Because it’s one in every of the sport’s 20 million-cr unicorns, in the form of a 1952 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL. Mercedes only produced ten examples of this legendary race automobile — which won each the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Carrera Panamericana that yr — and spawned the famous gull-winged 300SL in 1954.

There are smaller rewards of 1 million for being inside 5%, and 250,000cr for Bronze at a ten% discount — although the X2019 event sets Bronze at +20% and awards 500,000cr.
