Among the No Reserve cars are nine from a single collection including a stunning, concours-quality 1938 Mercedes-Benz 540K Cabriolet B. One of just 419 540K chassis built in all. Just 4 owners from new! Unlike so many others, this example carries a cloud-free history, having been delivered new to Great Britain.
