My pilgrimage to Stuttgart seemed ages ago now having taken place summer of 2014. Yet, surprises continue to turn up as the cars I spotted there have returned on my social media feeds. Remember the Mercedes C111 prototype I spotted a while back? Well turns out the exact car has been making its way around California for the past two months being presented at car week and various shows.
What’s more is the car was given to Jay Leno a few weeks ago for him to have a go at it (notice the consistent number plates). The car was shot for an episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, which premiered today.
