A classic Mercedes car that belonged to legendary racing driver Sir Stirling Moss has sold for a whopping £190,000.<br />
<br />
The 1966 Mercedes Benz 230SL was a stunning road car specially designed for the British F1 star after he ended his racing career.<br />
<br />
Sir Stirling, who had starred on the track for Mercedes, bought the modified 230SL with a specially-fitted bigger engine and a distinctive opening roof vent in 1966.<br />
<br />
The cabin shape earned the vehicle the nickname the 'Moss Pagoda'.
