The purpose of automobiles is to overcome distances and bring people together – any time, anywhere. But the days when cars were little more than an engine mounted on four wheels are long since gone. Exceptional automobiles also satisfy high expectations in terms of their performance, safety, comfort and value retention. The ideal car will combine desirable features such as these to provide a very special quality experience.

Carl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler invented the automobile independently of one another in 1886. Since then, Mercedes-Benz has consistently developed cars with a combination of brand-specific fascination and traditional sense of responsibility that has turned many into icons of automotive history.

Mercedes-Benz take great pleasure in the enduring fascination classic cars convey and the enthusiasm private and institutional collectors from around the world set free. Over 120 years of automotive passion are all the incentive and commitment Mercedes-Benz needs to continue the great tradition of the brand and to carry on producing outstanding cars in the years ahead. Their heritage is a long now.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed has been supported by Mercedes-Benz as a main sponsor right from the start and has developed into one of the most significant events on the worldwide classic car calendar. This is where the aura of the Mercedes-Benz brand, developed over more than 120 years, comes into its own in the presence of spectators whose competence and enthusiasm is quite unique on a global scale.

Performance, safety, reliability and value retention – a good balance of qualities in every Mercedes-Benz

Racing and rally drivers expect their cars to deliver the performance, reliability and safety they require. Our other customers also look for long-term economic efficiency in their vehicles, as well as traditional Mercedes-Benz comfort.

Mercedes-Benz has, since 1886, consistently aimed to offer cars with a finely tuned blend of the required qualities deriving from a willingness to compete combined with the equally continuous interest in constant innovation in automotive design at the highest possible level. This performance output dates from the ideals established by Carl Benz – “The best of the good” and Gottlieb Daimler – “The best or nothing.”

At this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed Mercedes-Benz celebrates the 75th anniversary of the Silver Arrows. The collection of the Mercedes-Benz Museum provides original Grand Prix cars, starting with Manfred von Brauchitsch’s W 25 from 1934 to last year’s McLaren-Mercedes MP4-23 which Lewis Hamilton drove to another world championship for the German brand. The parade of Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrows inspires the spirit of Goodwood.

As inventors of the car, Mercedes-Benz wishes all participants every enjoyment in this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, which will be held at Goodwood, England, from 3rd - 5th July, 2009.
