A unicorn in the collector car world just went under the hammer, and sold for a record breaking, astounding amount. Mercedes-Benz Group has confirmed it has sold from its private collection a 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR 'Uhlenhaut Coupé' for a record-breaking $143 million (135 million euros). The previous record auction amount paid for a car was $70 million for a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO in 2018.
Mercedes-Benz has said it will drop some of its cheaper models and focus on the more profitable luxury end of the market.
