This is the World’s most expensive car and how much It sold for might shock you. It’s a 1955 Mercedes Benz 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coup. It’s also extremely rare. It was named after its chief engineer Rudolf Uhlenhaut. It has a top speed of about 180mph (290 km/h). Also the German manufacturer built just two prototypes at the time. Now Mercedes Benz still owns one of the Uhlenhaut coupes and keeps it on display at a museum. But the one that broke the world record for the most expensive car was sold at a ‘Secret Auction’ in 5th-May of 2022 for $142,769,250.

The car has special gullwing doors and shiny exhaust pipes, but we don’t know who the new owner is. We do know that the buyer loves cars and isn’t just investing. Insuring such a valuable car needs a special policy that costs over $100,000 every year. The new owner must be careful to keep it safe and protected to keep its value.
