Car enthusiasts are forever indebted to Mercedes-Benz for reviving their all time favorite Maybach, which is now better known as a modern ultra-luxury marque. The famous car brand went an extra mile by making the Maybach even more exclusive than the original models that were made between 1921 and 1941. A little bit of online research tells us that less than 2,000 Maybachs were manufactured in this period, of which only a mere 150 survive today in the company of serious collectors.
Once again, the car world is excited as a very rare 1938 Maybach SW 38 Cabriolet surfaced for a sale in Germany. The coachwork of this one has been done by Spohn of Revensburg. And JamesList is responsible for organising the sale of this one at an estimated price of €690,000.
This luxury roadster is a 5-passenger convertible with an exterior finishing in two-tone red and aubergine. It was last exhibited in 1938 and sold to its first owner Baron von Mylke. By the time the war got over, the car was allocated to the Chinese military mission in Berlin only to be acquired by a German architect years later.
