Say what you will about frontman of Maroon 5 Adam Levine’s music, style, and life choices — but there’s no denying the guy has superb taste in cars. For example, he had the good sense to purchase this immaculate 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing, which is undeniably one of the greatest vehicles ever built.

Featuring its signature welded, tubular-steel, space-frame chassis — which saved weight while actually increasing its strength — this iconic car featured the world’s first fuel-injected engine in any production vehicle. That power plant also gave it the ability to go up to 161 mph, meaning it was both stunningly gorgeous and had the performance to match. This Mercedes-Benz Classic-certified example, besides being in top-tier condition, also comes with its own matched set of luggage, tool roll, and original literature. Unfortunately, if you were interested in getting behind the wheel of this gorgeous automobile, you’re fresh out of luck. It already sold to some lucky so-and-so for $1,155,000.
