MERCEDES-BENZ RACING HISTORY: 120 YEARS!

Mercedes-Benz celebrates 120 years of racing history at Techno Classica 2014.
More than 30 racing cars, representing a timeline of extraordinary victories since 1894 and outstanding innovations in racing technology showcase 120 years of Mercedes-Benz motor racing history at Techno Classica in Essen this week.

 Mercedes-Benz Classic celebrates this incomparable string of moments in engineering history with a presentation encompassing more than 30 racing cars from all periods and disciplines of motor sport. This unique kaleidoscope of motor racing history is an illustrious highlight of the 26th world show for vintage and classic motorcars.

A strong showing of official Mercedes-Benz brand clubs enhances the exhibition. The 30-plus vehicles range from the more than 110-year-old Mercedes-Simplex to the Grand Prix racing
car of the last season. No classic motor show has ever displayed such a collection of
important racing cars from Mercedes-Benz. 

“Techno Classica, as one of the most important venues for historical automotive culture in the entire world, is the befitting setting for this excellent presentation of original competition cars from twelve decades,” says Michael Bock, Head of Mercedes-Benz Classic.
