Take a Look at the Mercedes-Benz 600 Jack Nicholson Owned

All Mercedes-Benz 600s are special, and many were owned by extremely important people. And then there are the 600s that are famous, like this one.

The Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles recently showcased a Mercedes 600 that has a Hollywood history. This 1972 short-wheelbase model was once owned by actor Jack Nicholson. Finished in a striking purple shade, it looks particularly regal. Which is why it also played a supporting role in the 1987 film The Witches of Eastwick, in which Nicholson played The Devil.

Leaders all over the world, and even the underworld, loved the 600’s stately styling.

Now, CarStories says it’s “A Mercedes built for The Devil.” But then there’s this other 600 in their collection that had a slightly more infamous owner.

    Mercedes have a blind spot when it comes to ‘King of the Hill’ premium models. First we had that rather boring looking Mabach, only for it to be axed and replaced (allegedly) by some cobbled up ‘S Class’. The company would have been so much more successful with a modern version of the 600. Its classic proportions are timeless, and would give Mercedes a product that could sit alongside Rolls and Bentley without any inferiority. Sometimes the answers are from history?
