For real car enthusiasts, there is now a gem for sale. At Bonhams, you can now buy a 2010 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate that Michael Schumacher drove.

From 2010 to 2012, Schumacher drove for Mercedes in Formula 1. The seven-time world champion was forced to retire at the end of 2006 due to his departure from Ferrari but still had the urge to perform. Together with Ross Brawn, he was at the heart of the Mercedes team's later success.

At this time, Michael could no longer afford to continue driving a Ferrari and so he was given a company car. This was the 2010 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate. The car was registered to Mercedes-Benz AG in Schlieren, Switzerland, but in notes to the Swiss Fahrzeugausweis, Michael Schumacher is registered as the driver.

The car remained in the possession of the German until July of 2010, who then traded it in. In total, the odometer is now just under 152,000 kilometers and the car should cost between €50,000 and €100,000. Check out Bonham's website here for more information.
