1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL

1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL

This 280SL was delivered new with the rare and desirable optional 5-speed ZF gearbox and fitted with the even rarer option of a limited-slip differential (Mercedes-Benz Datenkarte on file). It was sold new to Mr. Herman Kaiser in Duisburg, Germany on September 3, 1968, receiving the registration number DUAZ10. Then on January 21, 1972, the car passed to Erna Kaffenberger, a resident of Trier, Germany. The car was reregistered as TREK65.

In July 1983, Mrs. Kaffenberger moved to Saarbrücken and Read More

A Great Beater Sports Car

This First World question is posed to me frequently: Which Mercedes-Benz convertible should I purchase as my daily driver?

It’s a tough question.

High-quality examples of the Mercedes-Benz R107 are seemingly doubling in value overnight.

The R129 Series is doing what it was designed to do, which is spray hydraulic fluid from the top actuators everywhere — and cost you an arm and a leg for parts and repairs.

So, it makes financial sense — for those who want a Read More

2009 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series

The SL65 AMG Black Series was unveiled at Monterey in 2008. The base car SL65 AMG’s 6.0­liter V12 engine was retained for the Black Series, but it received larger turbochargers, a bigger intercooler, a new exhaust system and a suitably remapped ECU, resulting in an increase in maximum power to 670 horsepower (approximately a 10% improvement over the stock SL65 AMG) while torque went up to a mighty 737 lb/ft, delivered between 2,200 and 4,200 revs.

1953 Mercedes-Benz 300S Roadster

This elegant 300S roadster is finished in a lovely dark green color, while the interior has been retrimmed in the original red-brown color. A comprehensive restoration has been performed by the marque specialists at Kienle Automobiltechnik, and it is believed that fewer than 50 miles have been incurred since. The quality of the work is absolutely breathtaking, and the attention to detail and factory correctness is equally impressive.

The Joys of Depreciation

Top-level luxury saloons are rarely purchased as an investment, but they hold their place in the market because they are status symbols. Among status symbols, Mercedes has long been at the top, with the Maybach brand creating even more exclusivity than Rolls-Royce or Aston Martin.

A 2004 Maybach 57 sedan sold for $93,500, including buyer’s premium, at Barrett-Jackson’s 2016 Scottsdale auction. The car has fewer than 20,000 miles on the clock. Was this a stratosphere car gliding downward into Affordable Read More
