The Mercedes-Benz 630K was the first successful supercharged model made by Mercedes-Benz. The 'K' stands for Kurz ('short chassis'). The engine is almost identical to the successful SSK racing model developed by Ferdinand Porsche when he was employed by Mercedes-Benz.

This 630K was built as a show chassis and was exhibited at the New York International Auto Show in 1925. Directly after the show, the chassis was acquired by Archibald Andrews, a New York nightclub owner, who sent it to Murphy in Pasadena to construct a sporty roadster body. It is believed that the car was later acquired by the Oscar-winning actress Vivien Leigh in the late 1930s. In 1986 the car was discovered in a barn in rather sad but complete condition, and it underwent a full restoration. The car was first shown at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 1991.
