Multi decade single owner - great history
Introduced at the 1936 Paris Motor Show, the Friedrich Geiger designed car was a development to the 500K, itself a development of the SSK. Available as a two-seater cabriolet, four seater coupé or seven seater limousine with armoured sides and armoured glass, it was one of the largest cars of the time.
The Sindelfingen factory, where this exclusive bodywork was created, employed 1,500 people to create the 540K for some of the world’s wealthiest and most famous, such as Jack L. Warner of Warner Brothers, and allowed a great deal of individual customisation.
This is a fine example coming from a long period of single ownership offered in lovely restored condition with various documentation including copies of the original factory commission sheet confirming it to be an original Cabriolet A and matching numbers.
