Great video. Beautiful landscapes that match how great the Benzes that are being driven. I love both the old and new Mercedes. The brand's history is awesome and it's smart of them to play it up.

I'll never get tired looking at those old SL's, love them, basically a fine piece of rolling art.

I'm not sure if I've ever had the chance to see one in person. Do any of you guys know how rare they are? Anecdotal evidence is fine.

They are indeed rare, not something you'd typically see rolling around on the street

I actually see a silver gullwing all the time -- an older guy in my neighborhood owns one and drives it around surprisingly often! I think it's great to see the car being used!

I wonder how eas/hard it is to keep in good working order. I imagine that replacement parts are likely hard to find.

Many parts can be sourced for even classic Mercedes. Mercedes demonstrates a commitment to its older cars that is really remarkable among modern automakers.

Mercedes frequently produces spare parts for old models in batches if there's enough demand.

I noticed more car makers are doing this, opening up classic vehicle programs, some british or german car maker just opened theirs... I think it was jaguar.
