Elegant cabriolets and sporty roadsters are among the highlights of Mercedes-Benz’s model history. At the Salon Rétromobile in Paris, Mercedes-Benz Classic is shining the spotlight on this tradition combining design, sportiness and comfort. The vehicle exhibits range from the luxurious 300 S from 1956 and the 280 SE 3.5 Cabriolet from 1969 to two SL sports-car classics in the shape of the 300 SL Roadster from 1959 and the 280 SL from 1968 to the new S-Class Cabriolet (A 217). The Salon Rétromobile in Paris is the first major classic-car show of the international season and takes place in the Paris Exhibition Centre at Porte de Versailles from 3 to 7 February 2016. Mercedes-Benz Classic is exhibiting on Stand K 064 in Pavillon 1.
Mercedes-Benz has been making the dream of sporty motoring in luxurious open-top cars come true for generations. Mercedes-Benz Classic is showcasing this unique historic dimension at the Salon Rétromobile with a journey through time, focussing on the culture of the Stuttgart brand's cabriolet and roadster models. A total of six cars can be seen on the stand, which encapsulates the feel of open-top driving with its filigree and airy architecture.
