What more do we need to say, just look at this amazing bodywork, The attention to detail and those lines, German Quality!

The car was constructed in 1935 as a Mercedes 290 Sedan which was used as a limousine / demonstration car for the Daimler-Benz sales office in Berlin, Germany. The Mercedes served a very large role in the sales in Köningsberg for Daimler-Benz and was used in several bespoke events. Not much later, the car was sold to ‘Royal Highness Prince Albrecht of Bavaria’ and he drove the car to his palace in Leuchtenberg in Munich where it unfortunately also stayed during the war.

A couple of years ago, the car was restored by very high standards with a very fine eye for detail. Sadly, the heavy steel sedan body was so badly damaged by the war that it was beyond repair. The owner chose for this lightweight aluminium flamboyant Spezial Roadster body instead. With those elegant sweeping lines, not a bad choice.

The complete car was restored to the last nut and bolt a couple of years ago (so literally the car is in Concours condition from top to bottom) and hasn’t driven much since. Still matching numbers and stated as 1935 Mercedes 290B Spezial roadster on the German documents.

The meaning of Magnificence!
