Bonhams announces single-marque auction at Mercedes-Benz Museum
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.
