Mercedes-Benz World, Weybridge, UK

It's been a while since my last blog entry. There was not much photoshoot being done and I was in the midst of relocating to UK temporarily. However, there is no setback in making full use of the opportunity of being in another country, which is why I grabbed the chance to visit this excellent location after getting to know of it from a colleague.

Mercedes-Benz World is basically a massive Mercs dealership like what you can find in Naza World. However, besides having all the greatest and latest Mercs cars on display for sale, it has its own tracks for racing, driving & off-road experience and as well as providing services for kids to learn how to drive.

It is also a Mercs museum. It houses the first Mercs ever built until the supercars of today. There are even a few F1 cars on display.

On the day of the visit, a special exhibition was being displayed there. It was the F1 Exhibition featuring an exploded view of a real F1 car. Basically an F1 car was dismantled to each individual part and then hung at the display area.

Besides the cars and the exhibition, visitors have the opportunity to be in an AMG powered Mercs either as a passenger or a driver on the track. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is also available for hire. It is an experience not to be missed. It was great fun being swung around in an AMG S63 Saloon.

If you ever are in the UK around London and love cars, do try and drop by this location. Did I forget to mention that entrance is FREE? More information about Mercedes-Benz World can be found at its official website and its location on Google Maps here.
