Modified by Mercedes-Benz Classic, ’75 600 Pullman keeps old machine heads that are equipped with Maybach 57, 62 goodies.
There are many classic Mercedes machines to be admired, such as the 450 SEL, the 300 SL “Gullwing” and the 190E. However, we can’t leave out the greatest Benz of them all, the 600. The large luxury sedan, popular with celebrities, diplomats and dictators alike, was a technological marvel like no other. Hydraulic doors, windows and trunk, air suspension, a big 6.3 liter V8 for everything … if you had any of these you would be a god of gold.
The 600 was also the forerunner of the Maybach Line, recently revived as a sub-brand of Mercedes. According to Motor AuthoritySomebody brought the two together into a beautiful package, one for sale in the North Holland town of Almaar.
In the white 1975 600 Pullman is a lot of Maybach 57 and 62. The previous owner commissioned Mercedes-Benz Classic in 2007 to equip the classic with the highest level of ultra-luxury, loudly Autoblog. It took seven years and $ 3.2 million in 2020 to complete, but the result is well worth the price.
The owner kept the 600s 6.3-liter V8 and four-speed automatic as well as the steering wheel, but that’s all there is mechanically. The interior received an automatic air conditioning system, the steering wheel was fully adjustable and the dimming panoramic sunroof came straight from Maybach’s parts bin.
The back is still the place where the magic is for the 600 Pullman. Passengers seated in the front can watch the markets with a pop-up television behind the rear passengers. And if that gets boring, you can paste a copy of Wall street on DVD in DVD player.
Everyone can also enjoy the adjustable seating, tell the driver via the intercom system where and when they need to be, drink a bottle of champagne, cool in the mini fridge and listen to gentle jazz over the Becker stereo system. And above all, they can be dazzled by the Swarovski diamonds in the roof frame.
