The automobile auction market, like basically all other collectible markets, reached new heights earlier this year. In May, a 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR known as the Uhlenhaut Coupe sold for $142 million. The mind-boggling sum didn’t just beat the previous mark—it demolished it by nearly $100 million.

It’s unlikely many expected the silver gull-wing Benz to sell for as much as it did, but cars selling for absurd amounts is nothing new. All you need to do is take a close look at the list of the highest auction results of all time, which Robb Report recently got to do thanks to the valuation experts at Hagerty. The auto auction market has been going crazy for years now. In fact, there are entries in the top 20 that date back almost a decade to 2013—something that can’t be said for, say, sports cards. It seems that no matter what the financial climate is like, if a serious collector sees their dream car hit the block they’re going to spend whatever it takes to make it theirs.

“While record prices have been set more frequently in times of economic prosperity, the very best cars often come to market at unexpected times, and enthusiast collectors often respond accordingly,” John Wiley, Hagerty’s manager of valuation analytics, told Robb Report.
