“Modern motoring industry would not exist without Gottlieb Daimler and Karl Benz. These German pioneers not only improved and popularised the invention of internal combustion engine but also set the foundation for automobile as a commercial product. Since 1901 their company bears the name of the French enterpreneur’s daughter, Mercedes Jellinek.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, Mercedes-Benz has been building their brand by offering durable, long-lasting vehicles. In parallel, the company has always put significant efforts into motorsports, such as the famous Silver Arrow racers. After World War II Mercedes continued their tradition of building prestigious saloons, widely used by the heads of state. At the same time the company did not forget about supercars, such as the unmistakeable 300 SL Gullwing with direct fuel injection. Some will argue that the best years for Mercedes-Benz came with the introduction of the famous W123 model (1976-1983) and its successor the W124 (1984-1997). Our collection featurues the S, SL, and G Class vehicles that also come from this era.”

Mercedes-Benz R129

The R129 SL made its debut more than 25 years ago. Its timeless looks were created by Italian designer Bruno Sacco. This luxury roadster was developed on a shortened floor pan of the W124 model and was produced for as many as 13 years. The majority of those cars are still in use today…

The R129 SL made its debut more than 25 years ago. Its timeless looks were created by Italian designer Bruno Sacco. This luxury roadster was developed on a shortened floor pan of the W124 model and was produced for as many as 13 years. The majority of those cars are still in use today.

Although the range included 6 cylinder versions, the real nature of the SL is truly revealed only in those cars equipped with V8 and V12 engines. One of the most valued versions is the early 500 SL with an original two tone paint job and an indestructible 5.0 V8 DOHC engine, whereas the unique SL 600 V12 version stands out with its ADS hydraulic suspension, which allows for the change of ground clearance. Each SL includes an automatic folding roof, as well as a hardtop, thanks to which the car can be used all year round.

Rich (for the 90s) equipment with leather upholstery and automatic air-conditioning are obvious in this class of vehicles..

Regardless of the version, the SL astonishes with the quality of the materials used in the cabin. Time does not seem to be taking any greater toll on them. This car comes from Mercedes-Benz’s best era, when vehicles with a star on their hood were built to last an eternity.

The SL R129 series was produced in 213 thousand units.

Mercedes-Benz W124

The W124 is associated by many with being a boring taxi cab. But that’s only half the truth. The W124 range had not only diesel sedans, but also attractive coupe and convertible versions with powerful inline-six gasoline engines. They gave plenty of driving joy and made a pleasant sound. But clients wanted something with even more power.
What was the result when Mercedes Benz, wanting to build a powerful sedan, turned to Porsche for help? The best car in the W124 model range: a 5 litre E500, one of the best known “sleeper” cars. From the outside its abilities are given away mainly by the considerably widened fenders, but hidden underneath are hundreds of differences compared to a “normal” W124. The engine mounts and suspension have been lowered, the battery transferred to the trunk of the car, whereas the chassis gained some parts from the SL R129 model. The gearbox and differential also came from the SL, while the gas tank was enlarged to 90 litres. The car was practically hand-made: the production process of one unit took as long as 18 days, during which the car made its way from the Mercedes factory to Porsche’s assembly plant and back several times. Such a method guaranteed the maintaining of the highest quality of workmanship, but also sky-rocketed the price: the 500 E was much more expensive than even a BMW M5. It cost as much as two standard 300 E sedans.

In 1993, three years after its debut, the car underwent a restyling: the 500 E became the E class and the name was changed to E 500. The changes were made mainly to the exterior of the car. It has been 25 years since the 500 E’s debut and the car is becoming more and more sought after with each year. Only 10,500 units were made.

There was also a more “economic” version made – the 400 E with a smaller 4.2 V8 engine and 279 HP. The exterior looked the same as an average diesel, but hit 100 km/h just 1,1 sec slower than the 500 E. Up until 1992 this version was offered only in the US and Japan. Thanks to a significantly more friendly price than the 500 E it sold quite well, with 22 thousand units finding buyers.

It’s hard to believe that the R107 model remained in Mercedes-Benz’s sale offer for 18 years – from 1972 to 1989, becoming this brand’s longest produced personal car in history (apart from the off-road/utility G class).

During all those years of production only slight improvements were introduced, which consisted mainly of enriching the equipment with such elements as an ABS or a driver’s airbag. There were several reasons for the lasting popularity of this car: the first of them were extremely high safety standards.

