1956 Mercedes-Benz 300 SC - sold for $550,000
A predecessor to the modern S-Class Coupe, this was, erm, an S-Class coupe of its day (that day being the mid ‘50s), long before the top dollar Merc was called ‘S'. It's one of just 98 SCs built, boasts single ownership for 30 years, features a 3.0-litre straight-six underneath producing a heady 175bhp, and remains a proper Benz.
