Classic Photos from the Mercedes-Benz Archive; Edition #1


Classic Photos from the Mercedes-Benz Archive; Edition #1
By Marrs

We are unveiling a new series today, featuring archival images, new and old, from the official Mercedes-Benz library. Today we feature an image from the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance depicting a trio of 1914 Grand Prix race cars that competed together in Lyon, France one hundred years earlier, in 1914.

From the 2014 press release;
"Another theme of this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is the French Grand Prix of 1914.  On July 4, 1914, Mercedes-Benz celebrated an epic one-two-three victory near Lyon.  The three remaining examples of this legendary race car will be reunited in a specially created judging class, including the winning vehicle from 1914.  The Grand Prix cars come from the collections of George Wingard, the Collier Collection and the Mercedes-Benz Classic."
