From its debut in 1951 at the Frankfurt Auto Show, the Mercedes Type 300 line had always been a car reserved for the most affluent and well-heeled customers of the day, however with the launch of the 300SC in 1955, Mercedes took automotive opulence to a whole new level. Built to exacting standards with only the most luxurious and high-quality materials, the Mercedes 300SC was a top-of-the-line luxury car that led the way in style, elegance and technological advancements. Many collectors search for the 1958 Mercedes Benz 300SC Coupe version because it was the last model-year and encompassed all the changes that had taken place throughout the development of the line. This includes the inline-six fuel-injected engine, the low-pivot independent suspension and hydrovac power brakes. Mercedes 300SC models, known as the W188 II internally, are also recognized by the word einspritzmotor on the rear bumper, signifying its fuel-injection engine.
In the world of classic cars, the Cabriolet versions are often the most sought after, but there is something to be said about a 300SC Coupe that has not been exposed to the elements in quite the same way a Cabriolet has.
