Engineering Excellence

Bright Beginning

It all started with Karl Benz’s Patent Motorwagen in 1886 that was believed to be the world’s first internal combustion automobile, and since then, Mercedes-Benz has continuously progressed to engineer the most advanced, luxurious vehicles on the market.

Take for example the 1940 Mercedes-Benz 230 Cabriolet B available at Fletcher Jones Imports. This aqua green and cream-colored car was powered by a 2.3 liter inline six-cylinder engine that used dual Solex carburetors and a low octane-friendly 6.6:1 compression to yield 55 hp, making it one of the biggest advancements of its era.

Its sophisticated full-bodied exterior featured a modern design that included an integral trunk, attractive chrome brightwork, and color-keyed wheels. This cabriolet also featured semaphore-type turn indicators, a bosch amber fog lamp and headlamp, and even a rear view mirror. Luxury did not lack on the inside either. The 1940 Mercedes-Benz 230 Cabriolet B’s inviting cabin was equipped with cream-beige leather upholstery, a green dash, German square-weave carpeting, and a rich wood trim.

Advancing Future

Much like the 1940 Mercedes-Benz 230 Cabriolet B, this futuristic Mercedes-Benz is also a real showstopper. The Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet will take you anywhere. When we say anywhere, we literally mean anywhere! Let your chauffer take you through paved roads, rough terrain, streams, or the side of a boulder strewn mountain, all while you sip on a few cocktails and receive a massage from the fully-reclining, perforated quilted leather seats with attached leg rest.

Inside the cabin, heated and cooled cup holders are available to keep your beverages at the perfect temperature. Also included is a glass partition and cloth roof that folds away at the push of button. With 18 inches of ground clearance and 630 hp, you have the ability to pave a road wherever you go.

Although the G 650 Landaulet won’t be available in the U.S., Fletcher Jones will help you find the ultimate dream car that is right for you.
