rear axle have been recently rebuilt, wîth very little mileage on them. The exterior is freshly painted in a high gloss black and all the bright work has been plated. The interior, trimmed in fresh black leather, is stunning, and the dash has been complete restored and is not only beautiful, but fully functional.
