RM Sotheby's sold the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupé for €135 million to a private collector.

A 67-year-old Mercedes-Benz just fetched R2.2 billion (€135 million) at an auction, thereby becoming the world’s most expensive car, by far.

It was the “most remarkable car auction ever”, according to classic car auctioneers RM Sotheby’s.
