Wow. Just wow. Never seen anything like it!
How wrong was that auction-master with his estimate, eh?
He should have recognized a one-off miracle and it's market appreciation.

I wonder if it was MB themselves who purchased this automobile, for their museum?

Highly unlikely. They already have one just like it on display. Theirs has about 300km on the clock if I remember right.

Greetings from Wicklow, ptashek! I'm in Ireland.

Greetings! Visiting or staying for longer? Wicklow is one of my favourite counties in Ireland.

Enjoy the views, best steak this side of the Atlantic, proper beer and whiskey ;)

I'm enjoying proper schnitzel in Vienna this week.
