The Mercedes-Benz 540K Autobahnkurier W29 sports car is the successor to the Autobahnkurier 8 cylinder Compressor Type 500 first presented in Berlin in 1934.
The W29 in the 500K and 540K version had three chassis options. There were 761 cars produced, sold and delivered as Tourer, Limousine, Coupes, Autobahnkuriere, Roadster and Convertibles.
The Autobahnkurier Type 540K was only produced 2 or 3 times.
One of these vehicles belongs to a Mexican Wine Merchant Arturo Keller, who bought the car recently from the son of a Spanish Proffessor Ignacio Barraquer and has had it totally restored.
A second model is believed to be lost somewhere in Iran and the third models existence is not completely verified.
Since the restoration from Mercedes Collector, Mr. Artur Keller he will often be found on various Competitions and Old timer Rallies with his Autobahn-Kurier. A recent success being the Gold Cup Prize at the Concorso dÉleganza on the Comer Sea where he won this "Public best" prize for his wonderful presented vehicle.
The delivery price for a new Mercedes Benz 540K Autobahn-Kurier in those days cost approximately 24.000 Reichsmark, which compared to today's value, an outstanding sum of 160.000 Euros.
