The coupes of the W198 series are certainly among the most important models in Mercedes-Benz history. We can offer you a truly special vehicle of this series with this early coupé, which dates from the first year of production of the series. The gullwing from 1954 is one of the first cars ever built. To be exact the number 20. Only 167 examples were built in the year of publication, whereby the first 50 examples have unique details which still originate from the prototype status. With the long gearshift lever (gooseneck), the piping on the side fins and countless other details, the vehicle has all the typical features of the early pre-series models. A sensation! A report of more than 150 pages impressively records and documents the originality of every detail, no matter how small.

The vehicle was restored by the gullwing specialist "Hjeltness Restoration" in San Diego, California, in a way that deeply impresses us. Down to the smallest detail, the vehicle was restored to its delivery condition - in some cases even better than the new condition it was in when it was delivered. And another sensation is offered by this unique piece: the restoration is now more than 25 years old - so the work itself will soon be a classic car.
The vehicle is in top condition without exception and its uniqueness is beyond question for us.
The 54 Coupé in the extremely rare color "543 Strawberry Red Metallic" has already attracted attention at several Concours d'Elegance. Only 12 times this color was ordered by 300 SL customers! A unique beauty whose true value can hardly be quantified.
