The Spacious Classic, Vintage Mercedes-Benz

Unique wedding car

This model was a popular choice in its day by many celebrities and wealthy people. It boasted a smooth ride due to the powerful engine, self levelling air suspension and large amount of leg room in the rear. Longer rear doors mean that this car was built to be chauffeured in. The extra leg room makes it ideal as a most spacious unique wedding car. The large sunroof also gives you the feeling of openness when fully retracted, the style and build quality being reminiscent of a past time.
