The best classic cars

Mercedes-Benz 300 S

The Mercedes-Benz Type 300 (chassis codes W186, W188, and W189) were the company’s largest and most-prestigious models throughout the 1950s. Analogous to today’s S-Class, the Type 300 cars were elegant, powerful, exclusive, and expensive. This series was also often called the Adenauer after Konrad Adenauer, Chancellor of Germany at the time. Adenauer used six of these cars during his time as Chancellor.
