Designed by Mercedes to be a high-end luxury vehicle, the reality is that this 600 comes with more equipment than most furnished apartments. Inside the Light Ivory over tan leather boulevard cruiser is a working refrigerator, real wood trim pieces, rear climate control, rear stereo controls, a sunroof, full-power everything, and the original Becker radio with 1990’s car phone – this car is corporate raiding condensed. The 126’ wheelbase is flanked by optional decorative chrome side moldings that beautifully blend into the also optional wheel well arch moldings finished in chrome. Nicely tucked into those wheel wells are chrome wheels adorned with body-color matching covers.

At the time of delivery, it is claimed that output was an ample 250 horsepower and 370 lb-ft of torque. After combustion that motivation is sent to the rear wheels through a buttery 4-speed automatic transmission.

With only 2,190 short-wheelbase 600’s manufactured during their 18-year run, supplies are short, so isn’t it time to live like the other half?
