From hand-cranked antiques to modern Formula 1 cars and everything in between.
Whether you enjoy auto racing or not, motorsports has been around nearly as long as the automobile itself. Mercedes-Benz, in one form or another, has been a juggernaut in competition for much of the past 125 years, from its legendary Silver Arrows to its domination in Formula 1's current hybrid era and much more. In no small feat of logistics and preparation, Mercedes recently dusted off all of its greatest classic and contemporary racers-and summoned many of its best drivers-for some on-track fun at the Silverstone Circuit in the United Kingdom. While entire books have been devoted to many of these particular cars, we had a golden ticket to experience them all up close in the span of a day. These are the highlights.
