Time travel with the S-Class.
With a choice selection of famous S-Class models, at the Classic Days Mercedes-Benz Classic took visitors through the long history of luxury segment vehicles from the Stuttgart-based brand. Former racing greats Hans Herrmann, Dieter Glemser and Baroness Ewy von Korff-Rosqvist accompanied the cars. Among the legends displayed, there was a Mercedes-Benz 220 (W 180), which raced in the Mille Miglia in 1956. There was also a Mercedes-Benz 300 SE (W 112). This won long-distance races from Argentina to Germany in 1963 and 1964. The Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.8 paid its respects too.
This racing limousine, nicknamed the “Red Sow” was the surprise winner of its class at the 24-hour race in Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium, in 1971, and came an outstanding second place overall. Less surprising were the reactions of the connoisseurs present at Schloss Dyck: The exhibition elicited widespread enthusiasm.
