1953 Mercedes-Benz 300 S Coupé W188 I
Current location: Eastern Spain

History & current state

This Mercedes-Benz 300 S coupé unit was made in late ’52, and the car was registered in Spain on March 5th, 1953. Its provenance is quite curious.

The original and only owner of this 300 S Coupé was Mr. Ignacio Barraquer i Barraquer, who was also owner of 1 of only 2 remaining 540K Autobahn Kurier.

Mr Barraquer was a groundbreaking ophtalmologist, performing unique eye surgeries which later became the standard worldwide, but at the time, it was close to a miracle for some patients who were almost blind.

Celebrities, sheiks and royalty from around the world travelled to Barcelona to recover their eyesight, and some of them were so grateful that gave Mr. Barraquer unique gifts, such as these cars.

Here’s the rare chance to get a 1-owner 300 S Coupé to add to a collection. It is the first time that this car is offered for sale. The car has never been restored and it is in good overall shape, retaining most of its original parts, including engine and chassis matching numbers.

Price: Price on application
