Michael Jackson Mercedes Benz 500 SEL Up For Auction – The king of pop’s previously owned 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500 SEL has recently been put up for auction in New York.
Michael Jackson who passed away in June this year was the first owner of this Mercedes. He purchased the vehicle with the purpose of only using it on his 2,600 acre, South California Neverland Estate.
The auction will be held at Julien’s Auctions and the president, Darren Julien had this to say, “What’s even more significant is that we have photos of Michael driving the car. “When have you seen Michael Jackson driving a car? He was always chauffeured or driven.”
This Mercedes 500 comes with a 5 litre V8 engine that produces 302bhp and is driven by a 4 speed automatic gearbox.
Jackson later gave his Mercedes-Benz 500 SEL to his aunt for her birthday and she later personalized the Merc’s numberplate to read “TKS # MKL”.
