With Drive it Day quickly approaching Barons Auctions has acquired several beautiful cars from the Sultan of Brunei. However, the two highlights of the fleet are a 1964 Mercedes-Benz 230 SL Pagoda and a 1973 V12 Jaguar E-Type. Both vehicles were impeccably cared for, the 1964 Mercedes-Benz has only acquired 8,500 miles since 1988 and is expected to go for a pretty penny, between $94,080-$112,896 to be exact.

The gorgeous 1964 Mercedes-Benz 230 SL Pagoda was one of 19,831 made between 1964 and 1967, however far less are on the road today. The 230 SL Pagoda was powered by an inline-six making only 150 hp and 145 lb-ft of torque. Still, the car’s looks far outweigh the power delivery.

The 1973 V12 Jaguar E-Type packs a little more punch with a 5.3-liter V12 pumping out 272 hp and hitting 60 mph in under seven seconds. The E-Type is projected to go between $75,264 and $94,080.

If both of these vehicles are out of your price range, the Spring Classic at Sandown Park will have plenty of more affordable options.
