One 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300SL is on sale on eBay


German automaker Mercedes-Benz has developed a pre-production 300SL model back in 1954. Now, the exquisite car is on sale on eBay for the incredible price of $850.000. With this amount of money you can get almost any new car, but not as special as this one. The model is still in great shape even if it has been driven for 73.771 miles. Both inside and out there are traces of corrosion, but it still looks impeccable. Different rumors say this model is the same one the Germans showed back in 1955 at the Detroit Motor Show. Under the hood, the car has a very rare NSL engine that is very difficult to find in a SL. The carmaker only built 50 units of the 300SL and the best part of it is that they were all built by hand. The model features different special elements like a concave tri-star on the grille, lower gear ratios for a quicker acceleration and gooseneck shift lever. It is important to know that the 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300SL has been in storage for the last thirty years and the engine was completely renewed 7.000 miles ago. At the beginning of the 1980s, the car was repainted from white to black. We are sure the model would have looked a lot better in white. The current owner of the pre-production 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing hopes to obtain over $1 million at the RM Auctions. Unfortunately, until now, no bid has been placed on the rare and unique 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300SL. This is all the information available on the matter so far.
