The Mercedes-Benz Type 300 (chassis codes W186, W188, and W189) were the company’s flagship models produced throughout most of the 1950s. Analogous to the top of today’s S-Class, the Type 300 cars were elegant, powerful, exclusive, and expensive. Two types were produced, a four-door tourer equal in luxury and price but superior in performance to similar competitors; Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud, and BMW 501, but hand-built two-door sports tourer rarefied in elegance, proportion, and cost.
The hand-built two-door “W188” Type 300 S was Mercedes-Benz’s top-end vehicle on its introduction at the Paris Salon in October 1951. The Type 300 S came as a 2-seat roadster, 2+2 coupé, and cabriolet (with landau bars, officially Cabriolet A). Although mechanically similar to the contemporary W186, the additional craftsmanship, visual elegance, and 50% higher price tag elevated the W188 to the apex of its era’s luxury cars.
7.8:1 compression and triple Solex carburettors raised maximum engine output to 150 PS (110 kW; 150 hp) at 5000 rpm.
From July, 1952 to August, 1955, a total of 216 Coupés, 203 Cabriolet As and 141 Roadsters were produced.
