There are rumors that Mercedes-Benz has sold one of its most valuable cars for just $ 142 million. If true, the price of the Silver Arrow 300 SLR “Uhlenhaut Coupe” will be almost three times the price of the next most expensive car.
Although Mercedes-Benz has not yet confirmed or denied any such sale, Hager’s people are convinced that the sale actually happened after contacting multiple sources. There seems to be someone inside them as well, as they reported that on May 6, 2022, about 10 or less people were invited to attend a private event at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart.
Each of these individuals has met the pre-determined criteria that they will eventually sell the 300SLR to the person who needs the Mercedes. As of this writing, the Mercedes-Benz Museum website actually states that it is closed for an event from May 6 to May 15.

Again, if confirmed, this is by far the most valuable automobile to trade hand. The next most expensive on record is the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, which sold for $ 48,405,000 in 2018. The same year, rumors circulated that another 250 GTOs had been bought for ব্যক্তিগত 70 million in a private sale, but this has not yet been confirmed.
If this is really the Silver Arrow race car that Hager thinks it is, it is undoubtedly one of the longest floor cars in history. All indications are that this car is one of only two hardtop coupes manufactured by Mercedes-Benz. Another reason why it is so valuable is that they do more than just hand-trade.
The specific vehicle in question was brought back into running order in 2010 and even climbed the mountain at the Goodwood Festival of Speed by Sir Jackie Stewart and Mika Hackinen. It was one of the most powerful race cars of its day and laid the foundation for many of the cars we know and love today.
