Special Roadster
The Mercedes-Benz 500K was the elegant yet sporty, top-of-the-line model from the Mercedes-Benz range in the 1930s. When the 500K was first presented in 1934, it achieved much praise for its handling and performance. Thanks to its powerful Roots supercharger and innovative chassis design and suspension, the 500K was unbeatable on the road and set the benchmark in both safe handling and comfort. Including the 540K, a total of 29 Special Roadsters were built, which equates to about 4 percent of the entire 500/540K production, making it one of the most rare and exclusive Mercedes-Benzes designs of all time.
