EASY ORDER INFO HERE

After the war, the first Chancellor of the new Federal Republic of Germany, Konrad Adenauer, was presented with the first Mercedes Benz 300c off the line. He sent it back because it had an ash tray. After that car was replaced, the 300 series became the official motor vehicle of the Adenauer administration, and spearheaded Mercedesí revival as a manufacturer of luxury automobiles.

Adenauer is said to have been particularly fond of the 300-series because they protected the chancellor's head while driving. Had the nation's most important man chosen the cabriolet version he would have had to tie his hat to his head, because 107 mph this Limo is capable of can have an unsettling effect on your headgear!
