    Mercedes-Benz Nürburg W 08 (1928 - 1933).

The Nürburg 460 (W 08) made its debut in 1928 as the first Mercedes-Benz series-produced passenger car to feature an 8-cylinder engine.

The name “Nürburg” was a reference to the Nürburgring race track, which had been inaugurated just one year earlier. The background to this choice of name was a spectacular endurance trial in which a 460 model covered a distance of 20,000 kilometres in 13 days round the Nürburgring. The elegant and luxurious Pullman saloon version was one of the most popular variants of the 8-cylinder Nürburg, which was available from 1934 to 1939 as the Typ 500.
