The S-Class – deeply rooted in the history of brand.
The unique tradition of the S-Class came to life at the Retro Classics 2013 in Stuttgart in exhibits from all eras of Mercedes-Benz premium and luxury vehicles and the predecessor brands. The selection of exhibits underscored how deeply the S-Class is rooted in the history of the brand – far beyond the more recent model series history that began in the 1950s. Mercedes-Benz Classic brought a particularly spectacular showpiece from the Mercedes-Benz Museum to the Retro Classics 2013: the Mercedes-Simplex 60 HP from 1904, which was the touring saloon for Emil Jellinek, businessman and father of Mercedes Jellinek, whose name the motor car bears. Also on display from the company’s collection were a Typ Nürburg 460 from 1929 and a Typ 770 “Großer Mercedes” dating back to 1931.
The brand clubs enhanced the vehicle exhibit with motor cars from before World War II such as the Typ Mannheim or the Typ 500 K. Exhibits from the more recent vehicle history were also represented.
