Special exhibition at the Mercedes-Benz Museum: Super sports car: Fascination is in the DNA
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
Stuttgart, Germnany, Mar 02, 2010
Eight impressive super sports cars will soon be showcasing a history of dreams come true to visitors at the Mercedes-Benz Museum. From Tuesday 27 April 2010 until Sunday 29 August 2010 a special exhibition will document the unique sports car tradition at Mercedes-Benz. One of these, unsurprisingly, will be the latest addition to the family – the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.
“Cockpit, engine, wings – is it really still a car?” It’s a common enough question among those catching their first glimpse of the new gullwing supercar that goes on sale this spring. What accounts for fascination on four wheels? Which models are the antecedents of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG? The various development stages are illustrated by historic vehicles such as the legendary 300 SL and the unique C 112 and the passion that super sports cars generate is brought to life using multimedia elements. In addition, visitors are able to undertake a virtual spin in the new SLS AMG.
The Mercedes-Benz Museum is open daily except Mondays from 9.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. Further information for visitors is available from the Mercedes-Benz Classic Customer Center, tel. 0711 / 17 - 30 000 or online at www.mercedes-benz.com/museum .
