Stuttgart's Mercedes museum to host another car auction in 2015

By RELAXNEWS | 5 January 2015

STUTTGART: Daimler is set to hold another exclusive car auction following the success of the 2014 event coordinated by Bonhams.

It will take place on March 28 at the Mercedes-Benz Museum here.

While it remains to be seen which models will go under the hammer in 2015, the sale will likely be similar to the first one held at the Mercedes museum in July 2014.

During this event, around 40 of the brand's most emblematic cars were auctioned off by Bonhams, including a 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL "Gullwing" and a 1934 500K, bringing in total revenues of close to 12 million euros (around RM50mil).

On July 12, 2013, Bonhams carried off its highest car sale yet during an auction taking place outside of the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The Mercedes W196 driven by Juan-Manuel Fangio to victory in the F1 World Cup in 1954 sold for no less than £19.6 million (around RM106mil).
