Another 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing will try to find a new owner next month, try at America’s Fort Lauderdale Collector Car Auction in South Florida.
The 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing in question is just one of 1,400 units of the sports car sold in the United States and it’s finished in DB320 Blue, coming with a contrasting factory red leather interior. The model is just the second one to be auctioned these weeks and its brother will try to find a new owner during the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, where it’s expected to fetch between 800,000 USD and 950,000 USD, significantly less than the one sold at the Gooding & Company’s Scottsdale, Arizona auction, in 2012, for 4.62 million USD.
