It’s been a decade since Mercedes-Benz first rolled out its very first super sports car. Now, the company is celebrating their sports car heritage by presenting eight of their most iconic vehicles down at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. It’s going to go down from August 12 to 15. Along with old sports classics are the entire lineup of the E-Class range, a Gran Turismo 5 gaming sled courtesy of Sony, a Maybach exhibition and what everybody is hoping to experience, an SLS AMG test drive booth.
There will also be a private owner of a 1902 Simplex that’ll be gracing the event, driving 1,500 miles from his home just to please the crowds of Mercedes-Benz fans. This car won numerous hill climbs and road races back in its years. A 300SLR “Uhlenhaut Coupe” will also make an appearance from its home in the Mercedes-Benz Museum back in Stuttgart.
The rest of the cars that will be put on display are the following: a
1929 SSK; a 1952 W194 300SL–which ushered in the Sport and Light
era–which was the icon that gave the world the Gullwing doors; a 1956
W198 300SL; a 1970 C111-II; a 2011 SLS AMG; and of course, the 2011 SLS
AMG GT3 which is set to make its debut in racing later this year.
It’s all happening at Pebble Beach. So if you’re a true Mercedes-Benz connoisseur, you better be there this August!
