790,000 €

Unique opportunity for collectors! We offer an absolute one-of-a-kind piece – the only Lancia Aurelia B52 Vignale Spider ever built in stunning green metallic combined with Bordeaux red leather trim and black top. The car was produced in 1953 and later exhibited in 1955 at the Brussels Motor Show. Subsequently, the sale was made to a wealthy man of the Belgian royal family. After two additional owners in Belgium, the Aurelia arrived in Italy in 2010. This was followed by a complete and perfect restoration down to the smallest detail over four years. The vehicle includes a comprehensive documentation with pictures of the 1955 Motor Show, correspondence of the previous owners, restoration pictures, FIAT register extracts and FIFA Identity Card

The only company worldwide dedicated solely to the restoration of the exclusively valuable Mercedes-Benz 300 SL. Serving for the past 25 years with intelligence, dedication and enthusiasm. Entrepreneur, director and world-renowned expert in the automotive icon with the trademark star, is Hans Kleissl. Hardly anyone else has such a wealth of knowledge, experience, and passion. Being a classic car enthusiast and collector himself led to his founding of HK-ENGINEERING. „He's one of us,” is the common opinion among his customers. HK-ENGINEERING is set in a lovingly restored monastery in the Bavarian village of Polling, with an additional branch in the Berlin Classic Remise. Further partners and representatives are located outside of German borders, listed in detail under the heading „Contact.“ HK-ENGINEERING is well-established. Throughout years of service in Kleissl's SL workshop, mechanical engineers have made technical contributions to the sustainable conservation of this unique Mercedes model series. As a result, while it previously took at least a year to bring a Gullwing or Roadster back to its original glory, the mechanics in Polling can now finish an entire „resurrection” of a 300 SL in only six to nine months. HK-ENGINEERING offers its clients restoration of nearly all original parts: from refurbishing old leathers to matching original body paint. Of course, they are also able to restore classic Mercedes-Benz cars from the ground-up. Since 1995, HK-ENGINEERING has operated its own racing team. To date they've built a dozen SLS-type cars. „While others speak of their great technical competence, we prove ours on the track,“ boasts Hans Kleissl. Aside from the vast technical expertise, Kleissl is deeply involved in the social aspect of the 300 SL series. He has served on the board of directors for the 300 SL club of Germany for more than ten years. More than fifty 300 SL automobiles are currently in the Polling establishment. To meet the ever-growing demand, the team of HK-ENGINEERING has grown to more than forty employees.
