The car was expected to be sold for somewhere around $2,500,000 and $3,000,000, but in the end managed to grab a lot more than that. It shouldn’t come as a surprise taking into consideration that Mercedes-Benz manufactured only 29 units of the aluminum-bodied 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing so we’re dealing with a rare automobile.
