A Mercedes-Benz 600 that was purchased by Elvis Presley in 1970 will be auctioned on December 6 at Bonhams in Weybridge, England.

One of only a handful of cars that Presley registered in his name, the Mercedes-Benz has attracted a pre-sale estimate of £150,000 – 200,000.

Presley kept the car, which was one of two 600 Mercedes he owned, for two years before giving it to a friend, James Leroy Robertson.

It was purchased by the vendor in 2005 from Robertson Motors Memphis, and exported to the UK.
