Mercedes-Benz 220

From Mercedes-Benz Press: The Mercedes-Benz 220 S and its sister models 220 and 220 SE were the world’s first production cars built with the safety body patented by Bela Barenyi. This body is distinguished by energy-absorbing crumple zones at the front and rear and an especially sturdy passenger compartment. The series owes its nickname “tailfin” to the marker ridges at the poles and left of the trunk.
