The car was sold in a private auction with only a handful of guests in attendance at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart on May 5. The auction was held in partnership with auto auction company RM Sotheby’s. The identity of the new owner of the vehicle has not been released.

According to Hagerty, a company that tracks the value of collectors’ cars, the €135 million price tag makes the 1955 Mercedes-Benz SLR coupe the most expensive car ever sold in human history.

Brian Rabold – vice president of Hagerty said: “The racing cars from the 1930s-1950s of Mercedes are very rare and most are still factory owned, so any that hit the market is highly sought after.”

Before that, the most expensive car in the world ever sold in 2018 was a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO with a price of 70 million USD (about 1,622 billion VND).

The 1955 Mercedes-Benz SLR Uhlenhaut coupe was one of two prototype 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupes. The 67-year-old cars are named after Mercedes’ chief engineer at the time, Rudolf Uhlenhaut, and are said to have a top speed of 186 mph (nearly 300km/h).

Mercedes’ “Gullwing” SLRs – so called because the doors rise like curved wings – are considered some of the most desirable cars in the world. Rare and special re-race versions are valuable.

Basically, the SLR Uhlenhaut Coupe is a convertible version of Mercedes’ famous SLR convertible racing car, powered by a 300-horsepower eight-cylinder engine. The car is expected to better protect the driver in strong winds and bad weather at high speeds, while the convertible will also improve aerodynamics.

Shortly after the development of these cars, Mercedes ceased to be involved in motorsport, so these cars were never used in competitions.

Mercedes said the proceeds from the sale of the 1955 SLR Uhlenhaut coupe will be used by the German automaker to establish the Mercedes-Benz Foundation, a global scholarship fund. In addition, the remaining Uhlenhaut Coupe is still in the collection of the Museum.
