- Fascinating original Mercedes-Benz vehicles take to the streets
- Famous faces: David Coulthard, Jochen Mass, Bernd Mayländer and Karl Wendlinger
Stuttgart/Brescia – Mille Miglia (16 to 19 May 2013) is one of the highlights in the calendar of classic car enthusiasts the world over. Alongside many other vintage models, Mercedes-Benz Classic will once again be at the starting line this year with the legendary 300 SLR and will also be publishing current videos of the event online.
Mercedes-Benz and Mille Miglia are inextricably linked. Second place in 1952 for Karl Kling behind the wheel of a 300 SL racing car (W 194), for example, symbolised the successful return of the Mercedes-Benz brand to the international racing stage. Memories of the legendary victory of Rudolf Caracciola also come to mind: together with his co-driver Wilhelm Sebastian, the Mercedes-Benz driver became the first non-Italian to win the Mille Miglia in his SSKL model in April 1931.
