I was down at Mercedes-Benz World this week, attending a meeting. It was my first time there, and between talks I took the opportunity to photograph a few of the sights to share with you wonderful guys. This isn’t really an article with any structure, but there are some cool bits and pieces…
Firstly, some actual bits and pieces. An incredibly cool artist’s installation of a Mercedes Race Car, exploded and hung from the ceiling. As the first thing to see as we reached the first floor, this made quite an impact. Gorgeous!
Next, the spectacular (and I really mean spectacular) Mercedes-Benz SLS 55. This is, of course, ostentatious to the max, and that is somewhat key to its brilliance. I was particularly swayed by the perfect gun metal silver shade, and the great wheels, but the gullwing doors and £200k price tag probably didn’t hurt either.
Next up, the more formal side of Mercedes – proper professional limousines. The Mercedes 600 is big, brash, and powerful. This particular one also had an amazing navy leather interior, but that is by the by.
And finally, a very rare sports car, the name of which I have forgotten. It was ugly as sin, of course, but that doesn’t stop people being willing to pay one hell of a lot for it!
