Description
 
Beautiful factory built replica of the famous 1937 Mercedes 500K Roadster! The 500K was designed for the famous Marlena Dietrich. It is powered by a Ford V6 engine with automatic transmission, white walls, nice bright white paint, black convertible top and red interior! This is a factory built car, not one built in someone’s back yard.

Here's what automotive writer Curt Scott had to say about the 'Marlene' in the early 1990s: “Reminiscent of the styling of the legendary 500K Mercedes roadsters of the 1930s, the Marlene 500K is today one of Classic Roadsters’ most popular models. Even the name is reminiscent of the sentimental lyrics of the German (and Allied!) wartime ballad ‘Lili Marlene,’ that poignant tune ironically sung in German by (Swedish-born German) Lale (“Lolly”) Anderson, and in English by (German-born American) Marlene Dietrich. Classic Roadsters’ own literature points out, however, that the name was derived from the fact that in 1936 Daimler Benz was commissioned to design a personalized model for sultry international film star Marlene Dietrich, and thus for a historical touch the title “Marlene” seemed an appropriate sobriquet. Downsized a bit, and lighter and more nimble than the Teutonic original, the Marlene is the marvelous motorcar for enthusiasts who appreciate the timeless styling of the 1930s Daimlers, but require more durability and economy and practicality for everyday driving.” (end of quote).
