Iconic Silver Star machines scheduled to appear at the four-day event include a 1914 Grand Prix racing car, W 125 and W 165 Silver Arrows, a 1957 300 SLS, a 1981 500 SL rally car, 1994 Penske-Mercedes PC 23 IndyCar and a 1998 CLK-LM. The AMG Vision Gran Turismo will be on static display, while the Mercedes-Benz exhibition will offer visitors a trio of Oculus Rift experiences, including a 360-degree experience of the 1.16-mile hillclimb and drifting with Lewis Hamilton in an E 63 AMG S Wagon.
