‘Dusted since 1928’ Mercedes auctioned at $4.5 millionNew Delhi: No wonders that even articles from garbage bin or storehouse can turn someone millionaire as a rare 1928 Mercedes which spend 60 years gathering dust in a garage has fetched almost £3 million at auction, reports Daily Mail.

The S-Type Mercedes-Benz - the supercar of its generation that easily reached over 100mph - still runs perfectly despite being stuck in a 'time warp', and not driven since 1952.

One of the world's fastest vehicles when it rolled off the production line in 1928, the Mercedes sparked a bidding war at the Bonhams' Goodwood Revival sale.

According to Daily Mail, the car has been owned by the same family since the 1920s and went to a mystery buyer for a staggering £2,801,500 - nearly double the £1.5 million it had been tipped by Bonhams pre-sale.
