Although one of the very first 300 SLs destined for the French market, this car was not registered by its first owner until August of 1959. While it remained in French ownership, the car travelled to Mexico and Martinique during the 1960s. Following a brief spell in Switzerland, it was eventually acquired by Mercedes-Benz France in April of 1994 from a collector in Mulhouse. Still in highly original condition but ready for a restoration, it was consigned by Mercedes-Benz France to the one-make Mercedes-Benz by Artcurial sale in October of 2017.
