Mercedes-Benz at the Goodwood Revival 2012

Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union racers from the 1930s took to the track for the first time at the Goodwood Revival between 14 and 16 September, some 75 years after the Silver Arrows first appeared in the UK. All the Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrows that appeared at the Goodwood Revival are original cars -- each with extensive racing history behind them. They were driven by ex-DTM driver Roland Asch, Le Mans winner Jochen Mass, five-times DTM champion Bernd Schneider, three-time Formula One World Champion Sir Jackie Stewart and his son, ex-F3000 racer and team manager Paul Stewart. Among the cars that appeared were the W 25 (1934), the W 125 (1937), a W 154 (1939) and a W 165 (1939). Power outputs range from the 254 hp of the 1.5-litre V8 W 165 to the 600 hp achieved by the mighty W 125. All were by far the most advanced machines of their kind with innovative suspension and drivetrains meaning they were highly successful and effective racing machines.

Goodwood Revival 2012 - Silver Arrows demonstration laps | Full HD stereo
Video by http://www.ClassicarGarage.nl - Goodwood Revival 2012. For the first time since the late 1930'ies the famous German 'Silver Arrows' returned on British soil. The impressive and then super high tech Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union racers can here be seen in some demonstration laps with their former competitors like ERA, Bugatti and Maserati. As the Goodwood speaker says at the beginning of the video: A once in a lifetime opportunity! The V12 and V16 'Silver Arrows' came from the Audi and Mercedes Museums, very unique and still giving me goose spots hearing and seeing those great cars lapping round Goodwood.

E 300 BLUETEC HYBRID SETS OUT ON AN ECONOMY CHALLENGE -- WITH A TWIST
The new Mercedes-Benz E 300 BlueTEC HYBRID is designed to be capable of combining performance and efficiency. In standard form it can accelerate from rest to 62mph in 7.5-seconds. It can achieve a maximum speed of 150 mph and can return 67 mpg while emitting as little as 109 g/km of CO2. To prove the theory in the real-world, the very first example of the car to arrive in the UK set out on an economy run -- with a twist -- to prove that driving fun and efficiency can be combined.

Mercedes-Benz SL Promo
With the completely redeveloped SL, Mercedes-Benz continues a tradition that began 60 years ago. The letters "SL" have ever since been synonymous with a symbiosis of sportiness, style and comfort -- and with groundbreaking innovations. The new SL has been produced for the first time almost entirely from aluminium and weighs up to 140 kilograms less than its predecessor. Its highly rigid all-aluminium bodyshell provides the basis for agile, sporty handling that has been taken to an entirely new level, coupled with exemplary roll characteristics and ride comfort. Even better driving dynamics come courtesy of the new BlueDIRECT engines; they are more powerful yet at the same time up to 29 per cent more economical than the engines in the outgoing generation. Other new features include the unique FrontBass system, which turns the luxury sports car into a concert hall regardless of whether the top is open or closed, and the highly efficient adaptive windscreen wipe/wash system MAGIC VISION CONTROL; it supplies water from the wiper blade as required and depending on the direction of wipe.
