Looking Back at the Carl-Benz-Tour

The start of the first " Carl Benz Tour " by Mercedes-Benz Classic Car Travel took place in the Classic Center in Fellbach. A heart of Daimler AG is located in these charming industrial buildings from the turn of the century - the global center for the spare parts trade and the restoration of Mercedes-Benz vehicles.


The shiny Mercedes-Benz fleet is ready for the start of the tour.

The Guests in the Hallowed Halls of Mercedes-Benz

Those in the know refer to the buildings as the "holy halls": Crowned heads from distant countries appear here with the appropriate entourage in order to be able to work their way up the long waiting list.
A team of more than 32 selected mechanics takes care of the restoration of vehicles, in some cases they even work on almost complete reconstruction of racing cars that were believed to be lost or other pre-war bodies with a star.
A brand expert and former Mercedes-Benz manager provides an entertaining tour of the various areas and impressively explains the history and development of the vehicles using individual restoration objects.
To be listed here is a privilege reserved for owners of collectibles worth millions. An impressive introduction to their journey for lovers of the brand and guests of Classic Car Travel.
