Here it is :


UN Studio - Mercedes-Benz Museum, Stuttgart

Quote:
The Mercedes-Benz Museum is an automotive museum housed in Stuttgart, Germany. Stuttgart is the home to the Mercedes-Benz brand and headquarter of DaimlerChrysler. The building, designed by UN Studio, has a unique design comparable to a cloverleaf, consisting in geometric terms of three overlapping circles with the center cut out to form a triangular atrium. It was completed in 2006.
The museum was reportedly built at a cost of $192-million. The building's height and "double helix" interior design maximize space, allowing 16,500 square metres of exhibit space on a lot of just 4,800 square metres.The museum contains more than 160 vehicles.
An exhibition looking at the design of the museum was held at the Architecture Museum of Frankfurt which featured a detailed model of the building.
Free audio tours, in many languages, are provided to all visitors. Upon the conclusion of the audio tour, the headphones and Mercedes-Benz lanyard are given as a free gift.

Simple, not all Mercedes cars are silver, some are black too.

Oho - even I can look up stuff on answer.com baba. I meant, can he show us his own pictures. That makers it exciting. To have a BHPian there to share his visit and his excitement with the rest of us.

Imagine if you asked me if I had seen Pamela Anderson topless. I say no, can you show me? And you said OK and posted some internet photo of her. Doesn't work for me. You ask, you saw. lol.

Sighhh....what pictures Sam. Can only imagine what it must feel to be there, and also to feel, what the soon to follow pictures will tell. What a cliche' to say you're "so" lucky and i'm sure well deserving. Are you still in Germany or some part of Europe right now or back? If not enjoy the rest of your stay as well and ofcourse the M3 story is awaited.

Hello! Is it the new Stuttgart Mercedes museum in the photos in CLS_55_AMG's post?? I don't think so.
In fact, the last few photos are from this year's Auto show! Yes, that big show which happens in Frankfurt!

Oh. Sorry!
I was browsing a lot of sites and some downloading was happening in the background. That made the page load in broken pieces. Now, I get the full picture including the Stuttgart ones.
But, how did I miss the captions? Huh!
Yes! Maybe lack of sleep! But it isn't sunrise yet.
