Description
Lot #682 - This extremely rare mercedes benz was one of the ed weaver collection in chatsworth, ga. This beautiful automobile was built for the 1986 paris auto show, and at the conclusion of the show it was given to the president of france. It was stated at that time that the original cost to build this car was over $250,000.00. According to heinz meis, with gemballa na, out of malibu, ca mercedes benz commissioned gemballa of italy to build only 10 of these unique automobiles and this 560 sec was the first of 10. Heinz stated that this is one of the rare collectables in the mercedes-benz collection of germany and one was given to the chancellor of germany. Mercedes did not sell any of these automobiles, but only gifted these magnificently rare and collectable automobiles to various heads of state. The car was purchased from ed weavers wife, linda, in june of 1999 and has been stored in a controlled environment. While linda is not sure of the details of how ed came to own this car for his huge collection (at the time of ed's untimely death his collection of world class automobiles was undisputedly the largest collection in the world) linda did state this was the last car ed purchased and she did not feel she was ready to let go of the car in the estate auction of 1995 so she pulled the car. This mercedes-benz/gemballa is believed to be the only one in the united states and most probably the only one ever offered to the public.
