Magnificent Motors for Beaulieu’s Simply Mercedes debut

The stylish luxury cars of Mercedes-Benz will be the stars of Beaulieu's brand new Simply Mercedes on Sunday August 18th when they meet for the brand new event in the grounds of the National Motor Museum.

Eagerly anticipated by German car fans, Simply Mercedes is open to all ages and models from the marque’s distinguished history. From sporty roadsters and luxury saloons to rugged off-roaders and hard-working commercial vehicles, all are invited to park up in the rally which will honour one of the world’s most respected car makers.

Expect to see a selection from landmark post-war models such as the stylish fintail and ‘Ponton’ saloons, through the iconic 300SL ‘Gullwing’, classic ‘Pagoda’ sports car and popular W123 saloons, to the modern-day A-Class, S-Class, G-Class and X-Class, as well as class-leading Sprinter van and the all-terrain G-Wagen and Unimog. All Mercedes are welcome to join the show.

The Mercedes-Benz Club will be out in force, bringing a selection of its members’ prestigious cars.

Visitors and event-goers will be able to vote for their favourite Mercedes of the show in the People’s Choice Award, with the winner receiving a Beaulieu trophy.
