One of Göring's Mercedes Special Roadsters found in Russia

When rare and classic cars have a high value historial indeed sometimes can be sold and the price is unreasonable. Just as with a Mercedes 540K Special Roadster is believed to have been used by Hermann Göring, one of high-ranking Nazi officers who is very close to Adolf Hitler.

As far we knew, Göring had one with bullet-proof glass and bomb-resistant armour, which was shipped to the US after the war and restored. But.......

As quotes from The Sun on Tuesday, January 12, 2010, when Nick Szkiler heard about an armoured classic sports car rusting away on a Russian farm, he was immediately approached and found the shell of an almost identical 1942 cabriolet Mercedes. 

He believed to have belonged to Hitler’s second-in-command Hermann Göring, especially the car's original color was Göring's favourite aviation blue could still be seen.

Nick has been asked to find a buyer. He said, "There’s little doubt that this was also Göring’s. It would take at least a seven-figure sum to recondition it, then it’d be worth £12 million." 
Can you imagine the £12 million or approx US. $18.321 million. Wow... That's a very expensive for a car that was found on a farm in Russia. But, for some rich classic car collectors that numbers is considered appropriate. Moreover, besides having a high historical value, the Mercedes 540K Special Roadster is built as many as 26 units. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | THE SUN]
