Mercedes-Benz will give us a blast from the past, present and future at Pebble Beach


Mercedes-Benz will make its mark on Monterey Car Week with a wide-ranging display of cars from throughout its history, along with key vehicles from the current line-up, and a glimpse or two of the future.

“At Pebble Beach Automotive Week, we would like to invite you on an amazing journey back through time with a display of selected brand icons that show why Mercedes-Benz has continued to fascinate people for 137 years,” says Head of Communications Bettina Fetzer.

Mercedes-Benz Typ S Sport-Viersitzer (W 06), 1927.

Two supercharged W 06 models will begin proceedings by taking part in the Pebble Beach Tour d’Elegance on August 17. A 1927 four-seater Sport  (above), and a 1930 SS Cabriolet with unique coachwork designed for the Maharajah of Kashmir (pictured top) will join more than 150 other classics on the Tour which begins in Pebble Beach, follows 17-Mile Drive, and Highway One to Big Sur, before returning to Pebble Beach. On August 21-23 they’ll be joined by 18 other W 06 cars to form the largest convoy of these models ever gathered in North America, for a longer California road trip.

More classics will be on display at the Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge including the 600, Pagoda SL, while Maybach will have a historic Zeppelin DS 7 on show alongside the latest electric Mercedes-Maybach EQS 680 SUV. 

Mercedes-Benz Vision One-Eleven

AMG will be busy too, with the unveiling of a special edition SL and the world premiere of the next Mercedes-AMG GT model, and you’ll also be able to feast your eyes on the stunning Vision One-Eleven concept car, and get your hands on some new Merc merch inspired by the C111 cars of the 1970s.

The bizarre PROJECT MONDO G art car will also be on show, so no sharp objects near the stand please!
