The Mercedes-Benz 600, introduced in September 1964, continued the tradition of the pre-war Grosser 770K which had been so popular with the highest echelons of the Nazi party: the 600 was an exclusive motor car built without compromise for royalty, heads of state, pop stars and mere tycoons who could afford the ultimate. Like its predecessor, the 600 was the last word in grandeur and opulence, and no creature comfort was omitted.

With a 6.3-litre fuel injected V8 engine producing 300bhp at the wheels, the 600 was capable of over 120mph and 0-60mph in just 9.5 seconds, not bad for a car weighing some 7,0001bs!

There was a limited slip differential, servo steering and calliper brakes with vacuum servo at both ends.

Other amenities included hydraulically operated windows, sunroof, glass partition, boot lit, horizontal/vertical movement and backrest angles of seats, and full electrically controlled air conditioning. As not even the Rolls-Royce Phantom could compete with such an array of features, it is hardly surprising that the 600 cost a whopping DM 56,500 at the time of its launch, this figure having risen to DM144,100 by the time production ceased in 1981.

This short chassis Mercedes-Benz 600 was registered to the local Mercedes-Benz concessionaires of Kassel in Germany and comes from a German collection. We are informed by the vendor that the car received a restoration documented at over € 40.000 in recent years, including new brake callipers to the rear. 0529 is finished in an appropriate shade of elegant dark blue (332 G) with its original matching leather interior and period wireless. The car is described in good overall condition and offered at a sensible reserve. Important to note is that the hammer price will include German VAT at 19 %, which could be reclaimed upon evidenced export into a country outside the EU.


Dieser ,, kurze ,, Mercedes 600 hatte in den letzten Jahren eine Zulassung bei der Daimler Benz AG und stammt aus der Auflösung einer Oldtimer Ausstellung. Wie uns der Einlieferer weiter informiert, erhielt der Wagen in den letzten Jahren eine dokumentierte Restaurierung, für welche über € 40.000,– aufgewendet wurde, sowie kürzlich neue

hintere Bremszangen. 0529 präsentiert sich in elegantem dunkel – blau mit ebensolchem Original Leder – Interieur und einem Radio. Der Wage wird als durchweg in gutem Zustand beschrieben und günstig angeboten. Wichtig und erwähnenswert is außerdem, dass der Zuschlagpreis die deutsche MwSt. in Höhe von 19 % enthält ( ausweisbar ), welche bei nachgewiesener Ausfuhr in Länder außerhalb der EU auf Antrag erstattbar ist.
