When it was launched in 1963, the 600 SWB Sedan was the height of luxury for Mercedes-Benz. In 1972, the 600 SWB Sedan launched Mercedes’ first V8 engine. It also features innovative and highly luxurious features such as an adjustable steering wheel, hydraulic seats, and even a refrigerator in the front center console. As you will see in this video, the 1972 Mercedes-Benz 600 SWB Sedan has stood the test of time, and is still a beautiful automobile (even by today’s standards).
Like the 1972 Mercedes-Benz 600 SWB Sedan, the pre-owned Mercedes-Benz models here at TexasCarsDirect.com are still some of the most sought-after luxury vehicles in the world.

Even if you buy a luxury used car from an automaker like Jaguar, Porsche, or Mercedes-Benz, you can still customize the vehicle to reflect your personal taste and style. One of the best ways to enhance the look and appeal of your luxury vehicle is by installing aftermarket wheels. When it comes to rims for your luxury used car, you will have the choice between a chrome and painted finish. While it is largely a matter of taste, there are a few pros and cons that may help you decide.
Chrome rims can withstand extreme temperatures and will hold up to the harshest weather conditions. The mirror-like finish is also very attractive to luxury car aficionados. Painted rims, on the other hand, offer a much more unique and personalized expression. However, painted rims are not intended for harsh conditions, so extra care must be taken to ensure they remain in one piece and do not flake or chip.
TexasCarsDirect.com offers the finest selection of luxury used cars, and all of them will look great with aftermarket rims of your choosing. Visit our website to browse our full inventory of used luxury vehicles, or call us at (214) 736-8557 if you have any questions.
Depending on the speed at impact and the size and weight of the object struck, front air bags inflate to prevent occupants from hitting the dashboard, steering wheel, and windshield. Air bags can drastically reduce the potential for serious injury in the event of an accident, especially high-speed and head-on collisions. While all used cars come with air bags, luxury used cars often come with multiple airbags in addition to those in the steering wheel and dashboard for added protection.
Antilock Brake System
An antilock brake system (ABS) prevents a vehicle’s wheels from locking up during emergency braking, which gives the driver greater steering control. All passenger cars are either equipped with two-wheel or four-wheel ABS. Some luxury used cars also include brake assist in addition to ABS, which senses emergency braking to activate the ABS more quickly and easily compared to vehicles without brake assist.
Traction Control/Stability Control
Traction and stability control systems are designed to improve vehicle stability, especially during extreme steering maneuvers. Traction control adjusts engine power output and may even apply braking force to selected wheels to keep the vehicle’s tires firmly planted on the pavement. Electronic stability control, on the other hand, automatically applied the brake to correct oversteer or understeer.

The selection was fantastic and the buying process was easy and quick. Fast forward to yesterday when we bought our second car from Texas Cars Direct. Luckily Adam was there.
