A 1975 Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman Maybach W100 that took seven years to restore is now on sale for $2.15 million.

The rebuilding and renovation of the vehicle took seven years to complete, between 2007 and 2014. The process — which was overseen by Mercedes-Benz Classic and Daimler AG — was completed with a goal of maintaining its iconic exterior qualities.

Several parts for the car were ordered from Mercedes-Benz’s ultra-luxe Maybach brand specifically for the restoration project to ensure that the W100 could authentically retain its iconic look. But instead of ordering a new gearbox or modern engine, the team restored the 1975 car’s original gearbox and 6.3-liter V8 engine, which has only seen 1,000 miles since its conception 45 years ago.

The car is now being sold by Netherlands-based Auto Leitner for €2.15 million, around $2.33 million, excluding VAT. Keep scrolling to see the fully restored 1975 Mercedes 600 Pullman Maybach W100:

Despite the strict adherence to maintaining the authentic look of the car, several modern touches were added, such as electrical adjustable seats, and a heater and air conditioning unit.
