London, England, May 21, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Broad Arrow Auctions, a Hagerty (NYSE: HGTY) company, is delighted to announce it will present an exceptional 1963 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster for private sale at the prestigious and exclusive Savile Row Concours d’Elegance this 22-23 of May. Additional highlights of the display will also include selected petroliana and memorabilia lots that will be offered via Online Auction in July and October of 2024. The July Broad Arrow Online Auction will consist of a single-owner collection that features more than 200 lots of petroliana, all of which will be offered without reserve, while the Fall sale will be made of principally Formula One memorabilia.

 Karsten Le Blanc, Vice President of Broad Arrow Capital and Head of EMEA, states, “On behalf of my English and European colleagues, I am delighted to share our excitement in being a first-time sponsor of the Savile Row Concours d’Elegance. We are excited to present this exceptional Private Sales Mercedes-Benz for consideration alongside highlights from the upcoming Petroliana and memorabilia sales. For an entirely bespoke experience, we encourage those interested to stop by our space alongside The Huntsman for a compelling display curated with outstanding taste and superior craftsmanship.”

The 1963 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL, offered at £1,200,000, is one of 26 final-model-year 300 SL Roadsters, and the 13th from the very last car built, is among only 210 late-production examples of the iconic Mercedes-Benz that is equipped with Dunlop disc brakes and an aluminum engine block. Originally dispatched to a marque distribution agency in the Netherlands, the car was initially finished in Light Blue (DB 334) over Burgundy leather (DB 202).

Prior to joining the current owner’s stable, chassis no. 003246 was the subject of a concours-quality restoration by Jürgen Kassen in Oerlinghausen, Germany to its current, period-correct Pearl Green (DB 213) exterior and green leather finishes. The monumental undertaking also saw the Roadster receive numerous mechanical upgrades and modern convenience features, including an improved cooling system and a diaphragm spring clutch, electric windows, Becker Mexico radio with GPS, air-conditioning and a highly coveted removable body-colour hard-top.

Matt Coles, Petroliana and Memorabilia Specialist for Broad Arrow, states, “I am delighted to present this outstanding UK-based collection of Petroliana. Highlights range from very rare and special pre-war gas pumps to large-scale Michelin Bibendums. The auction will comprise approximately 200 lots and be hosted on the Broad Arrow Auctions website this July, please check the website in the coming weeks as all lots are posted for early bidding. Coming this Fall, we are thrilled to present an exciting collection of racing memorabilia including significant F1 helmets as a feature, further details will be announced in the coming weeks.”
