The Ultimate Car Selfie — Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrow

Here at Germain Mercedes-Benz of Easton we never recommended taking pictures or videos while driving, but, if you’re going to do it, you might as well do it in the coolest car possible, the 1954 Mercedes-Benz W196 Silver Arrow.

Recently, Mercedes-Benz Formula One driver Nico Rosberg was able to take the Silver Arrow out for a spin at Hockenheim and filmed himself while driving for a minute. He gives us some pretty sweet views from the seat of the car, but please, don’t try this at home. Remember, he really is a professional driver.

Oddly enough, this video makes us nervous, not because we think he’s going to crash, but it seems like he could drop his phone at any second. Maybe someone should buy him a real video camera with a mount so he doesn’t have to do this anymore.

The Silver Arrow was designed to win races, and won nine out of twelve races in its short 18-month career. Mercedes-Benz only built 14 models with only ten surviving today. Of those, the only privately-owned version was auctioned last summer for an astronomical $31 million.

So as you can see, if you’re going to take the ultimate car selfie, make sure it’s in the Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrow.
