Mercedes-Benz has come a long way from their original car designs. But before they became the quintessential name brand of luxury cars, they earned their way to the top with stylish rides. Now, one of the company’s landmark cars is heading to auction. Meet the 1958 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster, which is set to be auctioned off on January 29.

The car uses an innovative space-frame chassis, and it has a fuel-injected engine that’s built for racing. In fact, it was the first car of its kind to have a fuel-injected engine. This drop-top car has a gorgeous chrome paint job and a grey leather interior. The engine is a 2,996cc six-cylinder engine that has been in the car since day one. The car is expected to fetch over $1.25 million, which is a long way from its $11,000 original asking price. [Purchase]
