Mercedes 300SL Roadster heads to Artcurial’s new Hong Kong auction

Mercedes 300SL Roadster heads to Artcurial’s new Hong Kong auction Classic and Performance Car

Artcurial announces new Hong Kong auction on 5-6 October


French auction house Artcurial has announced a new Hong Kong-based auction on 5-6 October, which focuses on various works of art. One exception is the inclusion of a Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster.

Collaborating with international auctioneers Spink & sons, which generally specialises in stamps, coins, bank notes and other collectibles, this new sale represents Artcurial’s first ever sale in Asia.

The only major automotive consignment for the sale is a 1961 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL roadster, which is estimated HK$10,000,000–HK$15,000,000 (around $1.3m–$1.95m). This car has been in the hands of a single family for a total 48 years, and has been ‘meticulously’ maintained.

Being a 1961 model means that this 300SL is one of the best sorted, featuring disc brakes. This example also comes complete with the hugely desirable factory hard top.
