“Our collection comprises around 1,000 cars and grows by around 30 further vehicles each year. It’s spread across eleven locations in the Stuttgart region.” And, as is the case here in the Motorsport Hall, there’s not a single thing missing – well, except space, that is! “The tight nature of these halls is a major logistical challenge,” he explains. Each year, the collection sees around 1,100 movements: some involve taking the vehicles to driving days, trade fairs, events or special exhibitions in the Mercedes-Benz Museum. Or in some cases, they are simply brought into the nearby workshop for maintenance. As the collection is in constant movement, no vehicle has a permanent parking spot: cars returning to the collection are simply parked wherever there happens to be a free space.
