Snow covered peaks in the mid-summer July simply take our breath away. But if we put several supercars in this very scenery, the petrolhead onlookers shall be hyperventilating. And it’s not just any supercar we’re talking about. Maybe the Mercedes-Benz SLR Club rings a bell.
One of the most exclusive car clubs in the world made a… car reunion. Therefore, several Mercedes-Benz SLRs, together with some AMG-hearted special guests, toured the Austrian Alps in the “Feel the Difference 2015” tour. With frosty sky-high peaks, dead cold mountain lakes and centuries old palaces, the Salzkammergut area, a formal imperial resort in the Habsburg era, was the perfect location for the mad drive with fantastic panoramas.
Several SLR models, including the exclusive 722 Coupe and the 722 S Roadster versions, teamed up with some fierce looking AMG armada, including the super soldiers like the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMGs, a candy red Mercedes-AMG GT, an S65 AMG Coupe and a C-Class Estate for what could be the most exorbitant roadtrip ever made.
The exquisite drivers made their way to the small medieval town of Kitzbuhel, which is not the end, but the beginning of a new alpine adventure. Not one of those hectic drives run with the pedal to the metal, but one where the trip is more important than the destination.
The SLRs simply along one of the most spectacular roads in the whole wide world, the High Alpine Road, working its way up to the peak of Austria’s highest mountain, the 3.798-meter Grossglockner. The 48 kilometer road includes 36 bends and reaches a top altitude of 2.504 meters.
After three days on the road, the lucky drivers of the supercars packed up their horse power and went home bearing an unforgettable memory in the trunk.
