Seventy-six years after leaving the factory, one of the world’s most extraordinary Mercedes-Benz motor cars, the von Krieger Special Roadster, a 1936 Mercedes-Benz 540 K, will be presented at Gooding & Company’s Pebble Beach Auction on August 18 & 19.
“As one of Mercedes-Benz’ ultra-rare 540 K Special Roadsters, the von Krieger Special Roadster is already a special car, yet it ranks superior to other examples because of its unrivalled condition, history and provenance,” says David Gooding, President and founder of Gooding & Company. “Its complete restoration, beautiful story and thoroughly documented history make it absolutely extraordinary and perhaps the finest 540 K Special Roadster in existence. It is the most exciting pre-war Mercedes-Benz I’ve ever known.”
