Exactly 18,042 readers awarded Mercedes-Benz first places in three “Classics” categories and three “Classics of the Future” categories. Daniel Lescow, Head of Business Unit Maybach, says: “It is an honour for me to receive the awards for the current models Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Mercedes-AMG SL and, of course, especially the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class.

This shows that our new models are also well received by classic vehicle experts and fans alike – and are already set to become classics in the future.”
