"The second day of track action at the 22nd running of the Goodwood Festival of Speed saw some of the rarest Mercedes-Benz models ever created being unleashed as well as the global public debut of the latest addition to the current range – the new generation CLS-Class. On the Goodwood Hill, the Silver Arrows in the form of the W 125, the W 165 R, the W 165 R Streamliner and a more contemporary Silver Arrow, a MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One car from 2012 proved to be crowd favourites. For sheer drama, the epically loud (and very orange) SLS AMG GT3 S proved difficult to beat while the beautiful 300 SLS took on the Hill. Away from the track, the Mercedes-Benz Exhibition stand proved a hit, with visitors being able to get up close to modern road and race cars from Mercedes-Benz as well as experiencing the sensation of lapping Silverstone in the current MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS W05 formula one car via Oculus Rift devices. Drivers extending back through 120 years of motorsport participation were celebrated in a display running the length of the Exhibition stand."
