If you are into classics and have a money tree, then this is for you. BusinessWeek has compiled a list of cars that will be auctioned at ‘Christie's Exceptional Motor Cars’. The most expensive of them all is the 1928 Mercedes-Benz Torpedo Roadster, which is expected to sell for between $3 million and $4 million.
Only 124 Typ S models were built by Mercedes-Benz in 1928. This one was ordered by the wife of Charles Levine, who never returned to pay for the car after it was delivered to the Mercedes-Benz showroom in New York. The car sat in the showroom for months until Frederick Henry Bedford Jr. purchased it in 1929. It has stayed in the family and was restored in 1982.
