Top Gear Audition (08). Mercedes 600
An audition tape made for the Australian Top Gear TV series. Unsuccessful
but enjoyable to put together and I hope fans of old Mercedes will enjoy!
Mercedes-Benz S-Class 600 Series Celebration
Mercedes-Benz 600 series - Luciano Pavarotti's 1972 600, Hugh Hefner's 1972
600 Pullman, Pope Paul VI's 1965 600 Pullman Landaulet, and the 1972 600
SWB Sedan .........
Apart from the Pope and governments, famous owners of the 600 include
celebrities such as Coco Chanel, Hugh Hefner, Elizabeth Taylor, John
Lennon, George Harrison, Jay Kay, Aristotle Onassis, Jack Nicholson, Simon
Spies, Ron Wood, Bob Jane, Frank Packer, Elvis Presley, Rowan Atkinson, and
Jeremy Clarkson, Communist leaders include Nicolae Ceauşescu, Josip
Broz-Tito, Fidel Castro, Pol Pot, Enver Hoxha, Leonid Brezhnev, Kim
Il-sung, Kim Jong-Il also owns a landaulet (both seen in the 65th
anniversary parade in Pyongyang on October 10, 2010) and religious leader
Guru Maharaj Ji. African revolutionaries Idi Amin Dada, Jomo Kenyatta and
the former Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos had four 600s including a
Landaulet, a 1981 bulletproof and a six-door version.
The 600 was so heavy that the largest engine of Mercedes at that time, the
6-cylinder 300, was inadequate. Instead a new engine with more than twice
the capacity was specially developed to move the vehicle and its
hydraulically powered amenities, the massive 6.3L V8 "M100" engine with
single overhead camshafts, and Bosch mechanical fuel injection. 1963--1981
The 600's "M-100" engine and hydraulics were fitted to the 300SEL 6.3 model
in 1968, providing the lighter (and more affordable) car with astounding,
for the time, performance, creating the worlds' fastest four-door saloon.
Upon the introduction of the "W116" chassis, a larger version of M-100 was
installed in the Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9 Top Gear Maybach cabriolet Road

few miles on British soil with the Mercedes-Benz 600, once driven by Elvis
Presley. On the 6th December, 'the sovereign' will be auctioned at the

he told us of the unique history of the car and the legend of the King.
