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.
