Roadster
Coachwork: Fleetwood
In 1926, the Mercedes-Benz Model K became the world's fastest touring car with a top speed of nearly 100 mph. The letter K stood for 'Kurz,' or short, as it used a shortened chassis based on the Mercedes-Benz 24/100/140 hp. The 6-cylinder engine was derived from the 630K, with a larger supercharger similar to the one fitted to the later S models. The body for this unique Model K was ordered by William Sloan of Rochester, New York, after seeing the Isotta Fraschini Roadster built by Fleetwood for Rudolph Valentino at the 1926 New York Auto Salon. Sloan kept the car in his garage alongside two other supercharged Mercedes. In the late 1940s it was acquired by Paul Brewer Conaway of Chillicothe, Ohio, and it stayed with his family until the late 1980s. After two more collectors, its current owner bought the car in 2018. The 2019 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance was the car's first showing since a recent restoration.
