Mercedes-Benz 600 SWB Limousine

Mercedes-Benz introduced the 600 in 1964, an automobile that a generation later is still an engineering and stylistic masterpiece. Powered by an all-alloy 6.3-liter 300 bhp V8 engine, the 600 propels itself with prodigious acceleration. A comprehensive hydraulic and pneumatic system powers the self-leveling suspension, assists the brakes, helps open the massive doors, and smoothly and silently operates the windows, trunk, seats and sunroof. With characteristic attention to detail, each Mercedes-Benz 600 was to all intents and purposes custom-built.

This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in March of 2010 at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, Florida.

300 hp, 6,329 cc single overhead cam V8 engine, four-speed automatic, independent suspension with shocks and leaf springs, four-wheel power-assisted disc brakes. Wheelbase: 126"
