1937 Mercedes-Benz 540K Special Roadster - $8.2 million Most Expensive Car

Less than a week ago, a 1978 Mercedes Benz 280E industrial unit assembly car sold at Dutch auction for $36,499. This sophisticated representation was build by means of superior feature. The exclusive mud flaps beside by means of the contrasting hood color add to the attention in the car. That price, but, has nothing on the Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren Roadster.

This GT supercar has a price tag of $495,000. It is the fastest automatic-transmission car in the globe, by means of a crest speed of 206+. It can reach 60 miles per hour in a stunning 3.8 seconds. This convertible model has a particularly commanding engine, which offers one-of-a-kind styling beside by means of outstanding performance. However, even at nearly half a million dollars, this Mercedes Benz does not have everything on the 1937 Mercedes Benz 540K unique Roadster.

This Roadster is reported to be the world’s finest instance of a 5.4 litre sports car. In 2007 it sold at Battersea Park in London for $8.2 million. Another oldie, a 1929 Mercedes Benz 38/250 SSK, that is one of only 33 built, was sold at auction in 2004 at Sussex. The gavel came losing at the auction when the price reached $7.4 million.

It is difficult to believe, despite its beauty and accomplishment, that every car could attain the price of the 1954-55 Mercedes Benz W196. This car won the Grand Prix in 1954 and 1955. Mercedes generously donated this car to the countrywide Motor Museum in Beaulieu in the 1980s. They, in turn, sold it to raise finances to finance a museum renovation. The Mercedes then sold in 1990 to a French capitalist for $24 million!
