A club member here in Australia recently sold his 1955 (I think) 300SL coupe (gullwing) at auction. It was left-hand-drive, red with black interior, in very good (but not necessarily concours) condition. Bidding went to AUD $485,000 which including buyer's premium and other costs ran to over $530,000 from memory. The Aussie dollar was around 70 cents US at the time.
