A Mercedes built for Hitler's right hand man is expected to fetch £12m making it the most valuable car in the world. The Mercedes 600K Special Roadster is an upgraded 'Blue Goose' model of which only 26 were ever made and the last one sold fetched £4m.
British classic car specialist Nick Szkiler has without doubt made the find of anyone's lifetime - unearthing a 1942 Mercedes Benz V12 600K once owned by Nazi Hermann Goerring from a Russian lock-up.
Nick Szkiler, who owns the Classic & Sportscar Centre, at West Knapton, near Malton, was told the Mercedes Benz 600K Special Roadster, one of only 26 ever made, had been rotting away in a garage.
Nick Szkiler, whose parents still live in Marsh, will now handle the sale of the Mercedes 600K Special Roadster in Russia following a tip off.
Nick Szkiler came across the motor, believed to have belonged to Hitler's second-in-command Hermann Goering, rusting away on a Russian farm.
