Classic Car Overview

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys Paris event, 5 February 2020.
  • Offered from the Poster Car Collection
  • One of 428 examples built
  • Displayed for four years at Mercedes-Benz World in the UK
  • Ideal restoration project
  • Documented with service invoices, MOT certificates, and previous registrations


Introduced at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Mercedes-Benz 600 was one of the worlds most advanced automobiles, featuring a hydraulic system that powered nearly everything in the car, including a self-levelling air suspension. It was built in a four-door short wheelbase iteration and two gargantuan long-wheelbase versions featuring either four or six doors.

One of the rarest versions was the 600 Pullman, a limousine that was built in a modest quantity of 428 examples. Rivalled only by Rolls-Royces Phantom V, the Pullman was preferred by numerous potentates and celebrities, including King Hussein of Jordan, Mao Tse-Tung, and Hugh Hefner.

Noted as being sold new to A Quimby of California on 3 July 1973, it is believed that this example remained in the U.S. until 2002, when it was exported the following year to the UK. At that time it was owned by Chris Drake, who lent the car for four years of display to Mercedes-Benz World in the UK. By 2012 the car was sold to a Romanian collector who commissioned the Kienle Automobiltechnik to conduct some freshening on its older restoration. Interestingly, it was upgraded at some point with several modern conveniences, including a roof-mounted flip-down television, satellite navigation, and a minibar. It would make a fascinating restoration project for any collector.
