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 22 January 2021

In line with UK Government instructions we are currently closed to visitors until further notice. We are however contactable by phone and email during normal business hours.

We are still selling cars during lockdown, and as well as our legendary ultra-detailed website descriptions and multiple photos we are now working to provide a no-nonsense 'warts and all' walk-round video for each car. In recent months these videos have given many customers the confidence to purchase cars without actually seeing them 'in the metal'. We are happy to store your purchase free of charge until such time as it is permissible to collect it.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Due to various staffing and supply issues outside our control it is currently taking much longer to prepare cars, and as a result there are very few for sale on the website at present. Models currently awaiting preparation but available for inspection are: R107 300SL roadster, W111 280SE 3.5 coupe, W123 230CE coupe, W123 280TE estate, W124 E320 estate, W124 300TE estate, W124 230TE estate, W124 230CE coupe, W124 E220 cabriolet, W126 500SEL saloon and W201 190E 2.5-16 saloon. Any of them can be 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.
