Auction Block: 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing

While Enzo Ferrari famously preferred the Jaguar E-Type, we don’t think it’s outside of the realm of possibility to say that the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing might very well be the most beautiful car of all time. And it’s very easy to see why, especially when you gaze upon an immaculate example, like this one from 1955 that’s headed to the auction block.

Having gone through a comprehensive restoration from 1992-1993, this absurdly well-kept super coupe benefitted from consistent and responsible ownership — including a 40-year stretch during which it was held by a single company. In fact, it still boasts the license plate issued to it back in 1979, meaning it might be the last one in the USA with original black plates. Done up in iconic DB-180 silver grey with an updated black leather upholstered interior, this is one of the rarest and most handsome examples of perhaps the most impactful vehicle in Mercedes-Benz’s rich history. And it can be yours if you’ve got between $1,014,000 and $1,352,000 to spend.

Purchase: $1,014,000+
