Mercedes Benz was very much aware of the high expectations placed by customers on a premium luxury product like the Type 300, and went to work instantly to perfect it. The culmination of these efforts would first be presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 1954 with the release of the Mercedes Benz 300B. On the exterior, the 300B could be identified by bumper guards on the front and rear bumpers, which the previous model only had on its export version, and by vent windows in the front doors. Chrome perforated wheel rims were another upgrade, which ensured better head dispensation for the larger now ribbed brake drums and drivers now received power-braking assist. Mechanically, the 1954 Mercedes Benz 300B Cabriolet’s engine output was increased by 10hp to 125hp, and fuel consumption was reduced. Dubbed a diplomat’s car by the automotive press, the Type 300B is one of the most sought-after luxury Mercedes still today.
Each model-year, Mercedes Benz would release a very limited run of their Type 300. During 1954, only 87 units of the Type 300 and Type 300B Cabriolets would be produced.