The R107 was one of the first mass produced cars to have crumple zones in the front and rear, a strengthened floor pan and a power train which would slide below the passenger’s cabin in case of a collision. Second, the car had the ideal size: it was neither too large for Europeans, nor too small for Americans. And finally: thanks to the high-tech rear suspension with diagonally mounted control arms it handled much better than its predecessor, the “Pagoda”, equipped with a swing rear axle. The engines used in this vehicle were 6 and 8 cylinder units with a displacement of 2.8 to 5.6 litres. The greatest popularity was enjoyed by the most powerful version, the 560 SL: almost 50 thousands were made, which constituted for about 1/5 of the 237 thousand total produced units. What’s more, it was never offered in Europe.

It is said that you don’t change a winning team: Mercedes has been living by this rule in the case of the G-class for 36 years. During production many innovations have been implemented in regard to the drivetrain, engines and equipment, but the classic, raw body with flat windows has almost not changed at all. Responsible for the design and production of the G class since 1979 is the Austrian company of Steyr-Puch. Initially this vehicle was meant for military purposes, but it turned out that individual clients also purchased it rather readily. It was due to this individual client demand that the focus later turned to enriching the equipment and adding more powerful engine varieties to the initial line-up.

The G-class shows its true nature beyond the tarmac. The angular body rests on a solid body frame and many cars have as many as three differential locks: a central, rear and front – like a real military vehicle. The first of these won’t only be found in early produced cars with a manually operated four wheel drive (W460). Since 1990 the range includes a W463 version with a permanent all wheel drive.

The number of engine and body versions of the G-class can make one’s head spin. The customers could choose from among a 3-door version (short and long), a 5-door, a convertible, a pick-up and numerous special conversions. The engine line-up starts with a 2 litre diesel and ends with a gas-powered monstrosity of a 6.0 V12 biturbo.

Mercedes-Benz W126

Thanks to the success of the previous S class model (the W116) Mercedes knew that it was on the right path presenting a new, top-of-the-line sedan in their range in 1981 – the W126. Drawing conclusions from the oil crises, special emphasis was put on fuel economy – even in the large 8 cylinder engines. Other priorities included safety and handling. Mercedes did not want to go over the top with equipping the car in electrical gadgets, deciding that luxury lay in the quality of the used materials, NVH or performance. However the regular equipment did include automatic air conditioning and an air bag, while the ABS was optional until 1986 (after which it became a standard feature). Offered at an additional price was a self-leveling system in the rear axle or – a huge rarity – a hydraulic suspension on both axles. Initially available were the following versions: 280, 380, 500 and 300 SD (diesel).

The year 1981 marks the unveiling of a coupe version (SEC), which did not have a direct predecessor. It was created as an alternative for those who wanted to buy the S class, but had no desire to drive with a chauffeur. Despite a very high price, the car was an immediate hit with celebrities, businessmen and… gangsters.

In terms of technology the SEC based on a floor pan from the S class, shorter by 85 mm. In order to give the car some visual lightness, it received a hardtop body, which lacks a B-pillar. This move required a creative way of mounting the seatbelts, which were equipped with electric belt extenders. The car’s equipment included not only optional air bags, but also an automatic rear differential lock.

The engine line-up was limited to gasoline V8 units.

In 1985 a thorough restyling of the entire W126 series was made, which included, among others, an optional passenger air bag and completely new engines: 6-cylinder 2.6 and 3.0, 4.2 V8 and the most expensive 560 SEL model with a 5,6 litre V8 and 272-300 HP. Two years prior to the end of production, in 1989, traction control was added to the list of options.
Clients most readily chose the 6 cylinder models, especially the 280 SE/SEL and the 300 SE/SEL. Almost 240 thousand of them were produced.

With a record number of almost 900 thousand units made, the W126 remains the most popular S class today in the brand’s history. Up until 1991 also 74 thousand units of the SEC version were produced, with the 500 version constituting for almost half of them.

In the second half of the 80s the S class in the W126 body still looked prestigious, but no longer modern. Additionally Mercedes suffered a blow from its main rival from Munich, which in 1988 presented the 12-cylinder BMW 750i. What was needed was an answer in the shape of an uncompromisingly best car in the world. Works on the design began in 1985 and took 6 years. When the ready-for-production car was presented in Geneva (March 1991) it caused utter shock. On one hand it made one’s head spin with the amount of luxury equipment. On the other – it caused controversy with its massive, bulky look. Europeans did not like this style, but it was very much loved by clients in the US, Japan and… Russia.

The top of the line 600 SEL version had to be larger and more powerful than the BMW in every aspect. And it was. Six litres of capacity and initially over 400 HP (later 394 HP due to ecological reasons) made it the king of the highway. “Smaller” versions also had nothing to be ashamed of: the 500 SEL gained a fantastic opinion with its legendary durable 5.0 V8 engine. The equipment included double glass windows in the rear, pneumatic door close assist, as well as gadgets sought after today which did not stand the test of time: retractable poles indicating the end of the car (later replaced by reversing sensors) and power rear view mirror.

