More About this Item


Description: 1979 Mercedes-Benz 600 Limousine blindée Titre de circulation extra-communautaire Dédouanée en France Châssis n°100-012-12 002570 Moteur n°100-982-12 000026 - Très faible kilométrage - Seconde main, bien entretenue - Rare version blindée Le moteur de 6,3L et de 250 ch fut le premier V8 construit par Mercedes, il était capable de propulser les 2500 kg de la voiture à plus de 200 km/h dans un silence digne d''une Rolls-Royce. Seulement 2677 Mercedes 600 furent construites, dont 2190 limousines quatre portes, 428 Pullman et 59 landaulets. La voiture présentée totalise seulement 29 900 km d''origine et provient de la flotte présidentielle d''un chef d''Etat africain. Elle fut toujours conduite par un chauffeur de la présidence et scrupuleusement entretenue par le réseau Mercedes. Elle est blindée au niveau des portes, du plancher, du coffre et du toit. La lunette arrière et les vitres latérales sont blindées. Elle est équipée d''un sabot de protection de carter moteur à l''avant et d''un pour le réservoir d''essence à l''arrière. Elle ne présente aucune trace d''accident ni de corrosion et depuis son importation récente en France, elle a été l''objet de travaux de remise en état par l''excellent Jean Christophe Branthomme, Atelier 600, à la Heunière en haute Normandie, spécialiste du modèle depuis bientôt trente ans. La peinture qui était ternie a été refaite dans sa teinte d''origine 904 G et est d''excellente facture. Les chromes ont été confiés aux renommés ateliers APF et les tapis ont également été refaits ainsi que les joints de portes. La suspension a été reconditionnée, les coussins pneumatiques et le correcteur d''assiette remplacés ainsi que le système de freinage. La voiture conserve sa hauteur de caisse en permanence et ne descend pas comme beaucoup dont les suspensions pneumatiques sont fatiguées. La révision mécanique complète avec changement des fluides a été faite et le pot d''échappement partiellement en Inox a été remplacé. La climatisation fonctionne et les 4 pneux Maxxis sont neufs. Les vitres ne s''ouvrent pas à cause du blindage et le système hydraulique de réglage des sièges et de fermeture de la malle a été remplacé par un système mécanique. Elle est équipée de rideaux à l''arrière, d''une télévision Panasonic et de son antenne d''époque et de porte-drapeaux sur les ailes avant. Extra-European title Customs cleared in France Chassis n ° 100-012-12 002570 Engine n°100-982-12 000026 - Very low mileage - 2 owners since new, well maintained - Rare armored version The 250bhp 6.3L engine was the first V8 built by Mercedes, capable of propelling the 2.5 ton car to speeds of over 200 km/h, in a silence worthy of a Rolls-Royce. Only 2,677 Mercedes 600 were ever built, including 2,190 four-door limousines, 428 Pullman and 59 landaulets. The car on offer has covered only 29,900 km since new, and comes from the presidential fleet of an African head of state. It was always driven by a driver of the Presidential palace and scrupulously well maintained by the Mercedes-Benz dealer network. It is armored at the doors, the floor, the trunk and the roof. The rear window and the side windows are bullet proof. It is equipped with a crankcase protection plate at the front and one for the fuel tank at the rear. It shows no trace of any accidents or corrosion and since its recent import into France, it has been the subject of some restoration works by the excellent set-up of Jean Christophe Branthomme, Atelier 600, at Heunière in Upper Normandy, a specialist of this model for nearly thirty years now. The paint which was a bit tarnished was redone in its original 904 G color and is very well done. The work on the chrome was entrusted to the renowned APF garage and the carpets were also redone, as well as the door seals. The suspension h
