The new Mercedes-Benz opened its doors to the public on May 20: I there on the 24th, 4 days This is an old thread I just dug up and to post here.

To say it was an amazing is an understatement. The visit to this showed me really just a great car company Mercedes-Benz is. There was so much to see about these guys have you couldn’t help but feel — and if you’re a Benz fan me, proud. All the cars, race trucks, buses and ship and engines…it was amazing. I’d to take a trip there – and an entrance fee of Euros 4 was a good deal. They had a newly built parking under the museum that housed some interesting like the CLK500 “Giorgio I photographed (check the album).

The was pretty impressive on the outside. not much of an architect, but the design fresh and modern and also It didn’t really look but rather sleek. But once you got you really got to experience the size of the Next to the museum, there’s a Mercedes dealership where I got my close up glance at the R-Class. To be it isn’t that bad looking in but I still would never get one it is massive and I’d prefer an or an M-Class anyway.

The cars are the I showed up and they had plenty of there. The journey begins on the top (8th floor) where you get to see the and Daimler cars from the 19th century. At this Benz and Daimler hadn’t yet (in 1926 as a result of the Great in Europe they do) so what you saw was a Daimler or a Benz. One level you see the cars from the early century. The condition of these masterpieces was amazing. In some you saw a 1/1 car – a car where there was one ever made! I was looking at here, history from the century or early 20th What a feeling that The layout of the museum takes you different time periods and the from that period. In time zone, they played the appropriate music the era. For example, in the area you see this beautiful red 1934 500K Spezial Roadster, played swing music. the W116 S-Class was, played a Bee Gees song!

The who visited were mostly There were some school kids that there on a tour, probably by DCX. I saw a lot of Asians there, Japanese, Chinese and Filipino’s. get me started on the Russians and Bulgarians, I track! [:P] Lastly, were also a few Germans, judging from the Swabian they had when they (Which I had trouble understanding! Hochdeutsch damn it! )

They had of a Gullwing, a 300SL Roadster and a “Uhlenhaut”, of which only 2 made. As usual, I had a heart when I saw the 500 and 540K’s, such cars. There was even a black 770 GroЯer Mercedes: who has seen a decent World War II will remember that car as a of the Nazis. Anyway, enjoy the and see for yourself what this has contributed and still is contributing. A to this place is a must! I you guys will have a respect for the brand after the pictures — even if you like the brand.

Be sure to out all the pictures on Imagestation! There are pictures inside which interest people. I also rather “crappy” pictures of my and the menu when I tried the (my salmon salad was pretty actually!) and the Mercedes-Benz tag they you for free when you get that machine.

Let the picture tour begin!

1928 Mercedes-Benz 27/170/225-PS Typ SSK This is one of Mercedes’ best sports cars of the era — and today. SSK stood for “Super Kurz” (kurz = short) and was developed for hillclimb races.

The car had an top speed (for the period) of 192 (119 mph). 35 SSK’s produced from 1928-1932.

1954 300S Convertible Typ A (W188 I): The was a very pricey and prestigeous car in its day. The Shah of Iran was one of the as well as various Hollywood stars. The 300S was produced for four years beginning in with only 560 leaving the gates. It used the same of the Gullwing but produced less and wasn’t slanted. 2996cc inline, 150-hp, 175 km/h mph).

1952 O-3500 Allwetter-Reiseomnibus: This was the Mercedes-Benz bus designed after War II (first appeared in 1949 and was until 1955).

In 1981, the became the first bus in the world to be with ABS. The popularity of the can be seen in the 25,778 units from 1974-1992. If you ask me, it looks too!

1980 Mercedes “City Bus”. The vehicle here was active from in Stuttgart covering a total of 600,000 miles. The body was built from 1967-1987. 6-cylinder diesel engine 240-horsepower and a top speed of 80 km/h (50

Any World War II aircraft fan know of the Messerschmidt BF-109, the fighter of the Luftwaffe until the end of War II. This DB-601 was one of the engines powered them. Being from 1937-1942, the DB-601 was fitted to the BF-109E / E-4 / E-4Z and some of the F-2 and F-4 successor models. It was the mass-produced aircraft engine to fuel-injection instead of carburator. inverted V12 engine with

300SL Gullwing, 300SL and the Uhlenhaut SLR. Took me to get these shots since crowded around these like nobody’s business! The SLR was only built twice. Uhlenhaut, technical director at MB in Munich but drove to work in everyday taking the Autobahns. then, the Autobahns were empty and had no speed limits. The took him an hour and 30 minutes! I to Stuttgart a few days ago from 3 hours and 45 minutes! Trust me, I was too!

1964 Mercedes-Benz “Fintail” (W110): The 220S and were the worlds first built with safety patented by Bйla Barйnyi, one of brightest safety engineers. The seen here has a 110-hp 6-cylinder inline engine.

Mercedes-Benz 300 Messwagen: I can see that car was based on the 300 “Adenauer Mercedes” of the Mercedes used this car to performance and technical data their cars. In this the 300 Messwagen would be collecting from the 220S Fintail it is up” to. This is the only ever built: another 1/1

1964 Mercedes-Benz 230SL (W113): I am quoting the sign “the 230SL was the world’s sports car with a sturdy cell and crumple zones”. All came with 6-cylinder the 230SL, 250SL and 280SL all had and similar performances despite the badges. The 250SL was the slowest of the with a top speed of 195 km/h to the other two’s 200 km/h mph). The name “Pagoda” from Asian temples which many people see in the hardtop.

