Restored Mercedes-Benz Limo for US$2.75 million.
Did you go to your prom in a limo? Pop culture throws it in our faces, but we're not sure it actually happens. What we're sure of is that this classic, restored Mercedes-Benz Pullman isn't exactly a high school party car, as it's being sold for $2.7 million by Mechatronik.
The Mercedes-Benz W100 600 was unveiled to the world by Daimler-Benz at the Frankfurt IAA Motor Show in 1963 and was instantly considered a hallmark of the German brand's high-end design excellence. Inspired by the artistic moment, this limo was designed for the most demanding and exclusive consumers, being a car equipped with special technical characteristics, unique until then.
In addition to showing innovations, this Benz was aesthetically impressive because of the metallic gray exterior paint and the timeless blue leather interior. This striking design was rescued by Mercedes-Benz Classic in 2007, which began a long and detailed restoration to the requests of a very picky client. To return to its original factory condition, the limo was completely dismantled, had the body rebuilt, and was repainted.
The interior has been modernized with elements from the Maybach series, keeping the leather seats but adding a glass roof, touchscreen systems, and more up-to-date safety equipment. Of course, they couldn't leave out a champagne cooler, after all, it's a car worth almost US$3 million.
