Mercedes-Benz is Selling Prized, Rare Cars From Its Museum
Looking for a classic Mercedes-Benz vehicle that’s so special it has spent much of its life at the German automaker’s own museum?
The German automaker is selling off some of its prized possessions and at prices that may seem extravagant, even by Mercedes-Benz standards. For example, there’s a 1994 E60 AMG with 74,800 miles and three previous owners that the company is asking 189,000 euros for, or about $200,000. Of course, if you are a hardcore Mercedes fan, you would know that the E60 AMG is an extremely rare vehicle with only 45 ever built.
But if that doesn’t garner your attention, then maybe the 1998 CLK-LM seen above will. Used once in pre-qualifying at Le Mans, it features a 600-horsepower V8 engine and an asking price of, well, “by request” or, as Fast and Furious would say, “more than you can afford, pal.”
There’s even something for classic car collectors, like a 1929 Mercedes-Benz 630 Kompressor with a price tag of more than $900,000. Other vehicles currently listed on the site include a 450 SEL 6.9 from 1979, an R 129 500 SL from 1992 and a W 116 280 SE from 1973. It also appears that the German automaker will be adding more vehicles to the website as a few of them have been tagged coming soon.
