From S-Class sedans to G-Class Maybachs, classic cabriolets, and rare sports coupes, a Mercedes-Benz is among the most expensive car brands on the market.
In 2013, Mercedes was recognized as the most valuable motor car sold at auction — even though its price of about $29,650,095 was topped in 2014 by the $38-million Ferrari 250 GTO, Mercedes remains on the list of the five biggest auction sales. And the brand performs equally well on the open market.
The 2009 SLR MacLaren Stirling Moss marketed via JamesEidtion in 2020 with the $3-million price tag, was one of the highest-priced supercars for sale, with Ferrari LaFerrari and the Pagani Huayra roadster as its closest competitors. The legendary Mercedes SL 300 also ranks alongside the highest-priced collectible classic cars, such as the 1966 Ferrari 275 GT and the 1983 Ferrari Formula One.
Let’s take a look at the top 15 most expensive Mercedes-Benz cars available for sale right now.

The Mercedes 600 was very well received by the public; the limousine included the most advanced technology of its time, from air suspension and comfort hydraulics to electrically controlled heating and air conditioning.
