Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance Celebrates Mercedes-Benz
Mercedes-Benz, founding sponsor of the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance, just celebrated 15 years of supporting one of the nation's most prestigious vintage car shows by featuring over 250 rare classics from seldom-seen private collections nationwide at the event, which took place on the grounds of the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island from March 12-14.
Among the amazing vehicles on display was the legendary Le Mans-winning 1952 300 SL and 1956 300 SL "Gullwing" Coupe, along with the 2011 SLS AMG. "The SLS AMG and Gullwing displays at the 15th anniversary of the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance are top examples of Mercedes-Benz historical significance and major contributions with the automobile industry," notes Stephen Cannon, VP of Marketing, MBUSA. "The iconic 1954 Gullwing represents the leading innovation Mercedes-Benz is known for throughout history and the SLS AMG sets a new standard for supercars of the future just like the 300 SL did over 50 years ago."
