This 1934 Mercedes-Benz 380K Sport Roadster is one of only seven built. There were only seven roadsters built between 1933 and 1934 wîth this stunning example being one of the last produced. Launched in 1933, the sporty Mercedes-Benz 380K was intended to bridge the gap between the six-cylinder engine 290 model and the massive 770 'Grosser' model. It was the first car of its type wîth fully independent suspension; wishbones at the front and swing axles at the rear. The eight cylinder engine was directly derived from the 290's and wîth the familiar engageable supercharger.
