A Rare Opportunity To Own A Great 1970 Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3 That Will Definitively Turn Heads Where Ever You Go For Sale By Owner, And Located In New Mexico Mercedes 6.3 History Some of historys truly great automobiles have been born from engineers working off the clock. Building experimental projects far from the prying eyes of company brass and the meddling of the accounting department. Especially within large companies, radical ideas will surely be nixed if merely presented on paper. One such engineer was Erich Waxenberger of Mercedes-Benz. In the late 1960s Herr Waxenberger came up with the simple but elegant idea of the ultimate factory super sedan. Starting with a standard W109 sedan a car that left the factory with nothing bigger than a 3-liter inline-six. Working on his own time he shoehorned in the mighty 6.3 liter all-alloy M100 V8 into the mid-sized saloon. The M100 was designed specifically for the highly exclusive 600 sedan and limousine (The world famous presidential Pullman) but Waxenberger believed that not only could he build a superb sporting saloon using the smaller body he could better utilize the specialized production facility that was building these massive engines. He and his team built a prototype and handed the keys over to Mercedes-Benz factory test driver Rudi Uhlenhaut. The legend is that Uhlenhaut had to stop and open the hood at the first traffic signal to see what on earth Waxenberger had crammed into the 300SEL! Impressed by the enthusiasm from Uhlenhaut the car saw rapid approval by company bosses especially given that the expensive M100 engine could now be sold in another car. The production version of the 300SEL 6.3 featured sophisticated air suspension a four-speed automatic transmission four wheel disc brakes electric windows sunroof opulent wood trim and leather upholstery. Upon its introduction to the public in 1968 it was declared the fastest four-door car in the world and could easily keep pace with American muscle cars of the era. In fact the 300SEL 6.3 could give a contemporary Porsche 911 a serious run for its money. Road & Track magazine declared it merely the greatest sedan in the world. While less expensive than the 600 the 6.3 was still a costly car when new and just 6500 were built between 1968 and 1972. The 6.3 served its purpose as a regular production outlet for the M100 V8 as well as forming the foundation of a legacy of high-performance luxury sedans that Mercedes-Benz still upholds with the AMG line of super saloons. And speaking of AMG the 300SEL 6.3 car is the car that AMG and Mercedes made their wedding vows over. The 300 SEL 6.3 is a car that should never have existed in its day yet went on to become a legend the father of a line of performance sedans that continue through today. This is a cherished example that has had thousands spent to ensure it continues to thrill drivers for years to come.
