The Ferdinand Porsche-designed Mercedes-Benz S Type was introduced in 1927 as a racing version of the 4-liter Type 400 and 6.3-liter Type 630 touring cars. With a 6.8-liter engine set further back in the lowered and shortened chassis, the S-Type was unbeatable in its first race at the Nurburgring. This particular car has some period racing history; it was driven by German ace Hans Stuck. This car has a luxurious yet sporting one-off body designed and built by the Austrian coach building company Armbruster. When the car first arrived in the United States it was painted in the white German racing colors although the current two-tone red paintwork shows off the cars unusual scalloped door panels to advantage.
