This is a copy of a rare model.
In Vinnytsia sell an unusual car – rare Mercedes-Benz 540K Special Roadster, 1938. In the world about 50 pieces, but a particular instance of selling only for $20 000.
Surprising, because at auction prices for this model go up to $10 000 000. Why Ukrainian copy is 500 times less?
Before us is a copy. It should be noted, not very accurate, but not the worst quality. It is also important to remember that the probability to see the original Mercedes-Benz 540K Special Roadster is very small. Therefore, only a real enthusiast will be able to identify a fake.
The car body is painted in bright red color – very distinctive shade for the Mercedes 540K. But first of all give a copy of the more modern stamped wheels, which are just not used 80 years ago and lack of chrome embellishments on the body. The salon also does not meet the present car, although in a lot of natural wood.
The technical part is also different. Instead of the original 8-cylinder engine capacity of 5.4 liter capacity of 115 HP (or 180 HP in versions with compressor) which includes a 1.8-liter engine.
