We are thrilled to offer an exceedingly rare and important Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman State Landaulet.
The world’s most famous and important people were driven in a Mercedes-Benz 600, but for those who were not only important but, who also ruled the world, the top choice of the 600 was the Mercedes 600 Pullman State Landaulet.
This example is one of just fifty-nine 600 Landaulets ever produced by Mercedes-Benz and was delivered when new to its first and only owner, Gnassingbé Eyadéma, President of Togo.
Mercedes 600 Production began in 1964 and continued through to 1981. During this time, Mercedes produced only 2,677 units, comprising 2,190 Grosser Saloons, 304 Pullmans, 124 6-door Pullmans, but there were only 59 Mercedes 600 Pullman State Landaulets ever produced making them one of the very rarest of all special order Mercedes models.
Representing state-of-the-art automotive engineering in just about every department, the supremely well-equipped newcomer featured an overhead-camshaft, fuel-injected, 6.3-litre V8 engine – Mercedes’ first – air suspension with variable ride control, four-speed automatic transmission, all-round disc brakes, power-assisted steering, central locking and separate air conditioning systems for front and rear compartments. Its pampered occupants enjoyed the advantages conferred by multi-way adjustable seating powered by a sophisticated system of hydraulics that also operated the windows and assisted in opening/closing the doors and boot lid.
Celebrity owners of the Mercedes-Benz 600 have included Elvis Presley, John Lennon, George Harrison, Jack Nicholson, Coco Chanel, Hugh Hefner, Ronnie Wood, Aristotle Onassis and Rowan Atkinson. The roll call of dictator owners is similarly impressive: Nicolae Ceauşescu, Marshal Tito, Fidel Castro, Pol Pot, Enver Hoxha, Idi Amin, Saddam Hussein, Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il all being represented.
The only Pop star owner of a 600 State Landaulet though we believe was non other than David Bowie. A Super Car for a Super Star!
Our superb 600 Pullman Landaulet has completed a remarkable restoration and is finished in it’s original Raven Black coachwork with a magnificent Red leather interior which has just been completely re-trimmed to the highest possible Concours standard.
With only 24,900 miles from new and in breathtaking condition it presents a rare chance for a devoted Mercedes-Benz enthusiast to acquire what is truly the ultimate 600, and it is perhaps the most important “car of state” of the modern era.
