1935 Mercedes-Benz 290 Spezial Roadster

What more do we need to say, just look at this amazing bodywork, The attention to detail and those lines, German Quality!

This car was constructed in 1935 and originally served a very large role in the sales in Köningsberg for Daimler-Benz and was used in several bespoke events. Not much later, the car was sold to ‘Royal Highness Prince Albrecht of Bavaria’ and he drove the car to his palace in Leuchtenberg in Munich where it unfortunately also stayed during the war and was subsequently heavily damaged.  

A few of years ago, the car was rebuilt and restored to very high standards with an incredible eye for detail. Sadly, the body was so badly damaged by the war that it was beyond repair. The flamboyant,  lightweight aluminium "Spezial Roadster" body it now wears was remade to exact Mercedes factory drawings and with those elegant sweeping lines in now looks totally amazing.

The complete car was restored to the last nut and bolt a couple of years ago (so literally the car is in Concours condition from top to bottom) and hasn’t driven much since. Still matching numbers and stated as 1935 Mercedes 290 Spezial roadster on the German documents.

The meaning of Magnificence!
