Mercedes-Benz 600. 1963–81 (prod. 2,677). 4-door saloon, 4- and 6-door LWB limousine, 4- and 6-door landaulet. F/R, 6330 cm³ (V8 OHC). Largest Mercedes offered at the time, meant to be an example of the ultimate in German engineering. Hydraulic power for many features, including opening boot and automatic doors. Adjustable air suspension. Customers included the Pope as well as numerous dictators (Mao Tse-Tung, Idi Amin, Nicolae Ceauşescu, Kim Il-Sung). Not directly replaced, though 450SEL 6,9 did its best; Maybach 57 and 62 probably the closest to a direct successor.

Manufacturing location: Stuttgart, Germany

Marque: Mercedes-Benz | Successor: Mercedes-Benz S-Klasse (W126)
