Here's How to Score Elvis' 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL

Elvis Presley owned several cars over the years, from a fleet of Cadillacs to a Ferrari Dino and a Rolls-Royce. Those are all in museums or private collections, however, whereas his 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL can actually be yours. 

Barrett-Jackson will be offering the car, which the King bought new and owned until his death in 1977, at its 11th Annual Las Vegas Auction on September 27-29 with no reserve, meaning anything could happen

Painted Alpha Crystal Blue Metallic, the stately 180 hp sedan has in fact been in a museum, John Staluppi Cars of Dreams, on display for the past 40 years, so getting your hands on it would be a major coup. It even comes with a photo of the car in front of Graceland, Elvis' Memphis mansion.
