This was way above the estimate of $7.5 million. The buyer's name was not disclosed as he wishes to remain anonymous. (Could it be Jay Leno?) This beats the previous expensive car record when a Ferrari Testarossa prototype was hammered at $16 million a couple years ago.
Great Mercedes Benz
The automobile has fully-independent suspension and a fuel-injected 2.5-liter straight eight engine.
It had been sitting in a warehouse for around 30 years, and has all its original parts.
