We imagined it would consider a really long time for a vehicle cost tag to overtake the $70 million Ferrari 250 GTO from 2018 but if rumours are genuine, it is about to be obliterated.
The people over at Hagerty United kingdom claim to have a number of resources stating that Mercedes not too long ago marketed one of the infamous 1956 Mercedes 300 SLR Uhlenhaut coupes.
Just two of these were being built soon after Mercedes exited the racing scene in 1955. They attained the name Uhlenhaut coupe following the head of the automaker’s exam division, Rudolf Uhlenhaut, commenced working with a person as his corporation motor vehicle. In short, it was effectively a road-lawful race motor vehicle.
The pair have remained beneath the treatment of the producer and have been regarded as the most important cars and trucks in the environment.
According to Hagerty, another person managed to encourage Mercedes to element with a person before this month when a pick out quantity of car or truck collectors were being invited to the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart for an occasion.
At this stage, it is not acknowledged if the sale was performed auction-design but it is remaining noted that the auto sold for a staggering $142 million (approx. R2.2 billion). If this is accurate, this doubles the previous file of the Ferrari 250 GTO which is only outrageous.
Rumours abound as to the identification of the consumer, with some suggesting it is a properly-acknowledged determine from Britain’s automotive business and a lengthy-standing collector of professional vehicles.
