A rare 1936 Mercedes-Benz 540K Special Roadster is set to go up for grabs at an auction by Gooding & Company, and many believe this rare car has what it takes to break the auction record for vehicles when it goes up for bidding at Pebble Beach, right after the Concours d’Elegance show. Some say that the vehicle could easily fetch $10 million, but there are also some who think it can go high enough to exceed the current vehicle auction price record of $16.4 million, which achieved in 2011 for a 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa car that was used by the manufacturer’s team to compete at Le Mans….
