He may have been dead for almost 30 years but the appeal of The King lives on. Fans of Elvis Presley are expected to get into a bidding war on eBay over his gleaming 1970
Mercedes – with bids starting at £140,000.

Classic car dealership Daniel Schmitt & Co, based in the US, has put the 280 SEL saloon up for auction, saying Presley was seen regularly driving around his home city of Memphis
in the Mercedes.

DESCRIPTION
Coming up for public sale for the first time in over a decade, is the chance to own one of “The King’s” personal automobiles that spent time parked in front of Graceland (as seen in
the image above).

This 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL was purchased new in 1970 in Memphis, Tennessee by Elvis Presley. The “King” of Rock n Roll was no stranger to high-end cars; he owned
numerous Cadillacs, BMWs, Rolls-Royces, Lincolns, Ferraris, and a few Mercedes.

The example seen here is a 1971 280SEL top-of-the-line Sedan which Elvis also purchased from Robertson's Mercedes-Benz and signed for on December 21, 1970. The car left
the factory with code 542 (Dark Red) paint, but that color wasn’t up to the “King’s” standards. He soon had it repainted in Alpha Crystal Blue Metallic, a color suspiciously similar to
that of his Powder Blue 1970 Mercedes-Benz 600 Limo.

This example is one of very few cars that Elvis was seen in on a regular basis driving around Memphis. After Elvis’ death in 1977, his 280SEL was put on display at a prominent
museum where it remained until earlier this year. The vehicle is still equipped with its factory options including air conditioning, power windows, power steering, power brakes, and a
Becker Europa radio that is still in working condition.

This 280SEL is well documented and comes with copies of the title registration, the original title (both of which bare Elvis’ signature), a copy of the original Bill of Sale, as well as a
photo of the vehicle parked in front of Graceland. Ready to make an investment that you can actually enjoy?

According to Motortrend, the classic car market has recently shown more growth than hedge funds with projected returns of 161% after five years and a whopping 467% after a
decade. Please contact one of our expert sales consultants for more information. They will be happy to give you a complete walk-around, supply you with a more detailed
