Adolf Hitler's Mercedes-Benz is going up for auction!

Adolf Hitler's Mercedes-Benz is going up for auction!
The Mercedes 770K's standard equipment is impressive, too, particularly the supercharged 7.7-liter inline-8 under the hood, which makes 230 hp.

In most cases when you hear about rare cars being sold with famous past owners, you assume that those previous owners are movie stars, singers, or racing drivers, but not dictators like Adolf Hitler. But that's exactly who owned the 1939 Mercedes-Benz 770K Grosser Open Tourer, and you can be listed on the owner history, too, since the vehicle will be auctioned on January 17. 10 percent of the sale price will be used for education about the Holocaust and preventing another one.

 

 

The car was commissioned by SS officer and chauffeur for Hitler Erich Kempka. It was used as a guest car for visiting dignitaries, and for big Nazi parades. It was used in those parades between 1939 and 1941. Considering the car would be used to transport Hitler, it was outfitted with additional protection. Armor plating was fitted to the sides and bottom of the vehicle. The windshield is bullet resistant, and an armored panel can be raised up at the back behind the seats if a greater threat was determined. The Mercedes 770K's standard equipment is impressive, too, particularly the supercharged 7.7-liter inline-8 under the hood, which makes 230 hp. It's coupled to a five-speed manual transmission. The attention to detail on the engine is impressive, as evidenced by the machine turned distributor housings.

 

 

Owning this car would certainly be a conflicting experience. On the one hand, it's a beautiful and impressive vehicle, and after the car was captured by Allied forces, an American G.I. wrote in a letter that it was great to drive. But on the other hand, it was owned and used by one of history's greatest monsters.
