Mercedes-Benz 630K Tourer 1928 Unique Classic Design – Mercedes became Mercedes-Benz in 1926 when Daimler and Benz joined. What is interesting about the Mercedes-Benz 630K Tourer 1928 is that it was originally introduced in 1924 when Mercedes was only Mercedes. The model line is known as 24/100/140 PS. When the company joins, the name is changed to Type 630 although 24/110/160 PS is still in use.
The Mercedes-Benz 630K Tourer 1928 is more or less designed by Dr. Ferdinand Porsche when he arrived at Mercedes to replace Paul Daimler who departed. This model is a follow up of the 6/25/40 PS model that Mercedes introduced in 1921 as the world’s first supercharged production car. Also on the slash in the name indicates rated horsepower / horsepower without the supercharger / horsepower with the supercharger involved. It can be seen that strength in the model is greatly improved.

The “K” variant of the new 630 Type is for 1926 and it stands for “Kurz” and not “Kompressor” that anyone might think. “Kurz” translates to “short” – as in wheelbase. The K variant is available on other Mercedes-Benz models from 1926 to 1932. They have a top speed of 90 mph and only 267 are built.
