A 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing coupe owned by pop superstar Adam Levine, front man for Maroon 5, will be auctioned during RM Auction’s sale in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The iconic Gullwing, valued between $1 million and $1.4 million, has been owned and driven by Levine for six years.  Silver over blue leather, the Mercedes is often driven and photographed in and around Los Angeles, according to an RM Auctions news release.

  1. Bob, Adam Levine doesn’t deserve to own a Gullwing. This questionable provenance will probably depress its value unless some dim-witted millennial steps up to buy it.

    • I’m not a follower of Maroon 5 but , if you want to buy a car you should buy and enjoy it , without big mouths ruining the car experience
