2016 Santa Fe Sport

Classic cars are great. They are not usual, boring and full with electronics. On the other side they can be very, very expensive, mainly when the car is very rare or it is in great condition. A car like this can be fully or partly restored. It can be also in absolutely original condition, but this is very rare…

In my opinion, an expensive classic car should be professionally fully restored. In this case is, I think the expensive price adequate.

But there is this beautiful Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing. This is a very rare and a very nice looking car, until we don’t look in the interior. The dashboard and the steering wheel is absolutely all right, but those seats. I know some say “the old rare patina”. But I don’t think that they should look like this. They should be restored…

It was made in 1955 and was delivered to Los Angeles. The car had 4 owners and it was repainted once. The original color was the (DB 608) Ivory, and the actual color is the classic (DB 180) Mercedes-Benz Silver. The engine in this car is a 3.0-liter straight six cylinder with 240 bhp. The power is delivered trough a 4-speed manual gearbox. It can make 0-60 mph in approximately 8 seconds, and the top speed is 161 mph.

This car will be for sale at RM Sotheby’s Arizona auction on January 28. The estimated price is between $1 100 000 – $1 500 000, so cheapness is not the right word to describe this car…
