1963 Mercedes Benz 220SE 111

Tasked with finding a suitable successor to the illustrious Ponton series of Mercedes Benz, when the Head of Passenger Car Development, the Head of Body Development, and the Head of Engine Development got together, what resulted was the Mercedes Benz 220SE 111. Using the only guidelines given to them – that the passenger cabin would be roomier – their team set out to design a car that would be strong enough to stand in contrast to the Pontons, but that would capture the heart of the export market. Perhaps the most notable indicator that the 1963 Mercedes Benz 220SE 111 was designed for the American market was the addition of the now famous fintail edges. Ironically, Karl Wilfert who was the Head of Body Development at the time, decided at the last minute that he did not like the fintails – but by that time it was too late.