1972 Mercedes-Benz 6.3 (W108): The 300SEL 6.3 first in 1968 and immediately made with its impressive performance. The 6.3 V8 engine produced 250-horsepower and the car was for being able to trounce sports cars of the day. The 6.3 was fitted with power-steering, RPM automatic transmission and many extras – all these had to be ordered almost all other during the 1960s!

1985 300TD (S123): The ‘123 is by far my most treasured Mercedes car I just love these a passion be it a 200D or a 280E. The was the second most powerful estate in the lineup (the Turbodiesel eclipsed it) and was meant for leisure. Its modern day equivalent be the new E280 CDI, while the Turbodiesel would find its sibling to be the E320 CDI.

Mercedes-Benz “Experimentier-Sicherheits-Fahrzeug” ESF-22: ESF into “Experimental-Safety-Vehicle”. The car was based on the S-Class (which appeared in and was used to study and improve in Mercedes passenger cars. The car you see is the ESF-22 ever made “the original”!). Interestingly Mercedes stuffed a detuned V8 with 195-horsepower into the It also had an automatic transmission.

1980 Mercedes-Benz 300SD (W116): The W116 300SD was only sold in North because it helped bring Mercedes’ overall fuel figures in this market in with the CAFE laws. It was not fast (0-62 mph took seconds) but delivered good and fuel economy. As the car was only in North America, it is no wonder it has the by US law mandated sealed-beam headlights and bumpers. The engine was 3005cc motor taken from the 300D, but fitted with a exhaust-turbocharger and produced 125-horsepower instead of the N/A versions 88-hp. The Turbodiesel came with a automatic transmission and topped out at an (for a heavy diesel of the 170 km/h (106 mph). The W116 S-Class was produced 1977 to 1980. 28,634 produced. The W116 continues to be my S-Class – ever. I love the styling of this car for reason. I’d sell the (W126) I have in a heartbeat for a [:sun:]

1984 Mercedes-Benz 2.0 (W201): The 190-series first in 1982 and quickly earned the “Baby Benz”. It was offered both diesels and gasoline and was a smashing success for Mercedes. The C-Class wouldn’t exist if it been for the groundbreaking success of the This 190E has the 2.0 (1997cc) with 122-horsepower.

1988 200D (W124): The W124 was in Europe with many engines. This is the absolute engine choice available, a 200D (1997cc 4-cylinder N/A which continued the Benz of offering an economical, durable and car. This particular has the hood of a facelifted W124 but the body, including rear and are all 1985-1993 W124 spec. 200D also has over 1.9 km (1.6 million miles) on the accumulating these by working 14 as a taxi in Portugal.

Notice the AMG rims and the AMG body kit treatment side gills inspired by the SL-Class, which existed the same time. 5987cc V12 394-horsepower.

Mercedes-Benz A 160 CDI 75hp W168

1998 Mercedes-Benz Turbodiesel (W463): This was used by its owner all over the on off road tours. I am a bit baffled why the said “1998” when the style is clearly a 1980s and the term “290GD” is pre-1993. A on the MB Museum part perhaps? 5-cylinder turbodiesel with and a top speed of 137 km/h (85 mph).

Mercedes-Benz C32 AMG T-Modell Medical Car This C32 AMG was used as the safety car for One races from 2001 to It has space for a driver and three and their equipment. 3.2-l V6, 354-hp and a 5-speed automatic This model had its limited and can top 280 km/h (174 mph).

It was luck that the car survived War II.

1980 Mercedes-Benz 500SLC (C107): The SLC remains one of the least of older Mercedes’. In my heart there’s a special place for baby. Better-looking that the SL, I just love the lazy low look of the car. It’s one of cars you just want to get and cruise around, with no destination in mind. The plaque that “In December of Bjцrn Waldegaard and Hans drove this 500SLC to 1st in the 3,315-mile-long Bandama Rally Coast). Their teammates in 500SLC finished in 2nd place.

1969 C111: This body was used to test rotary Mercedes’ had been working on. The Type II pictured here has a Wankel engine with that could accelerate the car to 100 in 4.7 seconds – stunning for a late 1960s prototype moreover one equipped with a engine. Quite a few customers the cars styling (many that this would be the SL) and handed in blank checks, all in as the car remained a prototype. Mercedes legend, Bruno Sacco said: “I loved the because it didn’t look a Mercedes at all.” The C111 II also had Gullwing doors. It one of my favorite Mercedes’ cars as

1996 Mercedes F200 I remember this car as if it had come out I was in high school and this just blew me away. I Mercedes would make a that would look this, except have a wheel! The F200 Imagination was by a joystick on both doors giving both drivers the to steer the car. The W140 and R129 SL-Class 394-hp V12 the concept car. The only aspect of the car that advanced the headlights. W220 S-Class a bell?

I read on his license plate since the from Stuttgart to Munich slow going because of Max speed I travelled home at was a 160 km/h (100 mph).
