Go for a drive in the Mercedes-Benz 300SLR ‘Uhlenhaut’ Coupe – Video

The world’s most valuable car.

The Mercedes-Benz 300SLR ‘Uhlenhaut’ Coupe is considered one of the most expensive automobiles in the world and is a truly special car that will likely never be sold. In the 1950s, the 300SLR was considered to be the world’s fastest car and there are quite a few tales that surround its performance that just add to its legendary status.

Simon Kidston, of Kidston SA, was able to get behind the wheel and actually drive the super-rare automobile thanks to the team at Mercedes-Benz Classic and five deep into the history and intricate details of the 300SLR. It’s an eight-cylinder 3.0-liter, 300-horsepower car that is beautiful in almost every way and offers an incredibly unique and inspiring driving experience. It even comes wits its own personal mechanic.

Just watch the video and enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime experience.
