The Mercedes-Benz A-Class: What can we say other than what a truly amazing piece of automotive engineering.
Mercedes-Benz Classic is exhibiting two outstanding automobiles from the company’s own vehicle collection at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Élégance 2018. This collection is unique in the automotive industry in terms of its importance and size. It includes spectacular racing and record-breaking cars as well as research vehicles and production cars from every era. The two vehicles on view at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Élégance clearly illustrate the breadth of the company’s interpretation of automotive sportiness in the 1930s: the Mercedes-Benz 500 K Special Roadster from 1934 stands for the highly elegant aesthetics of a sports car, which the Stuttgart brand provided with customised coachwork bodies. The W 125 record-breaking car from 1938, on the other hand, recalls the numerous race victories and speed records of the Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrows in that era.
