Mercedes-Benz Classic Car Rally to wow Mumbai once again, on December 13

by Autocar Pro News Desk , 04 Dec 2020

The Mercedes-Benz Classic Car Rally (MBCCR), which has, over the years, become part of Mumbai’s winter tradition, will be held on Sunday, December 13 at the Taj Lands End, Mumbai. 

The MBCCR, which was first organised by Autocar India in association with Mercedes-Benz in 2014, has grown into the country’s premier classic car show. A consistent and growing participation from owners of rare, impeccably maintained Mercedes-Benz cars has put the event on the global classic car enthusiasts’ map.

The seventh edition of MBCCR, which will adhere to strict COVID-19 regulations and protocols, will see a spectacular line of cars, including every generation of the Mercedes-Benz SL, S-Class and E-Class in almost every body style. These will be accompanied by several Mercedes-Benz convertibles made between 1950 and 1990, along with rare models such as the Nurburg and the 170V range. The participating cars will drive in a convoy over the Bandra-Worli Sea Link from Taj Lands End to Worli Dairy and back.

This year’s event, which will be graced by Anil Deshmukh, Home Minister of Maharashtra, is themed around resilience. It will salute Mumbai’s women frontline workers who have contributed to the fight against COVID-19. The frontline workers will be felicitated by Mr. Deshmukh.

“This year’s edition of the MBCCR will, as always, be a rolling museum on wheels. It will see cars as old as 100 years, and what better way to showcase resilience than with these classics which have withstood the test of time?” said rally curator and Autocar India classic car expert Perseus Bandrawalla.
