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!

Stock in Preparation, Coronavirus Precautions and Wheels for SaleUpdated 11 April 2021

Stock in Preparation

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. Many cars are being reserved prior to being prepared for sale and selling before they are listed on the website. Models currently awaiting preparation but available for viewing are: R107 300SL roadster, R107 500SL roadster, W111 280SE 3.5 coupe, W115 230.4 saloon (LHD), W123 230CE coupe (SOLD), W123 280TE estate (RESERVED), W124 300TE estate, W124 230CE coupe, W124 300CE Coupe (ultra-low mileage), W124 E320 Sportline cabriolet, W124 E220 cabriolet. 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.


Coronavirus Precautions

As from 12 April we are once again open for car viewings by appointment. We are applying full social distancing measures, with contact surfaces on cars being sanitised before and after viewings. Regrettably we cannot offer test drives until further notice.
