The 220S debuted at Frankfurt in 1956 as the top of a new line of cars. It used the company's envelope-style ponton body and shared a strong family resemblance to the sporty 190SL and mighty 300SL. Unlike those specialty two-seaters, however, the 220S was hand-built to carry passengers in luxury on a daily basis..
