A Unique Wedding Car

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

The wedding 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.
