California’s star-studded treasure trove is hard to find. For the most exclusive Mercedes-Benz classic cars in the USA are well hidden away in an industrial park some 45 minutes south of Los Angeles. Behind the unprepossessing gates lie automotive gems that make any visitor’s eyes pop.
The grey Mercedes-Benz 300, one of the rare “Adenauer cabriolets”, is the most spectacular model to have paid a visit to the Classic Center in recent months. The grey specimen is probably the finest of its kind to be found anywhere in the world. “In the last four years, we’ve painstakingly restored the vehicle,” says Michael Kunz, General Manager of the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center in Irvine.
