Sell your Mercedes-Benz on Collecting Cars
Mercedes-Benz model range
Popular models such as the W121 190 SL and W113 ‘Pagoda’ SL find homes in many collections around the world; brimming with ‘50s and ‘60s glamour and supported by a fantastic network of enthusiasts and specialists. Subsequent models in the SL line such as the R107 and R129 are far more affordable, but are equally well-supported.
The mid-size W123 and W124 models can make ideal entry points to classic Mercedes ownership, with the latter especially desirable in coveted 500 E specification, which was developed in conjunction with and assembled by Porsche.
This heritage of high-powered saloon cars can also be found in the likes of the earlier W109-era 300 SEL 6.3 and the 450 SEL 6.9; representing the precursors to today’s ‘super saloons’. Prior to the brand’s switch to solely turbocharged V8s, the W204 C63 AMG was one of the best examples of the ‘big engine in a compact body’ philosophy – though that was taken even further by the riotous SLK 55 AMG, with a 5.4-litre V8 in a car not much bigger than a Ford Fiesta.
Without doubt one of the high watermarks of Mercedes-Benz’s high-capacity V8 models is the SLS AMG. Equipped with a 6.3-litre engine producing 563bhp – and up to 622bhp in the hallowed Black Series – it also featured the theatrical 300SL-inspired ‘gullwing’ doors.
Any discussion of landmark Mercedes road cars must include the blistering SLR McLaren, conceived thanks to the companies’ long-standing Formula 1 collaboration, and with its carbon monocoque and supercharged 5.4-litre V8 giving it sensational performance. Its design was inspired by the 1955 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupé.
Mercedes-Benz sale highlights
More than 900 Mercedes-Benz cars have now sold on Collecting Cars, spanning more than 70 years of the marque’s history. Among the highest-value sales have been a very usable 1959 300 SL Roadster (£833,500), a coveted SLS AMG Black Series (€580,000), and an exceptionally rare CLK DTM Cabriolet ($387,000).
Over 100 examples of the R107 SL have changed hands, with the flagship 560 SL of course yielding the top results. A well-preserved R107 560SL in Australia was won with a bid of A$129,500, while in the UK a 21,516-mile 560 SL roadster found a new home for £39,250.
While the R129-era SL can make a remarkably affordable modern classic, rare models such as the SL60 AMG command high prices. Five such cars have sold on the platform, with the highest result being A$104,500; while two examples of the even rarer SL70 AMG have also found new homes – one for a remarkable €160,150.
Prices for 190 SLs and later ‘Pagoda’ models can vary greatly depending on condition and provenance, but the £141,000 achieved for a 280 SL in the UK reflects the premium for those with comprehensive restorations.
Among the more stately Mercedes-Benz models to be sold on Collecting Cars are no fewer than four examples of the fabled W100 600 ‘Grosser’, including an exceptionally rare 600 Pullman limousine – one of just 304 such cars (€225,000).
The 10 SLR McLarens in our ‘Sold’ section include a sensational ‘Edition’ Roadster, chassis 001, which found a winning bid of £405,000, as well as the 650bhp 722 Edition (£420,000). At the more rugged end of the spectrum for similar prices, a brand-new G63 AMG 4x4 Squared sold for €354,000, while a 2018 Brabus G900 was won with a bid of €325,000.
