Dubai Showstopper: $2.28 Million Mercedes-Benz 540K Special Roadster

— A renovated and rare 1937 Mercedes-Benz 540K Special Roadster, said to be worth $2.28 million, tempted wealthy buyers at the recently concluded motor show here.

The vehicle is owned by Hamburg-based E. Thiesen Automobile Raritaten, which says that between 1936 and 1939, only 419 540Ks were built by Mercedes-Benz in 10 different body styles. Of the Special Roadster version, only 25 examples were built and only 10 models remain in the world.

E. Thiesen says it took a team of engineers and mechanics eight years to rebuild this Benz. The company has the vehicle for sale and says its appearance in Dubai has resulted in "several potentially serious buyers."

Another Mercedes 540K Special Roadster, owned by Warner Brothers' Jack Warner, sold for $3.63 million, according to the Web site eMercedesBenz.
