The Spacious Classic, Vintage Mercedes-Benz

A Chauffeured 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 chauffeured 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.

The car comes dressed in ribbons with a neutral colour flower spray on the rear parcel shelf. This rare Mercedes-Benz is classed as one of the best wedding cars for hire in Kent.

The car has also featured in the following magazines

Mercedes-Benz Club Gazette, May 2006. In a six page article 'Donovans 6.3' by Steve Barratt.

Practical Classics, July 2006. In a three page article 'Road Test' by Paul Wakely and Nigel Boothman.
