The 12 Million Dollar Car

The 12 Million Dollar Car

The 500 series replaces the 380 series in 1934. Customers demand more powerful engines and thus between 1936 and 1937 only 25 of the elegant two-seater are constructed. One of these is purchased by the Prussian Baroness, Gisela Josephine von Krieger, for 28,000 Reichsmarks, which would amount to approximately 115,000 euros today. In 1942 she first moves the luxury car to Switzerland, bringing it into safety from the Nazis. The Hitler regime intends to prevent the Prussian nobility from leaving the country with all of its millions. When she goes to New York a number of years later, her 540 K accompanies her across the Atlantic. The Baroness dies in Europe in 1989. However, the car remains in the United States, stored in a garage in Greenwich, Connecticut. Forgotten for 40 years.
