Mercedes-Benz Classic will showcase the 540 K Streamliner at this year's Pebble Beach Concours d’Elégance. Following extensive restoration and reconstruction, this extraordinary vehicle dating from 1938 will celebrate its international public premiere on the west coast of America. The 540 K will also participate in the Tour d’Elégance on Thursday 14 August, and exhibited at the Concours d’Elégance on Sunday 17 August.

"The 540 K Streamliner represents the embodiment of perfection in its purest form", says Michael Bock, Head of Mercedes-Benz Classic and Customer Center. "The integrity of its overall design as well as numerous technical details do not only epitomise the innovative power of the Mercedes-Benz brand but also its expertise in the development of one-off vehicles to meet the very highest expectations in terms of design, comfort and customer benefit."

This exceptional vehicle was built with a powerful supercharged engine for high-speed, long distance motoring. Thanks to its lightweight aluminium bodyshell developed in the wind tunnel, the 540 K Streamliner is an object lesson in efficiency for its size class. In addition to its lightweight construction and sophisticated aerodynamics, it is the car's outstanding exterior and interior design, elegant appointments and spaciousness that make the 540 K Streamliner such a very special vehicle.

As part of a complex and time-consuming project, Mercedes-Benz Classic restored and rebuilt the vehicle to its original condition, using only the technical skills, methods and materials of the period from which the vehicle originates.The result is a spectacular, one-of-a-kind vehicle, as it was in 1938: a herald of the future, combining innovative 1930s vehicle design with exceptional efficiency and a sophisticated, sleek aesthetic appeal.
