A 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Alloy Gullwing
A 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Alloy Gullwing sold for $4.2 million dollars which cost a total of $4.62 million after auction fees were taken into account. This represents a record selling price for the iconic classic car.
The final price heavily exceeded its expected value of between $2,500,000 and $3,000,000, no doubt leaving Gooding & Company and the previous owner more than happy. Mercedes built only 29 units of the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing with an aluminium body.
