A 1939 Mercedes-Benz 770K Grosser Offener Tourenwagen once owned by Nazi-era German dictator Adolf Hitler is to be put up for auction next month.

Billed as the most historically significant automobile ever offered for public sale, the arrangers, Arizona-based Worldwide Auctioneers, have released 54 pages of documents which they say prove that the "Super Mercedes" was ordered by, built for and used by the Führer during World War Two.

The auction house didn't estimate the potential value of the car, but US broadcaster Fox News cited an anonymous classic car valuation expert as saying it could fetch between $5-7 million (€4.2-5.9 million).
