A recent auction saw Gooding & Company collect over £8 million from a small collection of vintage high-value cars in the UK. One of the units featured in the European Sporting & Historic Collection sale held in London was a 1963 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster alongside Aston Martin, Ferrari, Bentley, and Rolls-Royce vehicles. The vintage Mercedes car fetched £935,000 ($1,284,710) in the online bidding from January 28 to February 5, 2021.

Ride Like a Dictator in This $2.6M 1975 Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman

The Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman is a very rare car as only 304 samples of it were ever made and sold to wealthy personalities worldwide. Considering that the model is already around half-a-century old, only a few of these have remained intact. One of them happens to be on sale at the Auto Leitner in The Netherlands for $2.6 million. The unit seems to be in excellent condition, but it appears to have undergone a resto-mod not so long ago because its interior looks up to date with some modern Maybach elements. The add-ons include a couple of touchscreen displays, additional switches, electric and heated seats, refrigerator, mini-bar, dimmable panoramic roof,… Continue Reading »

The 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL by AMG is Beautiful but Blasphemous

The 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing Coupe is such a rarity. Only 1,400 units of the car came out of the assembly line more than half a century ago, and only a few of them survived the test of time. So for true classic car enthusiasts, it is something that is better left untouched. Back in 1997, when AMG was not yet acquired by the former DaimlerChrysler, 11 units of the 300 SL went under its knife for resto-mod. The restoration part for the Gullwings should be fine, but modifying and fitting them with more modern components is utterly blasphemous. There would have been a public outcry over them from… Continue Reading »

A 1970 Mercedes-Benz W111 Coupe received some restoration works and engine upgrades from Mechatronik. With its power boost, the car now has an output of 360 hp. According to Auto Zeitung, Mechatronik is based in Pleidelsheim, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. The company specializes in vintage cars and is known for its works with classic Mercedes vehicles. One of its projects involved a 70s W111 Coupe, which was restored to almost its original look when it rolled out from the production plant. Mechatronik was down to the detail on this one, but its mechanics have taken out its 3.5-liter V8 engine to replace it with a 5.5-liter V8 sourced from an SLK55 AMG. During… Continue Reading »

Keep Calm and Drive Vintage Cars

  Nostalgia. Ah, that feeling we get when we watch a very old episode of some cartoon that defined our childhood. It is also that familiar feeling that captures us the moment we re-enter a place where our fondest memories are planted. Whatever defines your own personal feeling of nostalgia, you can always bet on possessing a certain feeling of satisfaction that makes you long for a time in the distant past. At any rate, anyone can wax nostalgic, and that’s because as humans, we often find ourselves  at the behest of our emotions. With that said, most vehicle owners often get the same feeling whenever they see vintage cars,… Continue Reading »

Mercedes-Benz Pays Homage to the E-Class

Mercedes-Benz recently paraded some of its classic and existing cars to pay tribute to the rich and colorful history of the E-Class. The event was held at the Sindelfingen plant of Mercedes in Germany where the E-Class models are produced. The “Mercedes-Benz E-Class” range name only officially surfaced in 1993. The E-Class badge was used in the facelifted version of the W124. However, the DNA of the car goes way back to 1953. In that era existed the Mercedes-Benz (W120) Ponton 180. It was a midsize sedan carrying a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. The car is characterized by its exotic look and a bit rounded frame as most of the ponton cars… Continue Reading »
