This Mercedes Benz coupé was reserved in the sixties for the rich and famous. And even now in classic status, owning this graceful car is a utopia for many. The ultimate in luxury and class remains unattainable. Fortunately, possession is not always necessary. As enthusiasts we can enjoy, even though others drive around to my heart's content. And you can't convert that enthusiasm into euros, because pure interest is priceless.
The owner wanted to unfold his plans for the Mercedes. First of all, enjoy the joys of life with this work of art, such as cherishing an exclusive classic car. In addition, he wants to keep the look of the time, but also install modern technology.
For the future
The owner has perfection as a principle, but also admitted that he would like to see an increase in value towards the future. It therefore serves as a storage place for savings, after all, the value of exclusive cars increases with age. Well… we hear it so often: Money does not make you happy, but some still prefer to see the monetary value rather than the emotional value. Whatever the motivation, we as enthusiasts continue to experience that sense of light excitement at the sight of this Mercedes 220 SE Coupé, and those little pleasures are even completely free.
