The W111 generation of Mercedes-Benz vehicles was first introduced in 1959 and featured numerous variations until its production ended in 1971. The two-door models were particularly sought after as the last hand-built cars by Mercedes-Benz in the great German craftsmanship tradition.
The interiors of these cars exuded luxury with their genuine solid hardwood trim, tasteful brightwork, and thick leather upholstery, while their ride quality and handling constantly reminded drivers of their superb engineering.
Predictably, these cars quickly became favorites among international socialites and celebrities who could often be spotted cruising around the world’s most luxurious destinations.
