The Mercedes-Benz 600, internally titled W 100, was a sensation with its V-8 engine and the short and long body shape, as Mercedes had built a representative vehicle by prototype of 770 for the first time. The 600 was the state and representative vehicle from Daimler-Benz in the 1960’s and 1970’s, being ahead of all other manufacturers. For Mercedes, the 600 was more a matter of prestige rather than a profitable business, so that despite the high sales price, each shipped out 600 made a loss. The German government for example never bought one. The minister of finance at that time Franz-Josef Strauß commented, the vehicle was way too expensive – probably because BMW, originating from his home town Munich, couldn’t offer a comparable car. That is why the German government rents the 600 up until today, when a representative vehicle is needed. Many of the ca. 2,600 vehicles were custom made based on the wishes of its wealthy clients. Although, or perhaps because there are now hardly any spare parts available for the Mercedes 600, the price has risen sharply among collectors and enthusiasts in recent years.

Buyer's Premium: The purchase price stated in the auction catalogue ("Starting price") does not include the buyer`s premium inclusive VAT. This is also the case with the hammer price. Thus Auctionata charges the Buyer's Premium additionally.

The amount of the buyer`s premium is calculated as follows:

at a hammer price up to 1.000.000,00 Euro the buyer´s premium is 29.75 % (including VAT); the buyer's premium amounts to 23.8 % (including VAT) of the winning bid for classic cars.

at a hammer price between 1.000.000,01 Euro and 2.000.000,00 Euro the buyer´s premium is 23,80 % (including VAT) for the (partial) amount of 1.000.000,00 Euro and 17,85% (including VAT) for the (partial) amount between 1.000.000,01 Euro and 2.000.000,00 Euro

at a hammer price more than 2.000.000,01 Euro the buyer´s premium is 17.85 % (including VAT) for the (partial) amount of 1.000.000,00 Euro, 17,85% (including VAT) for the (partial) amount between 1.000.000,01 Euro and 2.000.000,00 Euro and 14,28% (including VAT) for the (partial) amount beginning with 2.000.000,01 Euro.
