A request directed to Paul Bracq, designer of the Grand 600 – how he envisioned a Grand 600 coupe/convertible resulted in two design concepts:
1. A Grand 600 coupe or convertible on a W-100 chassis, wheelbase 303.5 cm (320.0 cm W-100), total length 530.5 cm, the front axle moved forward 12 cm and the roof lowered 10 cm.
2. Take a W129 2002 SL600 Silver Arrow with complete technical, wheelbase and a donor 600 Limousine parts car, rebody and create a “Grand” Mercedes Benz SL600 Silver Arrow.

Auf gehts! ZU JEDER ZEIT GEHT UNTER WAS NIEDRIG IST UND FAUL. STILL SCHWEIGEND SCHAFFT DER MEISTER, DER STUMPER BRAUCHT DAS MAUL ~

What you see in the following photos is the realization of Paul Bracq’s design concept number 2, built from start to finish in 9 months, not bad, you agree and enjoy the slide-show. Ready for Karl & Ruth Middelhauve to celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary.
