1955 Mercedes-Benz Gullwing

International auction house RM Sothebys will be offering up one of the most iconic cars in automotive history at its Arizona sale next week. This stunning 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Alloy Gullwing is one of the most coveted examples in existence, and is one of few to retain its numbers-matching 3.0-liter NSL engine and original alloy body. The car featured here is the 13th of the 24 Alloy Gullwings produced in 1955, it was fitted with all the requisite lightweight equipment and finished in Silver Grey Metallic over a blue interior. With a 3-liter NSL inline-six making 215 horsepower, its originality and exquisite condition, this 300 SL would be the crown jewel in any collection. It is expected to go for a cool $7,000,000 - $9,000,000.
