Rare 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Alloy Gullwing sells for $4.62m



Over the weekend Gooding & Company's Scottsdale, Arizona auction sold more than $39 million worth of vehicles, but there was undoubtedly one model which stole the show.

A 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Alloy Gullwing sold for $4.2 million dollars which cost a total of $4.62 million after auction fees were taken into account. This represents a record selling price for the iconic classic car.

The final price heavily exceeded its expected value of between $2,500,000 and $3,000,000, no doubt leaving Gooding & Company and the previous owner more than happy. Mercedes built only 29 units of the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing with an aluminum body.

Another noteworthy model to sell at the auction was a 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider which went for $3,905,000 after auction fees.
