This Chairman was advertised in QLD Australia on Gumtree.com.au in November 2019. It was originally advertised as a a 2007 model, but a rego search confirms its a 2005. Low ks, buf not sure how well its been looked after, certainly going cheap asking only $1,000 - no rego at the time it was offered, NOt many of these sold in Australia.. If yiou've got one, sign up and add yours to the register.
This early example of the C140 was imported to Poland from Switzerland in 2019. As an early C140, it has the 500SEC badgingf (as compared to the later S500 and CL 500 badging). Looks to be in reasonable condition with reasonable mileage for its age. Service records shown in the image look fairly comprehensive. A nice modern classic benz.
This is one of 374 units built by Rolls-Royce between 2000 and 2002, and is the very last of the hand built Rolls-Royce Corniche vehicles. At the time this car was built, it's very difficult to find anything that rivalled the opulent luxury and style
This particular car is located in Las Vegas, Nevada, and has very low mileage as you would expect of such a unique and collectible vehicle. The car retains its original and immaculate Sunrise Pearl paint matched with perfect Beige Connolly leather trim. It has been regularly serviced, and is in immaculate mechanical condition ready for the next Rolls Royce enthusiast to enjoy.
With the low production numbers, attention to detail and unrivalled (timeless) style, the Corniche of this era was always an instant classic. Prices are starting to reflect the special status of this Rolls, and if you have the means for this sort of vehicle as a collector, it should be on your list.
Spotted this one, and many others, on the polish site allegro.pl. The 140 series Mercedes seems to be particularly popular with Polish people, and even where I live in Australia, when I bought my C140 in Sydney - the seller was Polish! Anyway, having a look at this one it has reaosnably average mileage for its age and type, and looks overall in good condition.
The seller at the time noted the following comments about this car, which is a rare 420 model (most are 500/600)..
It's not actually a 65 Daytona, but a partial clone with teh vinyl roof, and a close colour to the Bordeaux Red. Looks to have a 64 Daytona trunk lid, and nicely finisged custim trim, this example was advertised on Ebay USA asking $24,000 USD in Oct 2019. In the original advertisement the seller noted the following:
Found on Ebay USA in October 2019 with a classified ad price of $13,500 USD. One of only 6,622 cars built, these are becoming quite collectible and were sold in quite a number of markets - tche main of course being the USA where the styling was clearly aimed. The seller didn't give any details about this particular car but it looks great - hope it found a good home. Check out the other Bertone Volvos on the register below.
Not too often you see the CL / S600 come up in this sort of condition, with only 36,550 miles on the clock. Immaculate in and out, we spotted this one on ebay USA in October 2019. A real museum piece and future classic for sure. The last of the Bruno Sacco Benz cars. The seller made the following comments at the time of sale, asking $26,000 USD:
"Mercedes 1996 S600 Mint original, garage kept, 36,000 miles. Concours condition, no dust on car, inside , or engine.1 of a kind condition, everything works. Serviced and kept in great condition"
This one was spotted on Craiogslist.com in October 2019, and is in a very sad state. One of only 8,500 Bertone designed cars built, the majority of which were sold in the USA. The Bertone 780 is a substantial advancement from the earlier Bertone Volvo Coupes built on the 240 series chassis - and in my opinion is a very refined looking coupr for its time, blending in well with other European coupes of the time. Let's hope this one finds a loving new home and has a bit of trim work done.
