The Mercedes-Benz 600 was introduced in September 1963 at the Frankfurt Auto Show. This car was designed without compromise or regard for cost. Design criteria included unmatched comfort and impeccable safety; room for seven people; a superb ride and handling; fully adjustable seats; unparalleled climate control, and quiet operation. Requirements were met with a variety of technologies, including an all-new, fuel-injected V8 engine, air suspension, and an intricate hydraulic system that powered everything from seats to the fuel-filler door. A marvel in its time, today this car is menacingly complex to maintain and service.

Featuring the first production V8 ever offered by Mercedes-Benz, this 300 horsepower 6.3-liter M100 engine powered the 600 from 0-60 in less than ten seconds with a seventeen-second standing quarter mile at 80 miles per hour. This is notable as this car, in its largest form, would be over 20 feet long and weigh nearly 6,000 pounds. Everything about the 600 was bigger, better, and more unique than anything offered at the time. The hand-built cars were offered for eighteen years, with just 2,418 units made. They were the first choice of Royalty around the world.

This example is one of only 60 LWB models imported to the United States and one of 12 with the factory sunroof. It is finished in MB 920 NauticBlue with MB 265 Parchment interior and Rosewood trim. Only six of those were in dark blue, and this is the only one with parchment leather interior, validation of the car's exclusivity. After sitting for twelve years, the current owner had it driven from New York to Tennessee for sympathetic restoration. It has only 12,000 original miles.

The car has a rear factory sunroof, original factory 'special feature' flag staffs with original spare and factory tool kit. Amazingly it only has 12,000 original miles. Initially used for several years at Mercedes-Benz United States headquarters in New Jersey.
