Elegant, powerful, exclusive and expensive – these are words that characterize the 1954 Mercedes Benz 300S Cabriolet. Comparable to the top of today’s Mercedes Benz S-Class, the Type 300 was the epitome of luxury at the time (and perhaps is still today). Under the hood buyers would find Mercedes had raised the engine compression of the standard 300 model to 7.8:1 using three Solex carburetors, producing more than 150hp at 5,000rpm and boasting a top speed of 110mph. During their ear, the 1954 Mercedes Benz 300S Cabriolet was offered at a staggering price of more than $12,500; more than double the most expensive automobiles being offered in the American market. Today, the 300S Cabriolet models in good condition can easily fetch a price tag in the six-figure range. One thing is certain, if you were a well-heeled, affluent car enthusiasts during the era, you definitely had your eye on a Type 300S.
