Mercedes bought 135 million euros, world record car auction

A 1955 Mercedes, one of only two examples in the world, was bought in early May for 135 million euros, a world record for a car sold at auction, RM Sotheby’s announced.

The 1955 Mercedes Coupé 300 SLR Uhlenhaut was sold on May 5 at a confidential auction held at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany, in cooperation between auctioneer subsidiary Sotheby’s and the German automaker.

Priced at 135 million euros, the purchase of this Mercedes tripled the previous 2018 record for a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, also sold by the same classic car auction house for over $48 million. .
