Elvis Presley might be associated with Cadillacs in the public’s mind, but the superstar singer had a little-known affinity for German cars. Among his purchases were an ultra-rare BMW 507 roadster and this Mercedes-Benz 600 sedan, regarded as the zenith of Mercedes cars.
The car is expected to go for between $230,000-$310,000 but it wouldn’t be surprising to see it far exceed estimates. It wasn’t that long ago that an unrestored 600 Pullman limo, in unrestored condition, went for $475,000 at auction. With the provenance of this car, and the seemingly excellent condition its in, look for this car to make the pages of a classic car buff book detailing what made it go for such an astronomical price.
