Gold-Wrapped Mercedes-Benz Models Shuttle the Cannes Film Festival

The Cannes Film Festival is getting a shuttle service for the ages.
Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes AMG are celebrating the awarding of the 65th Palme d'Or (Golden Palm) at the Cannes Film Festival by providing a fleet of gold-wrapped models for shuttling celebrities and movie stars alike around the famous French city. The models are meant to give the movie stars the grandest of entrances on the red carpet. Mercedes will be active all week long during the event, with test drives open to the public of their latest models along the French Riviera.

The guest will be a gold Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG "45th Anniversary," marking the 65th anniversary of the SL model and the 45th anniversary of the founding of AMG.
