While the D type had much of a grand tourer appearance with a retractable rear-folding soft-top and a large open top compartment, the F model was rather more conservative of its cabrio origins, boasting a more elegant look.
Although many a workshops back then were responsible for MB bodywork, the F type was considerably smaller than its touring sibling and all together rounder. Because of the variety of coachwork and the nearly identical appearance of both vehicles it was rather hard to tell one from another. However, the F mode did tend to have shorter rear doors and spare wheels mounted closer to the front doors.

The sedan was MB’s flagship model at the time, a large luxurious automobile built to the exact specifications of a mad scientist.
Despite its similar styling with other Nurburg models, the sedan was easily recognizable by its spacious cabin which had not two but three pair of windows and enough rear compartment room to house a family of gnomes. Indeed, rear room was twice as bigger as front, providing comfortable seating for up to 3-4 adult depending on whether the car came with a folding smaller bench or not. Size came mated to plenty of luxury touches from window frames to spare wheel release handles and refined interior.

The bulky Cabrio had an identical design to the coupe and was one of MB’s less popular cars.
Offered with a choice of three power units comprising a 4.6 L plant and its revised version as well as a larger 5.0 L engine , the car seemed to have covered plenty of customer needs. However, it failed to do so despite its elegant styling complete with stylish wooden multiple-spoke wheels and power outputs of 80 hp and 100 hp respectively. Although the vehicle was not a personal best for MB, it was still a notable car with plenty of ground clearance, power and suspension to make country-road trips enjoyable.

The Nurburg was the last vehicle developed by Ferdinand Porsche while he worked for Mercedes-Benz, a range of cars that included the rare Cabriolet C version.
Developed on a high chassis construction, the Nurburg replaced the six-cylinders vehicles from the W03/04/05 lineup. Its name came from the extensive endurance testing program imagined by the German carmaker when a car ran 20.000 km (12.427 miles) in 13 days on the Nurburgring racetrack. The main model was a sedan, but since customers asked for a personal luxury convertible, that was the C-version.

Since Ferdinand Porsche built the Nurburg on a high-chassis system, the convertible version adopted the same platform. That led to high ground clearance. The car featured a long engine compartment to accommodate the inline-eight engine. Like most of the premium carmakers from that era, a curved chromed bar between the front fenders supported the headlights. Worth mentioning that the Nurburg and the Cabriolet C, respectively, were the last Mercedes-Benz that sported wooden spoke wheels.

Its cabin provided room for five, with two individual seats at the front and a bench in the rear. The carmaker covered the dash panel with wood, and the instrument panel took center stage. Its four-spoke steering wheel featured the commands for ignition timing and fuel mixture.

Mercedes-Benz installed the same engine with different power outputs for the entire Nurburg range. The 4.6-liter supercharged version provided 80 hp, while the full-option model featured a 5.0-liter 100 hp unit.

The scantily clad Sport Roadster may not have been as good looking as the 500/540 K Autobahnkurier/Luxus/Spezial models but it certainly packed enough power at the time thanks to its in-line 8-cylinder 4.6L petrol plant. 80 hp were enough to propel the car’s tube-like body throughout the 62 mph mark while the sturdy suspension system comprising live axles and semi-elliptic leaf-springs ensured a firm ride. Easily spottable thanks to its carved seat compartment and fast-back construction, the Sport Roadster was a very rare bird, having had a production time of only 1 year.
