Description:

The Mercedes 300S was produced from 1951 through 1958 and is one of the most graceful and classic creations of the post-World War II era. The style was both classic and modern and built to high standards. They were constructed from fine materials using the latest in technology and achieving minimal weight with a high degree of strength.The 300 was built on a traditional body-on-frame construction as many other marque''s, including most of the Mercedes-Benz line, had switched to unit-body construction. The body-on-frame construction was ideal for maintaining a high level of quality for vehicles produced in limited quantities. The front end was suspended in place through the use of an independent suspension with A-arms and coil springs. The rear was the tried-and-true swing axle with coil springs.Under the bonnet was a 2996-cc six-cylinder engine with Bosch mechanical fuel injection that produced 175 horsepower. Considering the modest wheelbase size and the overall low weight of the vehicle, the 175 horsepower was more than enough to carry these custom-built vehicles at highway speeds with little effort. The car was fast, luxurious, safe, and comfortable.From November of 1951 through March of 1962, there were 11,430 examples of the Mercedes 300 constructed. Most were built atop of a 120-inch wheelbase and with four-door configuration. Just over 700 were convertible sedans.The 300 had been introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Mercedes-Benz selected the Paris Auto Show to introduce the next iteration of the 300-Series, the 300S. This was a much sportier version that rode on a shortened, 114.2-inch, wheelbase and built in 2-door open and closed configuration. The engine was a multi-carbureted unit that produced just over 160 SAE horsepower.The Mercedes-Benz 300S was a very fast automobile that still retained luxury, comfort, and style. Built in very limited quantities, it was an exclusive automobile.Production of the 300S lasted from 1952 through April of 1958 with a total of 760 examples being constructed.The final iteration of the 300-Series was the 300SC, which made its appearance at the 1955 Paris Auto Show. It was given a detuned version of the 300SL''s Bosch mechanical fuel-injected engine and a new ''low-pivot'' swing axle rear suspension.Offered here is an extremely rare and desirable top of the range Mercedes 300S Roadster, one of only 141 built throughout the model''s four year run. When new, these cars were the very ultimate of all the models offered by Mercedes-Benz and at the time of their introduction their list price exceeded that of the 300SL Roadster and Gullwing.This beautiful Left hand drive example has been the subject of an older restoration which included a full mechanical overhaul. Now offered for sale after long term ownership the car is available for viewing in our Kew showroom.PriceĀ£345,000
