No. 8 1963 600 Pullman
This car was the extravagance sedan for 2 decades, and yet less than 3,000 of them were ever built. The Pullman was characterized with hydraulically activated moon roof, windows, trunk, and doors in 1963. It also exhibited the loudest horn ever installed on a production vehicle. The Pullman was the predecessor to the Maybach sedans we see now atop the Mercedes lineup, and it is still an icon to this day. In the year 2001with this flagship model derived from the S-Class, the Stuttgart-based automobile brand is continuing a tradition of manufacturing prestige limousines which dates back over 70 years. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class Pullman can easily be distinguished from the long-wheelbase version of the S-Class by virtue of a wheelbase which has been extended by another full meter.

The 1983-1988 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3-16 was a somewhat unexpected edition of Mercedes’ entry-level W201 compact sedan — a “factory hot rod” to counter the sportiest small BMWs and to win some business back from aftermarket concerns that had been cashing in by turning ordinary Mercedes into high-performance “sports sedans.”
No. 5 1937 540 K Special
The 540 K was known with the name “Special” for the reason why to name it after the word “Special” lies in its date of production. A car having 180 horsepower and a supercharged engine in the 1930s, it needed to be incredibly special. The 540 Kompressor Special was just that car, and placed the benchmark for the horsepower race of the first half of the 20th century. The Special Roadster, with its gigantic framework and sweeping scallop-edged fenders, attributed a haughtily long hood with a small windscreen and a very fixed cabin. There was an elegant, flowing, pointed tail and a price tag that was uniformly tremendous as the car.
No. 4 2010 E63 AMG
The 2010 E63 AMG is the most successful and perfect all purpose sedans in the world ever built. The car is every bit your typical E-Class Mercedes to 90% of spectator, but those that are automotively prone will notice the 20-inch AMG rims, flared body kit and a growl that will wake the neighbors each morning.

The 300 SL Gullwing is the car that changed it all for Mercedes-Benz in the U.S. Prior to the introduction of this model, Americans believed Mercedes to be the maker of classic, high-quality, but boring cars. The Gullwing made people look at MB as the maker of luxury sports cars for the rich and beautiful, despite only 1,400 Gullwings being produced. On top of its trademark upward opening doors, the 300 SL was the first-ever gasoline-powered car equipped with fuel injection directly into the combustion chamber. The Gullwing was recently ranked the No.5 sports car of all time, and it is nothing short of an icon.
No. 2 1970 C111

The C111-II accelerated from a standstill to 62 mph in a highly respectable 4.8 seconds. The four-rotor engine was equipped with a single ignition and direction injection.
No. 1 1955 300 SLR Racer
