a most remarkable collection of classic cars, and 48 of them went to auction in Sept 2015, and resulted in 24 million dollars

the residence was once the summer house of the king of Denmark

this 1914 boat tail model by Schebera Coachbuilders is just one of the cars in the 24 million dollar collection of Mr. Henrik Frederiksen

Wilhlem Maybach started his career as an apprentice to Gottlieb Daimler. He is credited with several Mercedes innovations still in use, the radiator among them.

Maybach outlived Daimler and went on to build V12 dirigible engines for Count Zeppelin and, with his son, formed an autombile company after WWI.

In the 1930s Maybach, like Mercedes and Packard, offered more affordable models. The Maybach SW-38 was one of these cars. Its Spohn design gave true meaning to the term “fitted luggage”
