According to Sotheby's Auction House, the 1955 model Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupe was sold at auction for 135 million euros, breaking the world record.

Thus, this vehicle of Mercedes broke the record of the Ferrari 2018 GTO, which was sold for $ 70 million in 250, and became the "most expensive car in the world".

It was reported that the vehicle was sold to a collector and the proceeds from the sale will be used to create a fund that provides scholarships for young people to do research on environmental science and decarbonisation.

While the buyer agreed to present his vehicle to the public, except for exceptional events, the other model produced at that time will remain under the ownership of Mercedes-Benz and will continue to be exhibited in the museum in Stuttgart.

According to the automotive press, the 2 SLR model, known for its extraordinary lines and butterfly doors, and only two produced, was designed by engineer Rudolf Uhlenhaut on the basis of the W300 R Grand Prix race car, which won two Formula 1 championships.
