An extraordinary model with an extraordinary story to tell. In the 1960’s, a US industrialist of German descent ordered two 600’s from Mercedes-Benz, one with a short wheelbase and another with a long wheelbase and a Pullman body. He had both of them finished with a white exterior and a cream-colored interior. The legend goes that he expected both cars to return to Germany someday and find a new owner together. As a result of this widespread legend, the limousines have become known as “White Swans”.
The Mercedes-Benz 600, also known as the W100, was a state-as-art vehicle crafted by the Daimler-Benz during the 1960’s and 1970’s. This stylish vehicle was used worldwide for and by the upper echelons. It served as an epitome of perfection, high-end technology, comfort, exclusivity and uniqueness. The Pullman was and is still the largest passenger car in the post-war era.
In addition to state-sponsored use, international celebrities in politics, business, aristocracy and show business also chose to own and ride in a Mercedes-Benz 600 proudly. The “Big Mercedes” debuted at the Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA) in Frankfurt in September 1963. Several editions were offered, including Pullman Limousine, Pullman Sedan and Pullman Landaulet.
The four-door sedan is almost two meters wide and 5.54 meters long, whereas the six-door Pullman Saloon has the stately length of 6.24 meters. The third version is an open-top Pullman Landaulet. It features a fixed roof over the driver/chauffeur in the front and a convertible folding roof in the back of the passenger compartment. Two Landaulet versions were available, one with a long rear hood and the other with a short one.
In the rear of the classic Pullman, two rows of seats were arranged. In the long six-door version, a middle row of folding seats was selectable. It was intended for customers traveling with staff or bodyguards.
The vehicles were powered by a V8 injection engine with a displacement of 6.3 liters and an output of 250 hp. Thus, the 2.6-ton limousine was capable of a top speed of up to 205 km/h. In its prime time, the 600 Pullman was the fastest production sedan in the world.
The comfort of the vehicles was enhanced by air suspension, a comprehensive hydraulic servo system, an electrically adjustable heating and ventilation system, air conditioning, hydraulically adjustable seats, hydraulic windows and sunroofs. As for the interior decorations, the customer could choose between different precious-wood finishes and the finest velour or leather for interior coverage. There was also a bar in the rear with a fridge, car phone and retractable partition.
With this luxury car, Daimler-Benz created a resounding buzz among the international elite, and for decades, the 600 Pullman was a benchmark that stood in a class of its own.
