SWB Limousine
At the 1963 Frankfurt International Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz introduced an extraordinary limousine. As a successor to the legendary pre-war 540K Grosser, the W100 '600' was acclaimed to be the world's finest automobile.

The mission to create this ultimate statement of automotive style and engineering began on June 4th of 1955 when Dr. Fritz Nallinger, Rudolf Uhlenhaut, Joseph Muller and Karl Wilfert were given an unlimited budget and free rein to create the best vehicle that could be built. The timeless styling was done by Paul Bracq and Bruno Sacco.

Every single part of the 600 was newly designed and built. A new 6.3 liter V-8 engine supplied the power. Everything was operated by a hydraulic system including the windows, seats, door locks, trunk lid, sunroof, disc brakes and the doors.

There were several variants available; a standard wheelbase 4 door sedan, a long wheelbase 4 or 6 door Pullman, and a Landaulet which had a convertible top for the rear passengers.

The prestigious 600 remained in production from 1963 to 1981 with a total of 2677 vehicles produced. There were 2169 SWB Limousines, 428 Pullmans and 59 Landaulets. This car has had only two owners and only 28,100 miles of careful use.
