The film "The Mercedes-Benz passenger cars of the 50s and 60s" was highly praised in the automotive press.
Here are some excerpts:
OLDTIMER-MARKT: "... and see how minimal the impact of the W108 dashboard is on the heads of the crash dummies. Just the fact that the
advertising is so old fashion, makes this film so sympathetic and entertaining. Even touching scenes are not lacking, and can
cause you to shed tears, when a W111-Coupé with a rocket drive crashes into the guard
Auto Journal: " Above all, the technical details and special features of these cars are precisely explained in original black-and-white recordings. A Must-have for Mercedes-Benz fans"
Auto Forum: " The atmosphere of the advertising world about the Mercedes-Benz of the 50s and 60s will come alive in this video."
Autohaus: " A piece of contemporary history."
