A veteran Mercedes car that spent 63 years languishing in a derelict barn has sold for an impressive £280,000.<br />
<br />
The 1933 Mercedes 370 S Mannheim Sport Cabriolet is considered an extremely rare vehicle with the famous car manufacturer only ever producing 195 of them.<br />
<br />
This particular example is believed to have been delivered new to a Herr Frederic Boelech in a British-occupied area of Berlin during the second world war. <br />
<br />
After being stored in the war-stricken capital, the car was later acquired by a serving member of the RAF and imported to the UK via Folkestone, Kent in 1955.
