The car was captured along with the Luftwaffe chief on May 4, 1945, as US and British troops entered the Nazi stronghold of Berchtesgaden, the site of Hitler's Berghof.
The car is loaded with special features, including a custom body for a raised back seat and parade platform. According to Mercedes, it was the last of its type ever made, with regular production ceasing in 1939.

The car was taken into the possession ofthe US military's Colonel Heintges following Berchtesgaden, who had it painted OD green with the army star on the hood.
