To be auctioned on October 26th, and valued at between £360,000-£400,000, it’s rare to see a classic 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster so subtly gorgeous as this to hit the open market. In all-black with stunning red upholstery, the roadster packs a 250 bhp, 2,996 cc six-cylinder engine under the hood, four-speed all-synchromesh manual gearbox and independent front suspension with twin wishbones, so it’ll certainly still go a fair speed too.
