1991 Mercedes 300ce Koenig Special for Ken Griffey Jr. Location: New Britain, Connecticut VIN: WDBEA51D9MB299059 Salvage Odometer: 30,000 miles Price: $50,000 US Dollars Click Here for Ad This is Ken Griffey Jr’s 1991 Mercedes 300CE Koenig Special. It was sold at Copart as a salvage vehicle on Nov 25th, 2015. It was originally painted black with black interior. It suffered side damage and was totaled by the insurance company. The seller bought it and returned it to its former glory but now in purple. Now asking $50,000. This car has been for sale for a long time now. It needs a specific type of buyer that is a Koenig enthusiast. The color in my opinion isnt going to help the sale either.
Spotted: Mercedez Benz SL65 I was driving the other day and came across this. I had to stop to take a quick picture because an rarely see any of the Mercedes 65 cars on the road. Normally, I wouldnt look twice at a 500SL, SL55, or SL600 but this was something special. These are known to be very capable and reliable cars and in the used car market they are becoming more affordable for a convertible hardtop roadster. I didnt know too much about these other than they were the flagship model of the SL Class. They are special but look almost identical to the lower models that it is easy to not pay attention. Mercedes has been known to set the benchmark of luxury and performance by featuring all their best features/ options/ and most powerful engines into their flag ship cars. I decided to do some research on the SL65 and it is truly an impressive machine. The entry level car was the SL500 which had a starting price of $91,300 USD. The SL65 was priced at a whopping $182,100 USD (base price) in 2005! That puts these cars in supercar territory. SL500: $91,300 Base SL55: $123,300 Base SL600: $129,400 Base SL65: $182,100 Base What is interesting is that the SL600 has a 0-60 of 3.6 seconds(0.2 faster) but the more powerful SL65 has a 0-60 time of 3.8 seconds. It turns out the SL65 doesnt have enough traction to handle the horsepower adequately. Perhaps a set of
I’m a product of the 1980’s. I have always loved the AMG Hammers. This video by Chris Harris gives an amazing commentary on what these cars were like to drive. The car is this video is a wide body version and a 6.0 Liter. It is believed that only 12 AMG 6.0 Wide body coupes were built. They produced 375 horsepower and were beautiful and sophisticated coupes. One was for sale in the Netherlands for 149,500 Euros or $164,000 US Dollars. These cars have more than doubled in value over the last 5 years. These cars have always been very elusive.
