I'm surprised that Mercedes would part with something as rare and important to their history as a Uhlenhaut Coupe. I wonder what the reasoning was behind that decision. Granted they still have one (they had both cars in their collection) but it's a strange move from a company that reveres its history as much as Mercedes does.

That one's just a demonstrator, they'll get more on the next delivery! I think it's also out of it's warranty period. 😉 Besides, it has no Bluetooth, so I'm out!

Looks like the story said that the buyer agreed not to resell it, so it's not going to be back on the market anytime soon. And where else are they gonna find another one?

This is what it would cost to register it in my county in California. I did find a lucrative loophole that said that the VLF fee is zero if a vehicle is registered as a historic vehicle / horseless carriage. 1955 qualifies for that, so that's an immediate savings of $923,001.  :-)

To be honest, what else can be said? You can expect just so many "Gee, that's a lot of money for a car" comments without becoming repetitive.
