Looking at it from a different point of view, when one of these six cars gets sold it is bound to make the news. Which is what's going to happen at the upcoming Monterey Car Auction that will take place on 16-17 August, this week.
Chassis number 0003 of the six built will be put on sale by Mecum Auctions, and its price could fetch four figures at the minimum, especially since the car is technically a garage queen, with only 71 driven miles on the clock.
On top of that, the car has been freshly serviced in March 2013 by a team of technicians specially flown in from HWA's headquarters in Germany.
In short, this is a hand-built, hyper-rare, V12, mid-engine roadster from Mercedes-Benz that any modern supercars collector would be more than jolly about owning. You can check out some photos of the model - including the only RHD model in existence, made for the Sultan of Brunei – in the gallery below.
