DonCare CN Photoshoot – February 2020

We get asked more and more these days to supply cars for fashion photo and video shoots, which we take to mean that our favoured era of Mercedes cars are thought of as ultra-cool by the fashion influencers and consumers. We were recently asked to hire out a Red R107 SL for a shoot in the Manchester Northern Quarter by a company we hadn’t heard of called DonCare CN. Turns out they are a major Chinese casual clothing brand aimed squarely at young uber-cool dudes.

Usually a shoot uses several models, has 20 or 30 technical and artistic staff and comes complete with several van loads of photo, video, audio and lighting equipment, catering vehicles and a whole wardrobe of outfit changes. We were amazed that just five people strolled up to the street location they had asked us to meet them at. This included the two models. The shoot was totally informal and consisted of the two models being posed in and around the car for an hour, being snapped on nothing more complicated than DSLR cameras and mobile phones! Within two hours the photos and videos were viewable on their Instagram feed and that was it. How marketing has changed!

Coronavirus Precautions etc – Updated 7 October 2020

Due to various staffing issues outside of our control it is currently taking much longer to prepare cars for sale, which explains why there are very few for sale on the website at present. We currently have R107 300SL roadster, W111 280SE 3.5 coupe, W123 230CE coupe, W123 280TE estate, W124 230CE coupe, W124 E220 cabriolet, W124 E320 estate and W201 190E 2.5-16 models awaiting preparation. Any of them can be viewed and reserved pending preparation, and as soon as you have secured your chosen car by payment of a deposit it will be brought to the head of the queue for immediate attention.

We are open to visitors by appointment, and our premises are not in an area subject to local lockdown. In line with UK Government instructions we are applying strict social distancing rules and sanitisation of surfaces in between visitors. Apart from our own personnel a maximum of two customers, who must be from the same household, will be permitted on the premises at any one time. We will not be able to offer test drives until further notice.
