W111 fintails being born

Not sure if this has been posted, I just came across it (I think I have seen it before somewhere), thought it was cool. Nice shot at the end with a few other models too:

That's nice. I wonder why people believe the W111 were the last hand built Mercedes. I see this mentioned so often in the adds and classifieds.

Great vid, I have been looking for archival pics of the cars being produced, been especially looking for materials on the coupes but no luck. Regarding someone's comment about the W111's being handbuilt, I was under the impression this only related to the coupes as they were much more costly, lower production and had a unique body.

How about the 300SL roadsters at around the 2:52 mark! Such a cool video, thanks for posting.
