Mercedes-Benz has launched the Best of Benz, which lists what the company thinks are its top 5 luxury cars. The company dug into its archive and decided on what it thought were its best cars, which consisted of the 540K, Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet, Mercedes-Benz 600, Mercedes-Maybach S 650 Cabriolet, and 300 SLR respectively.
Each car has its own reasons for being on the list, with the 540K making it one because of its notoriety as a status symbol while the 600 entered the list for being “over-engineered” for its time and being driven by members of the royal family. Watch the video above to see just why each model was chosen to be on the list.
The last appearance for Mercedes was a decidedly virtual one, appearing in Gran Turismo.
