Elvis, who boasts nearly 200 vehicles, rarely held on to his bikes and cars for long. The King of “Rock and Roll” gifted the Mercedes 600 to his longtime friend Jimmy Velvet in the mid 1970s.

After Presley’s death, Jimmy Velvet kept the Mercedes-Benz 600 and displayed it in his Elvis Presley Museum.
