A second masterpiece of German engineering is the 1939 Mercedes-Benz 540 K Cabriolet A (€1,700,000 -
2,300,000) that was originally owned by HRH King Hussein of Jordan and is being offered directly by his
family. The rarest of the Cabriolet examples built by the German marque, the 'A' has the shortest chassis,
lending the stately and imposing car a slightly sleeker silhouette.
Arguably one of the most recognizable and desirable classic cars in existence is the Mercedes-Benz
Gullwing. The 1958 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL 'Gullwing' Coupé (€1,100,000-1,500,000) offered is in immaculate
concours-ready condition and is believed to be the only Gullwing in the world fitted with a new factory-supplied
aluminum engine. It has been exhibited and taken part in some of the most prestigious motoring events in the
world including the Concours Arts et Elegance Richard Mille in Chantilly, the Flying Stars exhibition at
Mercedes-Benz Paris showroom and the Spain Rally FIA.
A variety of important Porsches are included in the sale, such as the blisteringly fast 1997 Porsche Ruf CTR2
- for many years the fastest production vehicle in existence. Capable of reaching 69pm in under 3.5 seconds
and with a top speed of 220mph, this is arguably the ultimate 90's performance car. It outperformed the Ferrari
F50, Jaguar's XJ220 and equaled the astonishing Nissan R390 GT1. Rare, exotic and dazzlingly powerful.
A second interesting offering from the Stuttgart marque is the timeless 1950 Porsche 356 Split-Window 'Four
Digit' Coupé (€800,000-1,100,000), a concours-ready example of one of the most iconic sports cars ever
created. This seriously rare split windscreen version is thought to be one of only 30 survivors and has won
prizes across Europe such as 'Most Iconic Car' at the Zoute Concours d'Elegance and 'Best Restoration' at
InterClassics Brussels. It is in absolutely original condition and would make a remarkable addition to any
