Mercedes-AMG is in the mood to celebrate. On October 21st and 22nd of October, the AMG letter will be the focus of the Mercedes-Benz Museum, as historical and contemporary AMG vehicles will be on display in a special exhibition. Legendary DTM drivers will be special guests at the event, together with the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE.
Half a century after Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher created the power house that kept the the world of motor racing stop and stare, Mercedes-Benz is planning a special presentation, under the motto “AMG & Friends”, taking place on both days between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Legendary racing drivers Ellen Lohr, Klaus Ludwig and Karl Wendlinger and the current DTM star Maro Engel will mingle with the guests. The special exhibition itself (Collection room C5) will also be providing new insight over the weekend into the multi-faceted history of AMG: knowledgeable guides will be on hand in four thematic areas to provide facts and anecdotes about vehicles and the history of the brand.
The programme for the weekend also includes the display of numerous current models from the AMG portfolio in the outside areas as well as in the Atrium and Great Hall of the museum. They include a genuine Hollywood star: the Mercedes-AMG GT R from “The Last Knight”, the fifth instalment of the “Transformers” film series.
The special exhibition 50 Years of AMG will be open to the public from 20 October 2017 until 8 April 2018 at the Mercedes-Benz Museum. The leading parts will be played by ten standard-production and motorsport vehicles, together with eight engines dating back through the history of Mercedes-AMG. The Formula 1-inspired Mercedes-AMG Project ONE will be a show-stopper in Stuttgart.
