Black and White Wednesday – 1936 Mercedes-Benz 540 Replica Roadster


Sorry about bring up another car, but here it is as seen at the Leake Car Auction here in Tulsa this past weekend. I thought it beautiful. Look at the sleek swooping lines and all the headlights and horns. It is best to just get out of the way when this bad boy shows up. I don’t know about the value of replicas but the real things regularly go for over $10 million!! You could buy over 600 of the cars I drive ( a Kia Soul)  for that, brand new!! Not some nearly 80 year old heap.

    Handsome car but I can’t even imagine that much money???? Great B&W for the day! Hope your week is off to a good start! Enjoy!

    Womderful image. I believe that replicas typically go for around 1/10th of the value of the original. However, I doubt if this one would reach the $1million mark, but it might stretch well into six figures. Still, if you want to attract a crowd and be the center of attention, this is the car for you. Love it.
