1972 Mercedes-Benz 600


The phrase “they don’t make them like they used to” may be an overly used cliche, but if you were to apply to one car and one car only, it’d be the 1970s Mercedes-Benz 600.

It was not only a supremely high quality product that had hydraulically operated windows (instead of the usual electric), a hydraulically operated boot and lots of luxury features to suit would-be (and real) dictators.

Nowadays they are extremely sought after, especially well maintained ones like the one Jay Leno has.
