The dream of open-top driving is closely linked with the 130-year history of the motor car. Sporty roadsters and luxurious cabriolets from Mercedes-Benz play a pivotal role in this respect. At the Retro Classics the brand is presenting an exquisite selection of open-top vehicles sporting the three-pointed star. The Mercedes-Benz Classic stand picks up on the theme with its intricate, airy architecture while consummately showcasing three classic vehicles and two new Mercedes-Benz models. The Mercedes-Benz Classic exhibition area in Hall 7 also provides a stage for the “ALL TIME STARS” on offer for sale, along with numerous Mercedes-Benz brand clubs. The 16th Retro Classics will be held between 17 and 20 March 2016 at the Stuttgart exhibition centre.
The ALL TIME STARS from Mercedes-Benz Classic have their own stand in Hall 7 at the Retro Classics. The high-quality Mercedes-Benz modern classics and vintage vehicles on offer for sale reflect the huge diversity of the brand’s vehicles over the ages. The line-up features all cars made by Mercedes-Benz and the predecessor brands. The focus is on classics that are suitable for everyday driving. Maximum transparency was the guiding principle behind their selection: the Mercedes-Benz Classic experts subjected each vehicle to a comprehensive 160-item checklist.
The classics are categorised into three editions that describe their condition and authenticity: the Concours Edition includes modern classics and vintage vehicles in rare original condition with low mileage and vehicles that have been carefully restored by the Mercedes-Benz Classic experts in Fellbach/Stuttgart. The Collectors Edition comprises vintage vehicles and modern classics that are in excellent condition both technically and visually. Their patina gives them a particularly special character. The Drivers Edition is aimed at individuals looking for vintage vehicles and modern classics suitable for everyday driving and for people who enjoy working on cars. These cars are in good technical condition but still offer potential for further restoration work.
