Mercedes to Offer Special Experience to UK Journalists
"Mercedes-Benz is unique among vehicle manufacturers in that it offers a wide range of test drive experiences, and that’s just what it promises at the annual motoring media event being held at Millbrook Proving Ground on 27 May 2010,” stated the press release.
The newest models in Mercedes’ passenger cars and commercial vehicles ranges will be available to drive on Milbrook’s famous Bowl, Alpine Route and off-road course. The vehicle line-up includes: the new E-Class Estate, the new smart fortwo BRABUS tailor made cabrio, smart fortwo cdi coupe, Sprinter 4x4, Atego 7.5-tonne rigid, and Actros 6x2 tractor unit.
"For a modest monetary contribution, test drives and passenger rides will be available in the awesome Unimog U4000 fire engine (with flashing lights) and Actros 2546, with all proceeds going to the charity ‘Women on the Move against Cancer’ (WOMAC). And, in keeping with last year’s Vito Taxi meter donation, Mercedes-Benz will be pleased to match all monies raised on the day in support of this important cause. The suggested minimum donation per seat is £2 – cheaper than a daily cappuccino – although generosity is encouraged!” added the press release.
In addition to that, Mercedes will bring its passenger cars and commercial vehicle PR teams to the event, giving representatives of the media the chance to meet all their members.
