Sold for $506,000 at 2017 RM Auctions : Amelia Island.
The Mercedes-Benz 300 was launched in 1952 with modern engineering and performance with Old World build quality. Built to uncompromising standards, the Mercedes-Benz was given the latest materials and technology. Along with its luxurious amenities, each example could travel at triple-digit speeds.

The Mercedes-Benz 300 S was priced nearly 50 percent higher than its counterparts. Power was from a 2,996 cubic centimeter engine fitted with triple Solex carburetors and offering 150 horsepower. With power and grace, they were, perhaps, one of the best luxury touring cars available in the 1950s.

The Roadster bodystyle had a convertible top that could be folded completely flat. Just 141 were produced.

This example is finished in Ivory over Chestnut leather. Is has a three-piece set of Dare Classics fitted luggage within the trunk and a correct jack.
