By the beginning of the 1960s, Mercedes-Benz’s ever-expanding model range was lacking in only one department: a super prestige saloon to rival the Grosser Mercedes of the past. This gap was filled in September 1963 with the appearance at the Frankfurt International Motor Show of the all-new 600. Representing state-of-the-art automotive engineering in just about every department, the supremely well-equipped newcomer featured an overhead-camshaft, fuel-injected, 6.3-litre V8 engine, delivering 250 BHP, air suspension with variable ride control, four-speed automatic transmission, all-round disc brakes, power-assisted steering, central locking and separate air conditioning systems for front and rear compartments.
Only 2,677 were made, of which 2,190 were four-door saloons, 428 were Pullman limousines and 59 were landaulettes. Of the long wheel base Pullman’s only 124 were buit as 6-door limousine with two forward-facing jump-seats at the middle two doors and a rear bench-seat.
The 600’s have a hydraulic pressure system that powers the automobile’s windows, seats, sun-roof, boot lid, and automatically closing doors. Adjustable air suspension provides excellent ride quality and sure handling over any road surface.
This specific car was first delivered to Agam in the Neterlands. It is a unique car, one of only 124 6-door versions of the Pullman that was ever built.
