1935 Mercedes-Benz 500K

The 1935 Mercedes-Benz 500K was a luxury car produced by the German automobile manufacturer Mercedes-Benz between 1934 and 1936. The 500K was part of the first series of the popular Mercedes-Benz W29 line of cars.

The 500K was powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged straight-eight engine that produced 160 horsepower, making it one of the fastest cars of its time, capable of reaching speeds of up to 100 mph (160 km/h). The car also featured a four-speed manual transmission, rear-wheel drive, and hydraulic brakes.

The 500K was available in several body styles, including the Cabriolet A, B, C & D, Roadster, and Touring Body. The car’s styling was also notable, with its long hood, swooping fenders, and art deco-inspired details.

The 500K was a favorite among wealthy car collectors and was often used in high-end car races and rallies. Today, the 500K is considered a highly desirable classic car, with restored examples selling for millions of dollars at auction.
