The press praises this car and compares it with top-class sports cars at the time.
Despite unique comfort, the top speed is 220 km/h, with acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds.
The press calls the “6.3” : “the gentle force!”.
Easily recognizable by the H1 halogen twin headlamps, which eliminated the fog lamps in the light unit. Instead, separate round fog lights were mounted next to the grille.
Its robustness and reliability quickly aroused interest for use in touring championship motorsports and rallying.
The 6,526 units produced make the “6.3” a sought-after collector’s item today.

Check this walkaround video of this offered 6.3:
The paint has been partially renewed to remove light rust on the sunroof, and the gasket has been renewed. The overall appearance of the blue metallic (387) paint is good. This color was mainly used on coupes and is very rare on the sedan. The minor welding needed on the underbody has also been professionally done.
The velour interior is in good original condition. The floor carpets need to be renewed and the wooden parts need to be refreshed. The dashboard also shows no cracks or injuries.
The original engine, as well as the transmission have been overhauled and work perfectly. It was first delivered to Switzerland and left the factory without AC.
The air suspension has been completely rebuilt with all associated hoses and works flawlessly as well as brakes, etc…. The electrical system is also free of defects. All lights, switches, power windows, sunroof, central locking, etc. work perfectly.
Care was taken not to install cheap accessories, but original Mercedes parts, as well as the original Mercedes exhaust.
Check here an excerpt of the works:
- Brakes complete renewed incl. all brake lines
- All four air bellows of the air suspension incl. all hoses and supply lines renewed
- All welding work, including sills, etc. (of course also Tüv relevant)

It is still a beauty.
The car is in a collection and was moved with German 07 license plates. H license plate is available and a new and defect-free Tüv is nothing in the way.
This “gentle force” is ready to start the journey with you, if you understand, that this is not a 6-digits-price 6.3, a technical overhauled and solid, reliable beautifull classic of the rare 300SEL 6.3.
Don`t miss it and convince yourself with the pictures.
