The World’s Most Expensive Car Costs $140 Million

The secret world of luxury automobile auctions is as thrilling and competitive as the races these old school racing cars used to get into on the pavement. These rich auctioneers are willing to outbid and outflank each other to the tune of tens of millions of dollars in order to snag a piece of automobile history. The highest price rides you could call your own used to be exclusively Ferraris. Though everything recently changed with one sale that threw the whole community on its head. That would be the most expensive car in the world.

So what is the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupe? Why did it sell for over $100 million? Can it fly or something? While it does have cool doors that open upwards, the car’s history is what really gives it its worth. The car is connected to the best about that era of racing and the worst. A horrifying accident in 1955 kept it from ever racing and proving its worth. So it winning the race to become the first 100 mill selling car is a big deal.

These cars are sold at secret auctions you or I don’t get to see. Ones where enormous deals go down all under the cover of anonymity. Your guess is as good as mine when it comes to who actually pulled this buy off. Elon Musk, Tom Hanks, Jay-Z, Jerry Seinfeld? There’s no way to know.

So what’s the deal with the world’s most expensive car? Only one way to find out!
