There is a lesson there about parking (or stopping) a modern car in long grass. I heard a similar story about 20 years ago with a very expensive Jaguar on loan to a journalist. The Jag was driven through some thick lawn clippings on a wet road the clippings dispersed themselves into the engine bay. An outright fire was avoided but the car was smoking when stopped for fuel.

I like what mercedes are doing here with design... if life could just be so simple .... I've always liked the simplicity of older classic cars... I do hope one day styling could return in that sense. ps current mercedes is about 100 miles off from this with senses overload ! so some ways to go...

"In 1901 at Race Week in Nice, our visionary Emil Jellinek debuted a high performance car that the world had never seen - the Mercedes 35 PS.

This week, our team unveiled the Vision Mercedes Simplex, a representation of our transition into a new era of design, with the same passion for luxury and innovation running through our DNA."

That is one gorgeous car!!👌

 

My parents owned a humble but brilliant Peugeot 404 at one stage and it was a Pininfarina design. Laugh at me but I can see shades of that in this.....especially the front.🙂

1967 -- Great film showing the dominance of Bruce McLaren's team in the Can Am series.  McLaren himself retires in this opening race of the season, his other car with Denny Hulme driving absolutely dominates. Three years later at Goodwood Circuit, Bruce dies in a crash whilst testing his M8A race car. 

 

Watch for the footage of Frank Matich at 11:00 minutes... Enjoy..

I remember many races where I had the joy of watching "The Bruce and Denny Show". It was a great time for motor racing.

“When I paid £35,000 for the 250 GTO in 1977, I felt stupid to be spending so much — I didn’t think it would be worth £30m in 2016. ---- Nick Mason 
 

...Suggest the car is worth closer to 40m today....

Installed my new Carbon fiber/leather steering wheel last night.
Man this thing is nice!
About twice as fat as my older steering wheel, and feels incredible!
