1937 Mercedes-Benz 540K

This August, RM Auctions will list an exquisite 1937 Mercedes-Benz 540K during an auction organized in Monterey, California. The organizers expect that this model will break the world record auction price for a Mercedes-Benz.

Back in October 2007, a similar model from the same year, which belonged to F1’s boss Bernie Ecclestone, managed to fetch a whopping $8,252,201. The German automaker made only 406 units of this 540K model, during 1936 and 1939. When it was new, the price tag for this beauty was approximately $12,000. RM Auction says that in the present there are only three examples left.

If I were to guess, this Mercedes-Benz 540K from 1937 will fetch more than $10,000,000 when it will be auctioned. We’ll keep you posted.
