The company said that more than 120 classic Mercedes-Benz models will be showcased on the fourth. Among them are the memorable production autos of the brand as well as the race cars that truly made a mark not only in the record books of Mercedes but also in motorsport history. On the following day, public service vehicles bearing the three-pointed star marque will be displayed. The units include a fire brigade, paramedic, police, and technical relief vehicles.
Also on the said Sunday of the event, the Mercedes-Benz Classic Mile will be held, which shows off the historical autos of the museum up close to the spectators.
