    I would have this over a new AMG

    Found this on a Monday afternoon and looking for distractions from the business of working ...

    no price, so must be 6 figures!

    that's pretty beautiful. 

    If I had the need and the money, the 600 Pullmans (W100) that Brabus are doing would be high on the list. Looks identical (other than perfectly restored) to original from the outside with a S600 engine and gearbox, brakes etc. getting rid of the massive nightmare hydraulic system.

    that Brabus 600 sounds fantastic 


    Re: I would have this over a new AMG

    Neat death trap ;)

    As much as I like some old cars, I'd have safety concerns. 99.99999% chance nothing bad happens, but that .00001 is like death. Every says it will never happen to them, but I've had a friend hit head on by a drunk drivers, my brother rolled his car once, and another person I know rolled one in a ditch a year ago...


    Re: I would have this over a new AMG

    It can't be that bad of a death trap. In that era benz did crash tests with real people in their cars. angry

    I would have thought they ceased such practices after MY1945...


    Re: I would have this over a new AMG

    They did it in the 60's.

    Was just watching a documentary about 70 years anniversary of WW2! Can't believe it's been that long!


    Re: I would have this over a new AMG

    Lovely car. My friends father has one here for years. He drives it only on weekends

    I heard the convertible version is one of the most thought after vintage Mercs. 


    Re: I would have this over a new AMG

    I lusted after this too:

     

     

     


    Re: I would have this over a new AMG

    Ha!Tthe car I learned to drive in!

    Except it was a hardtop, with a manual transmission and the six cylinder motor. Non-assisted steering too.

    still a fabulous experience


    Re: I would have this over a new AMG

    I love it, it's not a death trap at all. Super well built and huge crumble zones. Another plus is you won't be doing 100mph in it. If it's other traffic that got you concerned i'd rather be in this than any Mini, Smart, or any of the generic small entry cars.. a la fiesta etc..

    That said, Id rather be in  50's Benz than a 50's Chevy in a crash...

    That's right. But honestly - driving vintage car means taking the risk of driving motor-cylce. My wife always asks me why I are ok not having seat belts when driving our 356 - my answer, I don't buckle up on top of my Harley neither. And don't forget - you are cruising with those old cars. This takes already a lot of risk away.


    Re: I would have this over a new AMG

    Nope, this car doesn't do anything for me but it is no secret I'm not so much into old-timers.

    I love some of the older US pony/muscle cars or Italian sports cars  but the SL Pagode for example isn't my thing at all...or any other older Mercedes (incl. the 300 SL) for that matter.

    This is so sad - my buddies father used to own one. Perfect shape, only been driven in summer. About 10 years ago he sold that car for around 30k€ .... SmileySmileySmiley


    Re: I would have this over a new AMG

    I think the "market value" of the car is more like Euros 250,000


    Re: I would have this over a new AMG

    Used to be 200k  ten years ago. 


    Re: I would have this over a new AMG

    650k Euros is the price of a decent 300 SL Gullwing, isn't it?


    Re: I would have this over a new AMG

    sfo:

    10 years ago. Today you will not be below the 1 Mio for a decent 300 SL.


    Re: I would have this over a new AMG

    In Germany decent 280SE Convertibles are between 160 and 300 k€. 

    Found a nice one for 170k€

    http://suchen.mobile.de/fahrzeuge/details.html?id=218268759&ambitCountry=DE&categories=Cabrio&sortOption.sortBy=crea...

    But you can also outrages like this one for 450k€

    lovely .. and vaguely affordable


    Re: I would have this over a new AMG

    I don't believe that these prices for classic cars are sustainable, it makes no sense.
