1963→1981 Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman Limousine

Back in 1960, three 300s – the model known popularly as the “Adenauer-Mercedes” – were customised and built to Pullman specifications; Mercedes-Benz offered this body variant as a production model for the first time in the 600 model (W 100 series) in 1963. Over the next few years, Pullman versions of the S-Class 109 and 126 series (special production versions) followed, as well as the 140 and 220 series (both standard).

Auction Sales History


1973 Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman Limousine 100.012-12-002236 – sold for €133,400
This particular 600 was ordered new by the King of Senegal and is one of the last of the series, incorporating all the updates. Delivered with the optional sunroof installed, the car was kept by the King of Senegal until 1992 when it passed to Mr Peter Werger in Germany. He kept the Mercedes until 1995 before selling it to Mr Martin Voit in Germany, its owner until 2014. There are various service invoices on file from Mercedes-Benz St Ingbert, Germany relating to Mr Voit’s ownership. The current vendor has spent €22,000 on the car for various works, including an overhaul of the Hydraulics (invoices on file). Mechanically in generally very good condition, having covered only 68,000 kilometres from new, this magnificent 600 Pullman is offered with its original instruction book, German registration papers and the aforementioned invoices.
