Bonhams announces single-marque auction at Mercedes-Benz Museum

Building on not only the success of the Aston Martin Works auctions in Newport Pagnell, but also last year’s record sale of the W196, Bonhams has announced a single-marque sale that will take place at the Mercedes Museum in Stuttgart on 12 July 2014…

With a lotlist set to feature no fewer than 40 important cars from the illustrious marque’s back catalogue (further consignments are still invited), the newly announced sale forms the latest chapter in a so-far highly successful partnership between the British auction house and Mercedes-Benz Classic. Having worked together closely since the early 1990s, the pair joined forces last year to achieve the World Record sum of £19.6m paid for the ex-Fangio Mercedes-Benz W196 GP car at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The collaborative auction will take place at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany, on 12 July 2014. Classic Driver will preview the sale closer to the time.

In the meantime, you can find hundreds of classic Mercedes in the Classic Driver Market.
