1928 Mercedes Benz 680 S

Each year, one car show stands out among the rest in the United States. The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance judges classic cars in several categories: history, authenticity, function, and style. Judges are selected carefully and are experts in the industry. This charitable event is the culmination of a week-long celebration, which focuses on classic cars. This year, the event concluded in mid-august, and it named a 1928 Mercedes Benz 680 S as its winner. The winner had a custom body and was in great condition. Below, we take a closer look at the classic Mercedes 680 S Saoutchik Torpedo Roadster, an impressive model known for both speed and rarity.
