For those looking to pick up a classic Mercedes-Benz in literal museum condition, then you’re in luck as the official Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart has announced that it will be selling off some of its cars on display.
The cars up for sale have been divided into three categories; Premium Edition, Collectors Edition and Drivers Edition. The first of those is made of up vehicles that have been completely restored by Mercedes-Benz, are in original condition, very rare and have covered few miles. Meanwhile the Collectors Edition models are also in good condition but haven’t been restored and therefore provide customers with a great opportunity to embark on relatively minor restorations.
As for the Drivers Edition cars, they too are in good running condition but could benefit from additional restoration. Additionally, Drivers Edition models are all vintage while the others span different decades.
All the vehicles for sale can be viewed in person at the museum. To help provide an easy and seamless buying experience, there is an experienced sales team there that have been trained to know intricate details about the history of all the individual cars. Before any of the vehicles are sold, they go through a 160-item checklist designed by Mercedes-Benz.
Not all the models have been listed just yet but among them is a Mercedes-Benz 630 Compressor, Mercedes-Benz E60 AMG Limited Edition and certainly of most interest to us, a 1998 Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK-LM Le Mans endurance racer. Impressively, the CLK-LM in question is chassis number 1 and was only ever used during pre-qualifying at the 1998 24 Hours of Le Mans.
