The RM Sotheby’s auction this week is actually a pretty select group. The total list of items is barely 100 pieces, with actual cars about a third of that!

But what a group of cars. Some trading carports locally, and some coming and going from abroad.

This duo is most likely to head home to Germany.

An exceptional 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SC Coupe, plus its roadster sister from 1956.

The pre-sale estimates for these two could not be further apart.  Care to guess which will earn double?   $1.2M vs $600K?

It is the roadster.

De facto classic car auction rules definitely in play:

  • two doors trump four, of course.
  • ragtop beats coupe.

To prove how amazingly retro-chic this design can be, consider these renders showing the 300SC with a bit more gangster lean.

Then dive deep into these two beauties in 30-photo, high-res galleries each.

The sale is on Thursday of this week.
