Rolling out the his­tory of the mighty Merc

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Big Wheels -

THE Mercedes Benz Club of Vic­to­ria will dis­play some of the lux­ury Ger­man brand’s finest work at Fed­er­a­tion Square on Sun­day, from 11am to about 2.30pm.

About 60 cars from through­out the com­pany’s his­tory— in­clud­ing pre-World War II mod­els, many SL con­vert­ibles, 6.3-litre V8s, 450 SEL 6.9s, Roundies, Fin­nies and even cur­rent mod­els— will be on show.

The Gull­wing (above), which be­came an icon not only for Mercedes-Benz fans but carlovers in gen­eral, will be spread­ing its wings. If you have never seen one up close, don’t miss this op­por­tu­nity.
