Sports cars have always been considered as the successful bonding between man and machine. Mercedes-Benz thus takes pride in its fleet of super sports cars to be showcased in the Mercedes-Benz Museum.
The event, dubbed the ‘Super Sports Car special exhibition’, will be held from April 27 to August 29 of this year. To be featured in the exhibition are eight historic models, namely a 1928 SSK, a 1969 C 111, a 1998 CLK-GTR, the famed 300 SL of 1954, a 1991 C 112, a 1999 Vision SLR and a 1906 75hp antique.
