THE FASTEST SERIAL PRODUCTION SEDAN IN THE WORLD
The Mercedes-Benz W109 300 SEL 6.3 was introduced in Geneva in March 1968. The engineers at Mercedes implanted the powerful M100 V8 engine with 6.3 liters from the 600 limousine and thereby created the fastest serial production four-door sedan in the world.
The 184 kW (250 PS) and 500 Nm torque had such an easy job handling the relatively light-weight automobile (1,830 kg), that even the Porsche 911 – hitherto the undisputed King of German highways – was left baffled.
Our vehicle from 1970 has a complete frame-off restoration: without minding the costs, we Europeanized the imported car from Philadelphia as part of the restoration job and restored it to its original factory condition. The extremely rare color combination of beige metallic grey with coffee brown leather was given an extraordinary intensity by applying nine layers of lacquer.
This perfect 6.3 edition – with comprehensive number of features – still represents a real value asset when considering net return rates (i. e. after costs for maintenance and repair).
