The gullwing Mercedes-Benz 300SL is definitely the car that will always be written in automotive history (read more when you type 300SL in the search box). Out of the 1400 cars produced none are parted by her owners and if did, they fetched few crores.
One car that was in possession for almost 20 years was that of a businessman from Venezuela who later sold it to Friedrich Karl Flick, the Austrian billionaire (former shareholder of Daimler-Benz) who sent this car to AMG (performance car division of Mercedes) to get it modified to suit his taste. He wanted this car to run faster than a Porsche and so the engineers at AMG sat down to work on it.
Under the bonnet they fitted a 4.5 litre V8 engine that gave a power output of 280 hp. With more modifications to her exterior such as black front grille as well as the interior, this car nicknamed "Flick’s Mercedes-Benz 300SL AMG" became the most expensive Mercedes-Benz car in the mid-1970s as it cost the billionaire quite a lot of money.
