A car fit for a king... <br />
<br />
This classic Mercedes-Benz that was used to chauffeur royalty in the post-war years has emerged at auction. <br />

Hussein of Jordan was king for almost half a century, guiding the Middle Eastern country through the Cold War and four decades of Arab–Israeli conflict. <br />
<br />
He purchased this 1953 Mercedes-Benz 300 S Coupe as his personal vehicle. <br />

The late Jordanian was known to be a automobile enthusiast and considered legendary British F1 driver, Stirling Moss, a close friend.
