Any true legend owned a stylish car, but only the coolest of stars own a Mercedes-Benz. The different cars have their own story from the day they landed in the hands of their buyers until the day of their … gasp … burial; if, of course, that day ever comes.

Presley’s Mercedes 600
Current owner of Elvis’s Mercedes S-Class 600, Eric Smith, feels there’s a living, breathing character in classic cars, according to Guernseys.com. Back then, they were all hand-built and quite rare. In a Mercedes-Benz.TV video, Smith explains the history of the vehicle.
Elvis bought the car new from a Memphis dealer and used it in the early 1970s during his Las Vegas revival special. It was a car he used extensively; not like the other cars he would buy, then give away to his associates when he was tired of them.
