As one of the very best and earliest 540k examples, chassis 130945 is 1 of only 5 factory “transition” low profile “500K” sport body styles with the 540K supercharged engine. With dual rear mounted spare tires, clam shell open fenders and a stunning color combination restored to perfection, this is the ultimate Cabriolet A example of the iconic 540K Mercedes-Benz pre war line of cars.

Mercedes Factory Inspection
This “Sport” Cabriolet A is an excellent example of one of the most significant Mercedes-Benz automobiles ever built, and its 500K body/540K engine configuration is extremely desirable and rare. The exceptionally low windshield and setback radiator give the body a very sporting look while the twin rear spares give a sporting, elegant and streamlined appearance, particularly when compared to the more conventional Cabriolet A body configuration with its higher beltline.
