Mercedes Benz Gullwing - Scottsdale Auctions | Hagerty Article


The Scottsdale auctions could have been called “A Tale of Two Gullwings.” At Gooding and Company, an alloy-bodied 300SL Gullwing (one of just 29) sold for $4.6 million. The same weekend, a visually identical steel-bodied car sold for $632,000 at RM. Almost precisely a $4 million spread between Gullwing prices — I can’t think of another example in the collector car world where two such similar cars have as large a disparity in price.
