The Mercedes 600 Pullman finished in Anthracite metallic grey with a tan interior.
A rare and desirable motorcar, exhibiting cutting edge 1960's luxury,engineering and styleThe Mercedes-Benz 600 was a line of ultra-luxury cars produced between 1963 to 1981. A forerunner of the modern Maybach marque, the 600 was the company's flagship and most expensive model.Among the variety of 600 models producedwas the long-wheelbase four-door "Pullman" limousine, with two additional rear-facing seats separated from the driver's compartment by a power divider window. Just 429 of these substantial motor cars were built, including the superb example on offer here.This home-market car was delivered new to the German company Alpine in 1964, presumably to transport important staff and clients, before the company was subject to a take-over by a Japanese firm around 20 years ago. As a company asset, the vehicle then made its way over to Japanwhere it spent many years before being purchased by ourvendor and brought to the UK.Representing state-of-the-art automotive engineering of the era in just about every department, this supremely well-equipped luxury car featured four-speed automatic transmission, all-round disc brakes, power-assisted steering, central locking,separate air conditioning systems for the front and rear compartments, and insulated glass all round.The 600 Pullmans great size, weight, and numerous hydraulically driven amenities required more power than Mercedes' largest engine at that time could produce. A new V8 with more than twice the capacity was developed, the 6.3-litreM100. Featuring single overhead camshafts (SOHC) and Bosch mechanical fuel injection, it developed around 250bhp offeringhighly respectable performance, reaching 60mph in a little under 10 seconds and exceeding 125mph flat out.One of the most notable features of these models is their sophisticated 150-bar (2,176 psi) hydraulic pressure system which operates the multi-way adjustable seating, windows, opening and closing of doors and boot lid, whilst adjustable air suspension delivers variable control, excellent ride quality and sure handling over any road surface.
It is believed that the car has covered over 100,000kms as there is no history to suggest this is a low mileage car.
