Seventy-six years after leaving the factory, one of the world’s most extraordinary Mercedes-Benz motor cars will be presented for public sale for the first time at Gooding & Company’s prestigious Pebble Beach Auctions on August 18 and 19.

With remarkable lineage, exceptional provenance and a rich international history akin to a Hollywood romance, the sensational von Krieger Special Roadster, a 1936 Mercedes-Benz 540K, will be the most significant Mercedes-Benz to ever come to auction when it crosses Gooding & Company’s Pebble Beach stage later this summer.

We can’t wait…
