Όπως ανακοίνωσε η Daimler, το μουσείο της Mercedes-Benz πλέον πουλά απευθείας κλασικά αυτοκίνητα. Το πρόγραμμα ονομάζεται “All Time Stars” και χωρίζεται σε τρεις υποκατηγορίες Premium Edition, Collectors Edition και Drivers Edition.
Η Premium προσφέρει αυτοκίνητα με ελάχιστα χιλιόμετρα και σε εξαιρετική αρχική κατάσταση, με τα συγκεκριμένα αυτοκίνητα να έχουν αποκατασταθεί πλήρως από την Mercedes-Benz Classic. Η κατηγορία Collectors Edition διαθέτει αυτοκίνητα τα οποία βρίσκονται σε άριστη κατάσταση τόσο από τεχνικής όσο και από οπτικής πλευράς, ενώ η Drivers Edition κατηγορία διαθέτει Vintage μοντέλα και σύγχρονα κλασσικά μοντέλα σε άριστη τεχνική κατάσταση, αλλά εξακολουθούν να χρειάζονται εργασίες αποκατάστασης.
Μπορείς να δεις τα αυτοκίνητα που προσφέρονται στο λινκ της πηγής και ανάμεσά τους ξεχωρίζει μια από τις 12 E 60 AMG Limited του 1994. Έχει διανύσει 74.800 χλμ και πωλείται έναντι του ποσού των 189.000 ευρώ. Φορά έναν V8 6,0-λίτρων κινητήρα απόδοσης 381 ίππων, με τα 0-100 χλμ/ώρα να τα κάνει σε 5,4 δευτερόλεπτα, με την τελική ταχύτητα να περιορίζεται ηλεκτρονικά στα 250 χλμ/ώρα.
Mercedes-Benz Museum selling classic cars directly: ‘All Time Stars’: modern classics and vintage greats from Mercedes-Benz
Stuttgart, Nov 05, 2015
The Mercedes-Benz Museum is now selling classic cars from all periods under the name All Time Stars. The complete range can be seen on the website alltime-stars.com. You can also view the vehicles in person at the Mercedes-Benz Museum and arrange the purchase there too. A team of sales consultants are on hand to provide detailed information and extensive descriptions of the vehicles in order to offer as much transparency as possible.
Buying a classic car is a matter of trust. It has to be. Otherwise what is often supposed to be a dream come true may in fact turn sour. The All Time Stars by Mercedes-Benz aim to extend the brand’s extensive quality commitment to the purchase of classic cars. The focus is on vehicles that are suitable for everyday driving. And maximum transparency is the objective: the experts at the Mercedes-Benz Museum subject each vehicle to a thorough inspection based on a comprehensive 160-item checklist. This allows any defects or blemishes to be identified and recorded in detail in the prospectus. The consultants also know exactly what has been modified – and what has stayed the same – since the vehicle was handed over to its very first owner.
The All Time Stars reflect the huge diversity of Mercedes-Benz vehicles over the ages. The range features all cars made by Mercedes-Benz and its predecessor brands. The oldest model that is currently available is a Type 630 Kompressor from 1929; the newest is an E 320 convertible made in 1995.
The three vehicle editions
All vehicles are categorised into three editions that describe their condition and authenticity: – Premium Edition: classic cars in rare original condition with very few miles on the clock and vehicles that have been lovingly restored by the experts at Mercedes-Benz Classic in Fellbach/Stuttgart. – Collectors Edition: these cars are in excellent condition both technically and visually. Their patina gives them a particularly special character. – Drivers Edition: vintage vehicles and modern classics suitable for everyday driving and for people who want to tinker. These cars are in excellent technical condition but still offer potential for further restoration work.
All Time Stars – vehicle highlights
The Mercedes-Benz 630 first went on sale in October 1928 for a price of 2,000 reichsmark. It was also available in a K model with a more powerful 6.3-litre engine that produced 120 kW (160 hp). Customers’ interest quickly shifted to this variant. Several years ago, the vehicle available from All Time Stars was converted to an open-top tourer and had its engine refurbished. It has a Fiva international identity card and is in immaculate condition.
The E 320 convertible is an export version with only around 31,000 miles on the clock. This is immediately obvious from its immaculate condition. This four-seater convertible can be used for everyday driving as soon as it leaves our showroom – and it’s as stylish as they come. The car is fitted with lots of extras, including the much sought-after leather upholstery.
There is also a Mercedes-Benz 280 SE available, which was restored at Mercedes-Benz Classic Service & Parts. The car has a seldom colour combination and only 86.000 kilometers on the clock.
