Sold for $110,000 at 2018 Gooding & Co. : Amelia Island.
The W100 Mercedes-Benz 600 was the company's flagship from 1963 to 1981. The powerplant employed engine-driven hydraulics for operating multiple systems, including door locks, seats, and windows. They had an adjustable air suspension that provided the ride quality one would expect from a vehicle of this caliber.

Mercedes-Benz built 184 short-wheelbase limousines in 1968, including this example. It is finished in black over tan leather with lots of wood trim. It was once owned by Don Ricardo, the conductor of the NBC Orchestra. It was purchased in 2004 by The Brumos Collection through the Scott Grundfor Company. The odometer currently shows less than 64,000 miles.

The M100 single overhead cam V-8 engine is fitted with a Bosch Mechanical Fuel injection system and delivers 250 horsepower. There is a four-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel disc brakes.
