From: Vodafone Your Mercedes trip has started! Its Sep 1900 and you are sitting next to Carl Benz who just got the inspiration to name his first car Mercedes. Wonder why? Mercedes was the name of his partners daughter Emil Jellinek. Here’s a photo of how the real Mercedes looked like!
From: Vodafone You have already gained 1000 klms! You’ve arrived at 1958 and you’re sitting next to Grace Kelly and heading toward Beverly Hills in her brand new 190 SL. Grace Kelly bought this car despite criticism that she should be driving an American car. Check out both beauties ;-)
From: Vodafone Its 1970 and you’re rocking with 1500 klms! You’re standing next to Janis Joplin as she sings ‘Oh Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz?’ She ended up buying a Porsche but that’s another story. Click here to download the song
From: Vodafone You’re fast! You’ve travelled 2000 klms and it’s a rainy day in 1980 in the Vatican. You’re sitting next to the Pope John Paul II in his heavily armoured Mercedes 230G also known as the Popemobile. Probably the most unique car ever built…a bit funny though
From: Vodafone Now its getting very interesting! 5,000 klms and 88 years since the beginning of your journey. Its 1988. You’ve gone out drinking with your buddy Richard Gere in American Gigolo and flirting with all the girls. He lends you his SL500 to drive your date back home…
From: Vodafone 4,000 Klms travelled! You’re in for a treat! You are in London in 1991 in the Knightsbridge Mercedes dealer when Lady Diana picks up her new SL500. Lady D was the first member of the Royal family to buy a foreign car. Unfortunately a few months later the Royals forced her to return it…
From: Vodafone We bet you can’t guess what happens next! 10,000 klm later you are being attacked by a Tyrannosaurus Rex in Spielberg’s 1997 blockbuster hit Lost World. You are pretty lucky though cause you jump in your specially converted ML320 and get the hell out. It’s a good thing this car starred in the movie!
From: Vodafone 12,000 klms is a long way from home! 2006 in Soho NY. You’re waiting for a cab outside Soho Club and guess who wants to pick you up. Paris Hilton in her brand new grey SLR McLaren. Better not get in as she’s gonna crash the car in 10 minutes…close but no cigar
