    1955 Mercedes @ US 3 million, the most expensive car ever sold-107064120-d140595-jpg

    Key Points
    • An ultra-rare Mercedes-Benz race car sold for $143 million earlier this month, making it the most expensive car ever sold.
    • The 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupe smashed the previous record for the most expensive car sold at auction by more than $95 million.
    • The sale took place May 5 in a secretive and highly unusual auction at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.

    Most surely purchased by some insanely wealthy billionaire. The car IMHO is one of the most beautiful cars ever designed, after the Ferrari 250 GTO.

    To be quite honest, I used to have two of them when I was quite a bit younger . . . they were also quite a bit smaller.

    Close, but no cigar!
