Sedan
Chassis #: 100/012-12-001938
The Mercedes-Benz 600, designed by Bruno Sacco and Paul Bracq, was introduced to international acclaim in September 1963. It was immediately recognized as one of the finest built and most advanced engineered cars in the world. Only 2,677 examples were built between 1963 and 1981, the last examples built for the U.S. market in 1972. They were custom, hand built cars for heads of state, celebrities and the rich and famous including the Pope, 3 of the 4 Beatles, Fidel Castro, Pablo Escobar, Elvis Presley and a host of famous and infamous. The 6.3-liter engine propelled the 5,700 pound car to a top speed of 120 mph. It's vastly complex hydraulic system powered the sunroof, doors, seats, trunk, windows and various other systems.

With only 32,000 original miles this example is one of the last 600s built for the U.S. market. It is a rare one-of-one in moss green with red leather interior custom built for a wealthy U.S. Alabama industrialist. It was described by Mercedes-Benz factory insiders as its 'Die Weihnachts-Automobil' or 'Christmas Car.' It has undergone a lengthy restoration.
