This is the craziest Mercedes collection ever

I just found this channel. I heard the guy sold his companies to Nestle and made something like a billion dollars. Not sure about this but this is what someone wrote in another forum.

As a huge old Merc fan I gotta appreciate what this guy is doing. He loves rare old Mercs and now that he has money... well.. he buys them. If I understood correctly the guy owns 300 Mercedes-Benzes. Nothing is for sale. Some really, really rare AMG, Koenig, Brabus and Carlson Benzes.

He buys cars every day. Absolutely nuts. But I love it.

B, I’m a BMW enthusiast. The 507 is magnificent.

That being said, doesn’t it look a lot like a TR-6?

Chronologically, a TR6 might look like a 507 - the TR6 was 10+ yrs later.

Interesting comparison my friend, is it the singular headlight or rear quarter panel or something else that strikes the resemblance to the 507?

I mean they’re not exact by any means. They just look like they could be cousins to me, if that makes any sense. Lol, even more so if you compare to a TR-4.

As a once owner of a TR6 (and TR3] if I really try squinting………..yes, I can see a remarkable similarity to a 507…….

I watched the video and to be honest I don’t care for most of those models and I love MB! The Koenig Special cars are ugly to me. But to each his own.
