One needed to be both rich and quick on the bidding to become the owner of the world’s first production Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. Long Island car dealer Juliana Terian’s winning bid of $2.1 million came just two minutes into the auction at Christie’s in New York on Dec. 18. Bidding started at $500,000 and shot past $1 million in 65 seconds. Proceeds from the auction of the silver, 617-hp supercar go to the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation that promotes youth sports programs as a way to solve world problems. Oh, in case you’re wondering, the SLR stickers at an estimated $450,000, and the next three years’ allotment for the U.S. market (600 cars) is already sold out. AutoWeek says 1.2 million in story headline, but also says it got to a million in 65 seconds and bidding stopped after 2 mins at 2.1 million. So looks like a misprint in the stories headline. Either way that a lot, to say you're first on the block.
