One of the oldest surviving Mercedes is going up for auction and it could fetch as much as £900,000.

According to msn.com, the 1905 Mercedes Simplex 28/32 Phaeton is 108 years old and dates back to the Edwardian era. For its time, it was a luxury way to get around and the simplistic design helped influence many modern cars.

The car currently belongs to Mr Arturo Keller, who owns a famous Mercedes-Benz collection in Napa, California. It's the first time the Phaeton will be offered at auction and it is in top condition and roadworthy, so whoever the lucky new owner is will be able to take it out for a spin at their leisure.

Coys of Kensington will be selling the car at its True Greats Auction and its estimated to sell for between £750,000 to £900,000.

The Phaeton is not the only classic car that will make an appearance at the auction. The 71st Jaguar E-Type to be created back in 1961 will also be there and it's expected to fetch around £90,000 to £110,000. A 1951 Cooper MK V owned by the only driver to have won four British Hill Climb Championship titles in a row will also be sold at the auction, reports motorward.com.
