Little and Large

1964 Mercedes-Benz 600 originally owned by a classier forerunner to James Stunt for sale

 

Danish travel entrepreneur Simon Spies (1921 – 1984) was the founder of the charter airline Spies Rejser and its airway company Conair of Scandinavia but what he was best known for was his eccentric manner. When going to the theatre, Spies, an open user of drugs, would buy three seats – one for himself, one for his cane and one for his dog – and, at his home, he employed what he termed morgenbolledamer (morning f**k ladies or morning bun ladies) – using the pun that “bolle” means both “f**k” and “bun” in Danish. Two Mercedes-Benz 600s – the choice car of dictators and despots – were naturally chosen as his favoured mode of transport and now one is for sale with a guide price of £93,000 to £108,000 ($135,000 to $157,000 or €120,000 to €140,000).

Little and Large – Simon Spies loved his Mercedes-Benz 600s so much that he nicknamed then “Lille Frede” and “Lange Frede”

 

The car to be offered by Silverstone Auctions at their forthcoming Classic Race Aarhus sale in Denmark on 29th May 2016 is the first of the two 600s owned by Spies. He named it “Lille Frede” on the basis he considered it small and acquired it whilst he waited for a larger Pullman that he named “Lange Frede”. He reportedly always travelled with both cars to be able to change in the event of a puncture and, when asked about how many vehicles he owned, amusingly replied: “Should I count the Volvos?”

 

James Stunt, a man famed for making a fool of himself on the streets of London with his far less classy convoy of Rolls-Royces and Lamborghinis, should up his game. This chubby chump jolly well ought to put in a bid.
