Mercedes 300 SL Values
With its iconic doors the 300 SL Gullwing stands out as one of the most beautifully designed cars in Mercedes-Benz history, and prices show that the market agrees. Over the past five years values achieved at UK auctions have held consistently strong and resisted the tailing off that other marques have suffered since 2017, consistently selling in the £840,000 – £940,000 range.
The 300 SL Roadster followed a pattern which is true of the wider market, rising from 2014 through to a peak in 2017 before softening slightly and returning to values achieved in 2014.
Sales in 2014 were in the £600,000 – £650,000 range, climbing to £850,000 – £1,000,000 around 2017 with the most recent sale in July 2019 achieving just under £600,000.
International sales show a similar pattern in relation to the pricing difference of the two models – since 2019 Gullwing sales have averaged $1.1m in America (£890,000) and €1.1m (£960,000) in Europe whilst Roadsters have averaged $925,000 (£745,000) and €925,000 (£810,000).
With Roadster prices softer in the UK when compared to the international market we would target a Roadster at 2014 prices of £600,000 – £650,000.
