Based on a shortened and lowered Type 630 chsasis, the Mercedes-Benz Type SS Super Sports was the supercar of its day. The SS was built between 1928 and 1933 and was incredibly agile with a powerful Rootes-type supercharger and a low center of gravity due to the revised suspension. The engine is a 7-liter, 6-cylinder unit giving 160 horsepower - or 200 bhp with the supercharger engaged.

This car was presented at the Paris Auto Show in 1930. There it caught the eye of the Maharaja of Jammu and Kashmir, Sir Hari Singh, who bought it off the stand and, after converting it to right-hand drive, took it back to India with him. His family kept the Mercedes until 1972.
