Mercedes-benz classic Inventors of the motor car
Mercedes is a big league producer of most luxury and comfortable vehicles, the car brand of ultimate recognition, development engineering and first-class performance. It is a most long-standing automobile brand, and its journey began in 1886, when Karl Benz manufactured the first gasoline-powered car. The first cars under its name were sold in 1901, and soon the first racing car, Blitzen Benz, was produced.
Its worth exploring the many classic cars that have come from the oldest of all marques. For example, the Mercedes Benz 300SL is considered by many as one of the best cars of all time, featuring heavily in top 100 lists. Variations on this such as the ‘Gullwing’ 300SI, as featured at the top of this page are also truly iconic. The designation SL derives from the German Sport Leicht, or Sport Lightweight and was first applied to the 300SL. This sporting prowess flows through to today’s AMG powerhouses – classics in the making.
Going further back in time, for let’s face it we are talking about the inventors of the motorcar, there are some great examples – from grand and rather beautiful pre-war tourers like the 500K to the legendary Silver Arrows grand prix cars – Mercedes’ long history has produced many best-of-breed cars.
The SSK – in production from 1928 to 1938 pops up in classic car shows as well as any gangster movie. For some reason villains just love to drive big Mercedes – from dictators like Ceaușescu to 1930’s gangsters. Mercedes means power, safety and opulence. Unlike some of these villains, mercedes tend to last. Classic Mercedes are famed for their reliability as well as holding their value, making them an all round good investment.
Everyone has their favourite. For me its the 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560 Series Convertible which was the epitome of cool, elegant style when I was growing up. Not as showy (or expensive) as a Ferrari and more practical on all levels. Speaking of practical, the larger 4x4s from Mercedes‘ back catalogue have a high regard among our customers and the wider community.
So if you can see a three-pointed star on the bonnet of your classic car, get in touch with us to discuss how we can help you finance one of these fine cars.

Twenty years ago, in December 1996, Brooks auctioned a nice original Maserati 3500 GT Spider for £29,000. In February 2015 Artcurial sold one in similar condition for £620,000. Nevertheless, this model seems relatively inexpensive. Why, you may ask, is the Maserati 3500 GT/GTI Spider such an interesting car?
