The magnificent Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR roaster featured here was manufactured in 1983 by famed craftsman and former Mercedes-Benz employee Anton Ostermeier. His Gullwing car company based in Gardena, California manufactured these incredible reproductions regardless of the cost. They were handcrafted and fitted with Ford drivetrains, and they sold new for $83, 000, which at the time was more than a new Ferrari. Less than 30 were produced and only a fraction are known to exist today. For everyone not familiar, last month Mercedes-Benz factory sold one of the 12 original 300 SLRs for a world record price of $143 million, the highest price ever paid for any automobile. The incredible example featured here is finished in stunning Masons black over a black interior and matching folding convertible top. This exquisite example was just released from a prominent private collection and has been preserved in nearly new condition. A complete recent service was just performed, and this wonderful motor car is ready for his next caretaker. Finding one of these for sale can take years. Impressively accurate in its presentation, the car is effortless and modern to drive. I have personally driven this exquisite 300 SLR roadster and I can tell you it is simply breathtaking with incredible performance along with a superb ride and handling. An incredible opportunity to acquire one of these original Anton Ostermeier 300 SLR for investment price, seldom do they come up for sale, especially in this like new condition. For the most sophisticated investor, collector, or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this fabulous car of the 80s.

With this bodystyle not being particularly in demand over the years, not many were sold locally and even less still ...
