8. Mercedes Benz SL 300
1954 saw the launch of the Mercedes-Benz 300SL at the International Motor Sports Show in New York and it was the biggest milestone in the history of the marque. Originally conceived in 1952 as a means of restoring the company’s pre-war reputation as a major force in Grand Prix racing, the luxurious and graceful ‘Gull Wing’ coupé transformed the image of Mercedes-Benz, especially in the American market.
Production of the Gullwing coupé lasted only until 1957, by which time some 1,400 had been produced – a tiny number for such an influential car. It was replaced by the 300SL Roadster, a convertible version with essentially the same body shape but conventional doors and a hard-top option. Both models had 6-cylinder 3-litre engines and were aimed primarily at the North American market. Daimler-Benz ceased production of the Roadster in 1963.
This car accident is one of the most expensive car accident and comes in at #8. Unfortunately, there is more than one accident involving this car. You’re looking at a car that was once worth nearly a million dollars. The owner thought it would be a good idea to race on the streets of Mexico. No, not a road race, but the annual “La Carrera Panamericana” race which is limited to classic cars produced before 1965. Cost of accident: $750,000
