The Mercedes Benz 300S and 300SC series cars where the ultimate luxury cars of their era, and were considered the top-of-the-line of the brand. First shown in October 1951 at the Paris Auto Show, the 1952 Mercedes Benz 300S relied heavily on the technology of the Type 300 Adenauer models, though its styling was noticeably different. The 1952 300S came as a 2+2 fixed roof coupe, a cabriolet with functional landau bars, or as a roadster that had no landau bars and a top that completely disappeared when folded. Noted for their exceptional craftsmanship, visual elegance, and prestige, the W188 (as it was noted internally) saw more than a 50 percent increase in price from its W186 contemporary. From July 1952 to August 1955, a total of 216 coupes, 203 cabriolets and 141 roadsters were produced, making these models some of the most desirable Mercedes classics.
The 1952 Mercedes Benz 300S was also technologically advanced compared to its contemporaries. Mercedes raised the engine compression over the 300, 300B, 300C and 300D models to 7.8:1 by using three Solex downdraft carburetors, which resulted in nearly 150 horsepower. The 1952 Mercedes 300S could exceed 100k/hr in less than 15 seconds and had a top speed of almost 180km/h.
