At the Paris Fall Salon 1951 Mercedes-Benz presented the model 300 S from the W 188 series as convertible, roadster and coupé and car lovers were thrilled! The convertible version of the 300 S was considered one of the most beautiful cars and it was Mercedes-Benz’s way to continue the tradition of the world famous compressor cars. With a maximum speed of 175 km/h and an acceleration from 0 – 100 km/h in 15 seconds, this model left even the Porsche 356 1300 Super in the dust.
Our Mercedes-Benz 300 S Cabriolet, one of only 203 cars of this model, left the factory on December 22, 1953 and was moved on the road to the Daimler-Benz dealership in Kassel/Germany. Its first owner was Fa. Ilse, a furniture manufacturer in Uslar/Germany. This classic is in excellent condition, has never left Germany and is currently with its 5th owner.
