1928 Mercedes-Benz 630 Tourer

Created under the visionary guidance of Ferdinand Porsche, the magnificent 630 K, equipped with a supercharged six-cylinder engine, marked a significant milestone as the inaugural fully original model introduced after the merger of Daimler and Benz in 1926, giving rise to the revered marque we now know as Mercedes-Benz. In the realm of competitive racing, few automobiles from that era could surpass the awe-inspiring Typ K when finely tuned for ultimate performance, capable of reaching speeds of up to 100 mph.

Its commanding presence, coupled with the exquisite craftsmanship and luxurious features of its road-worthy design, elevated this vehicle to a league of its own. Even the factory-built models, such as the exemplary specimen presented here, boasted a captivating allure and an unmatched aesthetic appeal.
