Mercedes-Benz 500 K special roadster.

The Mercedes-Benz 500 K was the car of the rich and the beautiful. Together with the representative Grand Mercedes, the elegant 500 K sports car was the brand’s show-piece in the 1930s. Of the eight different bodywork versions of the 500 K, the special roadster was the most appealing, the most elegant and – at a price of 28,000 Reichsmark (roughly equivalent to 98000 EUR) – the most expensive.
