Leon, who likes to take long road trips, now grabs the key to the E 500. Linus, who is more into city trips, that of the 560 SEC. They’re off for a tour. Out of the city, through the hilly countryside. The brothers, who get along really well, have fun together, swap cars on the way and simply enjoy the momentary lightness of their being in mild temperatures. Later, in their “barn” near Stuttgart, where they often park the cars and meet other young classic car fans, they have another surprise up their sleeves: the furniture in the “lounge corner”, which is obviously very old, comes from Professor Hans Scherenberg’s living room, Linus tells us, as he drops into one of the armchairs with an ice cream in his hand. There is a second one. And a sofa to go with it, rust-brown fabric cover, good patina. Hans Scherenberg (1910–2000), as director of passenger car design and later Daimler-Benz chief engineer, was formative for many innovations and vehicles with the three-pointed star, such as the 300 SL (W 198). “Oh yes, the 300 SL, that would be something,” Linus muses and looks over at Leon with amusement. “The SL 55 AMG, green paint finish of course, would look pretty good to me too,” Leon replies. Dreams! But the two brothers have already fulfilled a few of them. And the next green one is sure to come.
