Muhammad Ali's Blinged Out Mercedes-Benz 220S

Posted on June 6, 2016

The late Muhammad Ali was not a man who lived a quiet life, and a car of his was certainly a reflection of that. Ali once drove — and got driven around in, when he felt like it — a 1959 Mercedes-Benz 220S encrusted with hundreds of precious jewels and gold accents from bumper to bumper.

Fox News reports the car, the “Golden Angel Wing,” has more than 270 jewels in all, including diamonds. Its accents are a modest 23 karat, and gold adorns the headlamp assembly, grill, bumper, as well as all of the knobs and switches. It’s a four-speed manual with six cylinders under the hood, and the auction listing from 2014 lists Ali as owning it for about two years in the 1980s.
