Sotheby's Sunday: From Must-See Automobiles to Homes for Car Enthusiasts

From a 1949 Bentley Racing Car to a 2008 Art Car

Must-see automobiles are heading to Florida for RM Sotheby’s Auction for 6-7 April. From a 1949 Bentley Racing Car to a 2008 Art Car, these may only come around once.

The RM Sotheby’s: Fort Lauderdale sale is one of RM’s most diverse events. Long considered one of South Florida’s premier automotive auctions, this year’s sale is headlined by two important automobiles: Mercedes-Benz 300 SLs, a Gullwing and a Roadster, from nearly 90 years of combined single ownership.

Mercedes-Benz 300 SLs (featured image) is being offered on behalf of its long-term owner since 1968. This 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing is one of the very last of its production line. It displays a host of unique late model upgrades, including the full leather interior and Becker-Mexico radio. Never entirely restored, this car retains an original interior that displays a fantastic patina. It is being sold with 100 per cent of the hammer proceeds benefitting the Jackson, Michigan YMCA.

 

1949 Bentley B Special Speed 8

Few automobiles are as beloved by enthusiasts as the 6½-Liter Bentley racing cars. The success of these engines established Bentley as the iconic racing car of the early 1930s. The car offered here is a truly stunning drivable homage to those early racing Bentleys. It was built from Bentley and Rolls-Royce components for the consignor by Racing Green Engineering Limited of Carmarthenshire, Wales, in 2011.
