It's a book about Mercedes cars owned by Royalty and celebrities, presumably including lots of 600s.

Fidel Castro's 600 was in the movie that Oliver Stone shot in Cuba about Castro. At the end of the movie there is an interview with Fidel and Oliver in the 600. Fidel offered Oliver Stone to drive him to the airport, which Olive Stone refused, claiming he (Fidel) must be very busy to attend to the state, which Fidel answered jokingly: You are American, I want to make sure you leave.
I guess dictators have sense of humor too.
If I recall the interior is Cogniac, and exterior is black. the car was a gift from Honeocker (ex dictator of east germany)The car is bullit proof.

With Cuba,Venezuela and now Columbia joining to create their own Oil combine ,it won't be long before the 600's are replaced with Maybachs...

...There are old cars,and then there are Classics..(Mercedes Benz Ad. 1999)

Hi Pual, those AMG prefixs would be the ones with the V12 engine?.The pictures of one in HongKong were his ,with the W140 engine.Theres plenty of horsepower but not enough torque to drive the car up onto a transporter.

A few years back at Techno Classica, I remember being in on a discussion with a guy who had converted six 600s to V12 M120 drivetrains for the Sultan, and was negotiating with Karl Middlehauve to find a home for the M100 engines and trannys.

Hi Ron and Mike,

I found those Vinnumbers on the web and then you can figure out which types that are. There is nothing said about originality. So it could be that some or all have now a V12, mounted by AMG. For shure the Vinnummber 601 hass the V12motor and is black colored with black leather.

But if these V12 powered W100 have not enough power to enter a transporter, it also shows how good those old big torque M100-motors were then and now !!!
(Un-)Lucky for us in Europe and the USA, that are all RHD-cars
so the LHD cars still will exist

Now we know that he has 2 Landaulets from the 59 and at least one (black) is converted to a V12-motor. It would be nice if you had more knowledge about his M100-cars and options.
