Default PICS: Mercedes-Benz Classic Car Parade in Mumbai. December 13, 2015

The Mercedes-Benz Classic Car Rally 2015 was held in Mumbai today. The participating cars drove from Nariman Point in South Mumbai to Kala Nagar, Bandra and back via Walkeshwar, Haji Ali, Worli Sea Face and Bandra-Worli Sea Link.

Like last year, the cars were lined up opposite the NCPA, next to the Trident Hotel:

The star attraction of the show was this replica of the Motorwagen made my Karl Benz in the 1880s:

Those who attended last year's rally will find many familiar cars in this year's report.

This 1937 170V still runs without a hiccup:

This 4-door convertible is majestic. However, it broke down during the drive and had to complete its journey on a flatbed:

The rally did not have some of the attractions that last year's edition had. Still, it was good to see these old beauties on the road together once again. Of course, it also served as another opportunity to meet old friends and fellow enthusiasts.

Here's a BHPian having a good time:

Looking forward to the 2016 edition of the parade.

Absolutely fantastic coverage, thanks! As many modern car designs get increasingly over the top, it's almost therapeutic to see machines with such elegance and class up and running. The event may not have some of the attractions seen last year, but plenty of eye candy nonetheless. My jaw dropped when I saw these two one behind the other:

My dad's boss had the same cars in the same colours (albeit LHDs). A cream 124 was the very first Mercedes I ever went for a drive in as a kid!

Wonderful snaps. Thank you for the great coverage. It was fun to participate. Grateful to Autocar for keeping this going after the kick-off last year.

Superb coverage Addy! I agree with you that some pre war cars that were there last year were missing! I am not sure why? Autocar and Mercedes made this an absolutely democratic platform where many clubs and associations participated cordially shoulder to shoulder. But as you said there is always a next year and we will work with Autocar and Mercedes to make it larger. Our city and its enthusiasts deserve to see these beauties on the road and we must do what we can!

Those cars are nothing short of marvelous! Such pristine machines, kudos to the owners for taking good care of them.

If only we had a drool emoticon on t-bhp.

And to think I am wondering on whether should I continue with my 60k km run car or not.

Hats off to the owners, as well as for the superb pics!!
