    In the 1950s, the Mercedes 300SL was about as close to a supercar as you could get. Achingly beautiful, incredibly fast, and technologically advanced, the 300SL is one of the most sought-after collector cars in the world. But the most desirable cars are the 29 alloy-bodied competition cars. Built for racing, they featured a lighter body, plexiglass windows, revised suspension, and bigger brakes.
    This car was given to the original owner as a college graduation present in 1955. He drove it sparingly until the early í70s when a mechanical issue forced it into a garage. Nearly 40 years later, it was unearthed and sold for an undisclosed sum to a collector, who restored it to as-new condition. While we donít know how much they paid, Concours-level restored cars are worth over $6 million today.
