22.10.2022 – Mercedes 600 Type W100
The first ideas to design „the best car in the world „were born at Mercedes in the middle of the 50ies of the last century. Head of the Design Department Fritz Nallinger showed with his project W100, what was technically possible at this time – air suspension, servo brake, three speed automatic transmission, a powerful V8 engine with a displacement of 6,3ccm, later 6,9ccm, 250 horsepower and servo drives for most accessories like seats, windows, sunroof and many others.
Between 2000 and 3000 cars of all types were manufactured between 1963 and 1981. The W100 became the car for statesmen, artists and wealthy entrepreneurs.
Peter Schellhammer was the „Mercedes W100 task force” during these years.
If a technical problem was encountered at any VIP-fleet 600 car anywhere in the world, he jumped into a plane within the next day and solved it.
Already a long time retired, he will speak about technical features of the W100 and tell us about his experience with the statesmen of the world during the 60ies, 70ies and 80ies of last century.
