Club Vehicles

Our club has over 250 members and among those members a base of several hundred cars, spanning from such early cars as a 1913 Benz Tourer to a 1950's era 300S (originally owned by the Royal Family of Argentina) right up to current model vehicles.

As an officially recognised Mercedes-Benz Club, we strive to preserve the heritage and history of the Mercedes-Benz marque.

Below are some examples of the variety and range of vehicles that belong to our club members. Roadsters and sedans built between 1960 and 1990 are especially popular and numerous among our membership.

Also, be sure to check out our club photo album for more pictures.

'Ponton' or 'Roundie' Sedan & Roadster

The Mercedes-Benz "Ponton" or "Roundie" cars were produced from 1953 through 1962 and were the first new postwar sedan design from Mercedes-Benz. They were sold under the "180", "190" and "220" model names. The four-cylinder 180 and 190 were the mainstay of Mercedes' lineup during this period and were available with petrol and diesel engines. The six-cylinder Ponton models featured a longer front end but were similar in appearance from the windshield back. The top of the line fuel injected 220SE was also available as a coupe and cabriolet and fewer than 4000 were built from 1958-1960. A 2 door roadster was also produced as the R121 190SL which was based on the W121 sedan.

'Fintail', 'Finnie' or 'Heckflosse' Sedan, Coupe, Cabriolet series

The Mercedes-Benz W111 Sedans were launched in 1959. The design focused on passenger comfort and safety - a milestone in car design which was first introduced on the Fintail series were front and rear crumple zones. The body was modern and featured characteristic tailfins that gave the models their nickname — the 'Fintail' or 'Finnie' ('Heckflosse' in German). 4 cylinder petrol and diesel versions were added in 1961 as well as super luxury 3 litre sedans (W112 range) with air suspension, fuel injection and 4 wheel disc brakes. 2 door hardtop and cabriolet versions were also produced and have become highly desirable as collector cars. Nearly 1 million cars of type W110, W111 and W112 were produced from 1959-1972.

'Pagoda' SL

This very popular SL roadster was built between 1963 and 1971. All models were a cabriolet with an optional removable hard top. The slightly concave hardtop inspired the "Pagoda" nickname. 2013 will mark the 50th Anniversary of this series, with a large celebration and event to be held in Canberra.

These luxury sedans were built from 1965 through 1972. An update of the predecessor W111 and W112 fintail sedans, the cars were successful in West Germany and in export markets and sold well in Australia. A highlight of the series was the long wheelbase 300SEL 6.3 which featured air suspension, 4 wheel disc brakes and a fuel injected 6.3 litre engine.

Built from 1972 to 1980, the W116 revolutionised the automotive world and is considered by many to be the first truly 'modern' car of the 20th century. Models ranged from the 6 cylinder 2.8 litre 280S to the high performance 6.9 Litre 450SEL long wheelbase limousine.

190 Series

The first 'compact' Mercedes-Benz was launched in 1982 and is the forerunner of todays C-Class. These models had a reputation of being 'massively over-engineered' and many are still in daily use today.

W124

Sedan / Wagon / Coupe / Cabriolet

The W124 is regarded as one of the last of the 'solid' and 'over-engineered' Mercedes-Benz cars. This series combined contemporary styling with modern features and exceptional durability and build quality. Built until 1995, a high number of these cars are still on the road today.

Many of our club sponsors offer club member discounts on servicing and parts for vehicles of all ages.

Exotica

Rare Vintage and Modern Supercars

There are some very special vehicles that often make an appearance at our club events. Examples such as the 300S shown were built in very small numbers and are incredibly rare and collectible today. At our 2012 National Rally we were also lucky to have a SLS AMG Roadster provided by Mercedes-Benz Australia/Pacific.
