Launched in 1954, the 220A represented Mercedes-Benz’s new generation of cars with unit-body construction. Built on a slightly longer wheelbase than the predecessor 180, it provided more legroom for rear seat passengers, as well as more room under the hood for a 2.2-liter six-cylinder engine. Servo-assisted brakes became standard in September 1955, followed by the introduction of the 220S in August 1957, which had 106 horsepower, courtesy of dual Solex downdraft carburetors, providing increased performance to match the fleet styling.
The most desirable of the 220S variants were the two-door models, which were produced in very limited numbers. While mass-produced, the cars were hand-finished at Sindelfingen by craftsmen skilled in the art of coachbuilding, and the result was jewel-like fit and finish, at a cost nearly 75% more than the sedan. As a result, fewer than 2,000 of the coupe and cabriolet 220S were sold between 1957 and 1959. Like most cars that were prohibitively expensive when new, they have remained desirable ever since, and they are viewed by many Mercedes-Benz aficionados, compared to the legendary 300 series that preceded them, as the company’s ultimate “grand tourer” models. The 220S has taken its rightful place in the hierarchy of Stuttgart’s most famous and beloved creations.
