Mercedes-Benz Museum

It was highly recommended that I visit the Mercedes-Benz Museum when I visited Stuttgart. I am not a car buff, but the cars and the building architecture were amazing.
The above beauty is the 1902 Mercedes-Simplex 40 PS. It has 40 horsepower, 4 cylinders, and a top speed of 50mph (80 km/h).


The museum's huge interior highlights its prized auto collection.


Coined by the press, "Silver Arrow" refers to the Mercedes-Benz sports cars and its Formula One racing cars. It was amazing how these cars were displayed on a platform between two floors.

Congratulations on an interesting blog and thank you for sharing these fine photos. A member of trivago has added a link to your site. Perhaps you would care to also add some images directly at trivago?
