Imagine viewing some of the most influential and exciting European and the American concept cars from the early 1930s to the 21st century.
On June 28, 2014 you will have an opportunity to do just that at the High Museum of Art in downtown Atlanta. In addition we will be able to display up to 15 of our Mercedes-Benz vehicles in the Callaway plaza from 8:30 am to 11:30 am. After this impromptu show we will move the cars to the museum parking deck and proceed to the museum to view the exhibition. Members and guests will be eligible for a special $10.00 group entry ticket. Afterwards we’ll meet and have an early dinner at a nearby midtown restaurant.
About Dream Cars
This major exhibition of innovative automotive design will bring together nineteen concept cars from across Europe and the U.S., including some of the rarest and most imaginative cars designed by Ferrari, Bugatti, General Motors and Porsche.”Dream Cars” will feature cars from the early 1930s to the 21st century that pushed the limits of imagination and foreshadowed the future of design. The exhibition will pair conceptual drawings, patents and scale models with realized cars, demonstrating how their experimental designs advanced ideas of progress and changed the automobile from an object of function to a symbol of future possibilities.
Highlights of “Dream Cars” will include:
- L'Oeuf Électrique (1942), Paul Arzens' electric bubble car, which was designed for use in Paris during the German occupation and has never before traveled to the U.S.
- William Stout's Scarab (1936), the genesis of the contemporary minivan.
- The Lancia Stratos Zero (1970), a wedge-shaped car that is only 33 inches tall.
- Christopher Bangle's BMW GINA Light Visionary Model (2001), which has an exterior made of fabric.
- A full-scale (6 x 20 foot) rendering of a concept car by Carl Renner (1951).
Registration is required. Please indicate if you would like to have your car considered for the Special display of our Mercedes-Benz vehicles at the High Museum.
