15/09/2012 £2.8m 1928 Mercedes-Benz tops Bonhams' Revival sale
The 1928 Mercedes-Benz 36/220 6.8-litre S-Type Four-Seat Open Tourer, in the same family ownership since new, sold for £2,801,500.
The grey, RHD Mercedes was 'Refer Dept.' for price, so we will never know by how much it exceeded its reserve. It was clearly a success for the Bond St house, though, judging by the smile on auctioneer James Knight's face when he finally brought down the gavel.
