The MB Market – An Online Auction Platform Exclusively for Mercedes-Benz – Announces Sponsorship of Amelia Island Concours Week; An Internationally Recognized Automobile Celebration

2 March, 2022 – The MB Market is celebrating its success as the world’s only online auction platform focused exclusively on Mercedes-Benz. The company, which has developed an international reputation for its diverse, high-end inventory of classic, rare, and unique Mercedes-Benz vehicles, is proud to be a corporate sponsor for the freshly rebranded 2022 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, now known as “The Amelia”, and the Grand Motoring Festival at the Amelia Island private airport in Amelia Island, Florida. 

A multi-day event committed to automotive excellence, the annual Amelia Island Concours and Grand Motoring Festival will be held this year from March 3rd to 6th, 2022. The MB Market will have an exclusive booth on the show field at this internationally-recognized event and will be featuring two incredibly rare, pre-merger AMG vehicles for the crowd to enjoy: a 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC AMG Widebody and a 1990 Mercedes-Benz 500SL 6.0 AMG. These vehicles – which will be shown alongside those from other vendors and automobile collectors – join an impressive showcase of hundreds of historically significant cars from seldom-seen private collections worldwide. 

“We are excited to be official sponsors of this year’s annual Amelia Island Concours and Grand Motoring Festival.  We look forward to seeing some familiar faces and meeting some new ones too,” remarked Blakley Leonard, Co-Founder of The MB Market. A head-spinning, family-friendly event, the week will be full of scheduled dinners, car auctions, road tours, seminars, and more. “This is one of the premier concours events in the country and we look forward to being back in Florida for The Amelia,” Leonard added.

Both the 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC AMG Widebody and the 1990 Mercedes-Benz 500SL 6.0 AMG are Japanese imported, pre-merger AMGs and hold historical significance for both Mercedes-Benz and AMG fanatics alike. Built in-period by AMG, these cars feature authentic pre-merger parts and classic AMG styling. The 560SEC features a blue suede interior with Recaro seats and a fully custom modern suspension setup. The 500SL 6.0 has engine work performed by AMG which increased displacement from 5.0L to 6.0L. Both cars are highly collectible and have become extremely rare to find today.

“These two pre-merger AMG Mercedes-Benz examples are sure to please the eyes of Amelia’s refined crowd of domestic and international attendees,” added Leonard. “Each year, this event draws hundreds of rare vehicles from around the world for an automobile celebration like no other in which we honor and recognize the best traditions of car culture. We (The MB Market) are committed to doing our part to support the event yet again in 2022,” he added.
