Embodying the pinnacle of American classic-era automobiles, an important 1930 Cadillac V-16 Roadster, will also be offered in the sale.

A premier luxury automobile of the US from the early 20th century, this Packard is a limited edition Twelve series that is highly sought after, especially as a Coupe Roadster. The flowing and elegant Coupe Roadster is not short on style, with one of the most desirable body styles offered in 1936 and finished in a stunning livery of black over a red leather cabin. The car is expected to reach between $325,000 – 375,000.

 1962 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL Roadster
