Rarer than dinosaur fossils in your backyard, the Mercedes-Benz 600 coupe was only built in three units, two having been made by Mercedes and one by a private venture. Similarly looking to its larger siblings, the coupe had little details to set it apart except its shorter wheelbase and single set of doors. One of the few cosmetic changes was the introduction of side-vents in the same manner as those found on the 300 SL. Sharing the original limousine’s underpinnings, the Coupe had the same intricate hydraulic system and a performance adjustable air suspension for increased ride comfort. As in the case of today’s modern vehicles fitted with hydraulic suspension, the car sat low in stationary mode only to elevate when the engine was turned on.
