'The Russian Roadster'

This one-of-a-kind roadster from Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen factory is unique in being the only factory made 500K Roadster.
It have special louvres, unusual front fenders, cut down sides without doors, capturing the spirit of the great racing cars immortalized by the SSK.
This roadster is believed to have been originally owned by Ukranian film director Viktor Tourjansky who worked for the German motion picture production company UFA (Universum Film-Aktien Gesellschaft).
He cast the car in his 1938 romantic comedy movie "Der Blaufuchs" (the Blue Fox), which starred Zarah Leander (a Swedish singer and actress), Willy Birgel and Paul Hörbiger.
There are indications that this car was also used for racing in its early days.
Following World War II the roadster spent a number of years behind the Soviet Iron Curtain in the former U.S.S.R., from where it became known as the ‘Russian Roadster’ while it was in the ownership of Yuri Telshevsky in Riga during the 1960’s & 70’s.
Changes in the world political climate allowed for its exportation and in 1988 and the car was acquired from the Soviet Union by a French art dealer for Charles Howard of England.
In 2002 the car was exhibited at the Classic Car Club of America Spring Classic event at the Gilmore Museum and was awarded a Premier Crown in addition to the CCCA Senior Badge and Senior Ring Awards previously awarded to the car.  
The ‘Russian Roadster’ Mercedes-Benz was originally part of the Blackhawk Collection in the early 1990’s and has appeared at the Pebble Beach Concours in 1991 and more recently in 2016.
