A 1939 luxury Mercedes limousine used to carry Adolf Hitler around Germany will be auctioned in the U.S. state of Arizona next month, one of only four such models ever built.Powered by a 7.7-liter supercharged engine capable of exceeding 100 mph (160 kph), the Mercedes-Benz 770K Grosser, known to the world as the "Super Mercedes," was a potent propaganda symbol of the Third Reich which the Fuhrer rode standing in the front seat.The car, which carried the number plate 1A 148461, was used to ferry Hitler on his victory parade through Berlin following the stunning defeat of France, and for a state visit by Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini.U.S. media reports say it could sell for millions of dollars.
