Aside from a tribute to the SL Roadster, Mercedes-Benz will also be putting on display its Concept Style Coupe at the Concours d’Elegance on August 16. The automaker will have three original 1954 300SL’s on its stand during the Pebble Beach weekend. Visitors will get to view the entire heritage of the roadsters, demonstrating how the car has progressed when it comes to design and technology.

For those who get excited about performance, several AMG cars like the SLS AMG and C63 AMG Black-Series will be presented. Mercedes emphasized that 17 AMG vehicles, which produce between 415hp and 621hp, will be arriving in the U.S. market. Mercedes has scheduled test drives on August 16 and 17 for its SL63 AMG at the Quail gathering.

The Concept Style Coupe will be seen at Pebble Beach, showing us how the future generation will appear. This coupe exhibits the new Mercedes design language and is a preview to the forthcoming CLA four-door coupe. Powering the car is a 211-hp turbocharged four-cylinder, and one-of-a-kind headlights with inventive signals. Mercedes also said that to be auctioned off this weekend are several collector cars.
