For six decades, the Mercedes-Benz SL Class has been one of the most iconic luxury sports cars on the market. In recognition of this, Mercedes-Benz is presenting a tribute to the SL (which designates “Super Light”) at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
Combining a mix of old and new, the Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge display (located on the third fairway at Pebble Beach) will feature six significant SL variants from the 1950s, including three 1952 W194 models, alongside the 2013 SL63 AMG
. The vintage cars will run with modern SLs in the Pebble Beach Tour d’Elegance, presented by Rolex.
Mercedes-Benz is also celebrating the 45th anniversary of the AMG brand
, so expect to see models like the SLS AMG Coupe and the C63 AMG Black Series
on display next to the models from the automaker’s past. To ensure that visitors enjoy the full AMG experience, Mercedes-Benz is offering test drives of various AMG models at the Quail Lodge.
As Mercedes-Benz embraces the future as well as the past, it will also be showing its Concept Style Coupe
, a four-door, futuristic luxury sport model powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine powering all four wheels. It’s expected that the Concept Style Coupe will see production as the CLC Class, due in showrooms next year.
If you’re in a buying mood, the luxury automaker is offering up a selection of cars restored by the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center, including a 1936 540K Cabriolet B, a 1963 190SL and a 1969 280SL.