The W140 remained in Mercedes-Benz’s sale offer for seven years. Today it has a youngtimer status and its prices are visibly rising – and even despite the fact that as many as 432 thousand units were produced.

Cosworth: this company is associated by many mainly with Ford. There are few that remember that Cosworth also constructed an engine for the Mercedes-Benz 190. Basing on the 4 cylinder unit from the M102, which achieved 136 HP from 2.3 litres, a 2.3-16 engine was created. The name came from the 16-valve DOHC cylinder head. The pistons were also different (lighter), whereas the shortblock was left unchanged. Cosworth’s cylinder heads were produced in Great Britain and sent to Germany, where the final assembly was made. The power of this high RPM motor amounted to 185 HP.

This superb construction found its place under the hood of the “Baby-Benz” model, which the 190 W201 was nicknamed. The project was implemented in order to create a car with which Mercedes-Benz could win races. The racing successes did not come to be, but the W201 range got a long awaited sports model, the 2.3-16.

Due to the attractive ratio of price to power, the 190 2.3-16 enjoyed good sales. In 1985 alone more than 8,000 cars were sold – 3,000 more than what the racing homologation regulations required.

Unimog is an acronym for Universal Motor Gerät – a multi-purpose driving machine. The idea was simple: post-war Germany needed a combination of a truck and a tractor, with a greater emphasis on the latter function. Even the Unimog’s wheel track of 127 cm was calculated in such a way that two rows of potatoes could fit between them. Actually the Unimog was not created by Mercedes, but by one genius designer – Albert Friedrich. The production of the vehicle in 1946 was undertaken by Erhard und Söhne, later Boehringer and in 1951 it was taken over by Daimler-Benz.

With time it turned out that the Unimog could be used for absolutely everything. For shunting railway wagons, for hard terrain work, for clearing of snow and even for dragging airplanes – no task was too big for the Unimog. The basis of the Unimog’s construction is a solid body frame. The usability is further enlarged by a three lock all wheel drive and front and rear PTO, whereas a large clearance was achieved thanks to portal axles. The power was also successively increased: the first original model had only 25 HP. In 1963 Mercedes introduced a modernized model with a 5.7 engine and two years later a direct injection was added, which enhanced the power from 65 to 85, later even to 110 HP. That was the 406 series, considered today the most classical and most sought after version of the Unimog. It is exactly this vehicle that is part of our collection.

The Unimog is still produced in an almost unchanged version – for 68 years! And it still finds buyers, because its usage is absolutely timeless. Fashions change and the Unimog is still needed. And will be needed… always.

“Pagoda” – a nickname by which the W113 is most often referred to. Supposedly due to the hardtop’s resemblance to traditional Asian buildings. This car has is more than 50 years old (it debuted in 1963) and replaced the legendary “Gullwing” in the Mercedes-Benz range, as well as a smaller model, the 190 SL. The light, delicate outline of the body was created by the distinguished French designer Paul Bracq. The chassis was a shortened version of the large W111 Coupe floor pan and was renowned for its rigidity and high level of safety (for the 60s) with crumple zones.

A six cylinder 2.3 engine was equipped with the latest technology achievement: a multipoint, mechanical fuel injection. At that time this solution was not present even in the most expensive vehicles. An optional feature was power steering – another unusual element in those times. Although the “Pagoda” was much slower in tests than for example the Jaguar E-Type, it convinced buyers with the quality of the workmanship, reliability and crisp handling. From the very beginning the car was a great seller and clients had to wait several months for their order. The most rarely chosen version was the expensive 5 speed ZF gearbox.

The first serious changes were made in 1967, with the introduction of the 2.5 engine and four wheel disc brakes. Not long after came the most powerful and most popular version of the “Pagoda” – the 280 SL. Sales started to decline not sooner than the early 70s. Up until 1971 the W113 was made in 48.9 thousand units.

AMG: these three letters always guaranteed an unforgettable experience from handling a Mercedes-Benz. Since the 90s the so far independent AMG tuning company entered a cooperation with the star-sign brand and from then on the top of the line Mercedes-Benz models with the most powerful engines bore this three-lettered symbol.

One of the first “modern”, official AMG models was the C36 which based on the C-class W202. Available only as a sedan with an automatic gearbox, this model took advantage of the intensively altered 3.2 engine, assembled by hand by an AMG employee, whose name was later placed on a plaque in the car. The displacement was increased to 3.6 litres by boring out the cylinders. Other enhancements included forged pistons and a racing cylinder head with special camshafts and sodium cooled valves. The result: 280 HP and 0-100 km/h in 6.7 seconds. During 1993-1997 only 5,200 units were made, out of which about 1,000 were exported to the USA.
