When you’re in the classic car market for the best or nothing, it only makes sense to turn to Mercedes-Benz. The German automaker has been churning out iconic luxury cars for more than a century. Out of its enormous catalog of legendary automobiles, it’s tough to pick just a few. But even with so many options, we can safely say that these are some the best classic Mercedes-Benz cars ever made.
Widely regarded as the ultimate sports sedan of the early 1990s, the 500E had larger brakes and an upgraded suspension compared to the standard model. Only 1,500 examples were sold in the United States, and each of them took 18 days to completely assemble as they were shipped back and forth between Mercedes-Benz and Porsche headquarters, where they were hand-built.
It’s no exaggeration got say the 300SL is not just the most recognizable Mercedes-Benz of all time, but one of the most recognizable cars in history, bar none. But the 300SL is more than just a set of gullwing doors and extraordinary interior appointments. When it launched in 1954, it was also the world’s fastest car with a top speed of 163 mph.
The G-Class is probably the most iconic vehicle that Mercedes-Benz still makes today. Since 1979, this overpowered wagon has served as a military vehicle, a six-wheeled monster truck, a trusty safari companion, you name it. Today, it has become a favorite among the world’s elite, but the G-Class remains true to its roots: handsome, functional, and astonishingly capable.
