The Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany is expanding into sales of classic cars from all periods under the name All Time Stars. The All Time Stars by Mercedes-Benz will focus on vehicles suitable for everyday driving to Concours queens.
The team at the Mercedes-Benz Museum will subject each vehicle to an inspection based on a 160-item checklist, allowing any defects or blemishes to be identified and recorded in detail. The consultants also know exactly what has been modified — and what has stayed the same — since the vehicle was handed over to its first owner.
All vehicles are categorised into three editions that describe their condition and authenticity:
- Premium Edition: classic cars in original condition with few miles on the clock and vehicles that have been restored by the experts at Mercedes-Benz Classic in Fellbach/Stuttgart.
- Collectors Edition: these cars are in excellent condition both technically and visually. Their patina gives them a particularly special character.
- Drivers Edition: vintage vehicles and modern classics suitable for everyday driving and for people who want to tinker. These cars are in excellent technical condition but still offer potential for further restoration work.
The offerings at All Time Stars reflect the diversity of Mercedes-Benz vehicles over the ages, featuring all cars made by Mercedes-Benz and its predecessor brands. The oldest model that is currently available is a Type 630 Kompressor from 1929; the newest is an E 320 convertible made in 1995.
