Introduced in 1963, the Mercedes-Benz 600, internally designated the W100, had few peers apart from the new Rolls-Royce Phantom V. It featured a new 6,332-cc overhead-cam V-8, a dry-sump design with Bosch mechanical fuel injection that developed 245 hp, as well as air suspension for a wonderful ‘boulevard ride’ and a high-pressure hydraulic system that provided every power assist imaginable. Smooth, quiet, and comfortable, it was a magnificent machine in every way.
For customers for whom the standard 126-in.-wheelbase 600 sedan was not imposing enough, there was the long-wheelbase, 153.5-in. Pullman model, available with either four or six doors and a ‘conversation pit’-style rear compartment. Just 487 Pullmans were produced through 1981, although only a few were built, all to individual special order, following 1972. Many were delivered new to various rulers and heads of state worldwide, and some of them remain, well-maintained and still highly impressive, in government fleets to this day.
