Mercedes-Benz 300.

This Mercedes-Benz 300 was Konrad Adenauer’s last official vehicle. The first Federal German Chancellor purchased it from the Federal Chancellery in 1963, shortly before his term of office ended, and drove it until he passed away in 1967. It was the sixth 300 model since 1951 in which Adenauer had himself chauffeured – which is why people identified it with the Chancellor and called it the “Adenauer Mercedes”.
