As one of the first post-war Mercedes-Benz models, the 220 was introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show in April 1951. The 220 featured the return of the inline 6-cylinder engine, which displaced 2.2 liters (hence the 220 nomenclature) and provided an ample 80 horsepower. Styling was similar to the pre-war 170 though the headlamps were now fully enclosed by the front fenders. The modern front end was longer and interior furnishings were more lavish. The overhead camshaft inline-6 was mated to a column shifted synchronized 4-speed manual transmission which did provide (and still does today) a lively driving experience. Top speed was nearly 90 miles an hour and it could reach 60 miles per hour in 20 seconds from a full stop. The 220 was offered in two different cabriolet options, the sporty Cabriolet A and the stylish Cabriolet B which offered comfortable seating for four. With undeniable style and ample performance, the 220 marked Mercedes-Benz’s return to form after World War II by offering luxury for the whole family while providing the level of performance that resonates in the spirit of Mercedes-Benz today – the best or nothing.
