Germany

To meet the order for 20 armour-plated 540 K saloons, Daimler-Benz used an ex-factory chassis that was still in stock at the plant in addition to 19 vehicles that had already been delivered to customers and requisitioned by the Wehrmacht. The chassis of these 19 vehicles were restored to ex-factory condition in Untertürkheim before being fitted with armour-plated bodies in Sindelfingen. The vehicles were delivered between November 1942 and February 1943.
