Motorworld Classics 2016: All Time Stars takes stock after one year.
Mercedes-Benz Classic and All Time Stars played a big part in the successful premiere of the Motorworld Classics show in Berlin last year – and this year is once again presenting with numerous vehicles on display at the historic exhibition centre next to Berlin’s ‘Funkturm’ (a former broadcasting tower). The event, which runs from 6 to 9 October 2016, is once again featuring a large number of the officially recognised Mercedes-Benz brand clubs.
“Last year’s Motorworld Classics exhibition was a truly memorable experience for us. It’s an impressive show in terms of its atmosphere and its visitor concept”, said Christian Boucke, Head of Mercedes-Benz Classic. “This is why we are expanding our presence at the show in 2016, with particular emphasis on our All Time Stars vehicle marketplace, which was likewise launched a year ago. It boasts an impressive record to date”.
All Time Stars is the vehicle trading arm of the Mercedes-Benz Museum and has sold around 50 vehicles since its launch in 2015. The line-up ranges from young classics to pre-war classics. Sale prices for the vehicles sold to date likewise vary wildly, ranging from €9900 for a Mercedes-Benz 200 D from the 123 series to €2 million for a Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK-LM racing car. A 300 SL Roadster from the legendary 198 series sold for just under this at €1.8 million. Vehicles from the 1960s and 1980s are particularly popular with customers. Stock replenishment is necessary to make the business a success: All Time Stars is constantly on the look-out for high-quality vehicles to create an ideal range for its customers to choose from.
