Porsche | Don 176

Digging. Panning. Washing. These steps do not apply to Matt Hummel’s rather unconventional search for treasure. The 39-year-old collector is not prospecting for nuggets, but rather for rust buckets. Like his latest find  – a Porsche 356 A 1600 from 1956. The patina on this coupe is so venerable, it has acquired a patina of its own. Coconut fibers stick every which way out of the seats, and bare sheet metal adorns its footwell.

The Porsche is parked on the outskirts of Auburn, a town not far from Sacramento. A classic sports car, it radiates an imperturbable peace with its age.It has traveled far and wide, and has nothing to hide. Hummel’s gaze traces its lines. “This 356 is in precisely the same condition that I found it in,” he says. “I love its authentic quality. The car has lived through so much, and it’s still here. I want to keep it like a time machine – not to restore it back to what we think was its original state.”

No facelift, no makeup

Hummel wants to drive the faded and weary-looking 356 exactly the way it is. No facelift, no makeup. His reasoning is simple. “The Porsche was built to drive, not to sit around in the garage.” In the past, people just put a few numbers on the doors and entered the next race. The cars crossed the finish line with all their scratches and dents, and the drivers had that special smile on their faces. Hummel likes to wax philosophical without taking himself too seriously. He grins and opens the door on the driver’s side, which creaks ominously. “Sounds good, doesn’t it?” Then he waves his hand and says, “Come on, I’ll show you my house and a few more Porsches.”

At the next intersection Hummel sticks his arm out the window to indicate that he wants to turn. After all, who needs turn signals? The 356 barrels down a dirt road. Despite its wild appearance, the car masters curve upon curve with ease, effortlessly climbing the crests of the hills. Hummel reaches his property in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, and the drive comes to an end.

Matt Hummel with his Porsche

On grounds surrounded by trees and undergrowth, the 356 pulls to a stop next to the other members of Hummel’s automotive family: a Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 from 1986, flanked by a 912 from 1966, a 356 A Super from 1958, and two 356 Cabriolets from 1952. The open 356s are the most valuable of the group. “These two cars have consecutive chassis numbers,” he says. “They were produced one right after the other.” One number ends in 4, and the other in 5. Hummel beams. He doesn’t reveal where he found the two Porsches, but simply winks and says, “Sometimes it can happen that cars find me.”

Matt Hummel’s passion for older automobiles began very early. At the age of sixteen, during a semester break in his art studies, he started looking for rare car parts. His first objects of desire were Volkswagen components. He worked his way through half of California in search of them. Later he and some friends heard about a high density of Volkswagen parts in Burma and Thailand, which prompted them to set off on exciting expeditions. “At that time I wasn’t happy until I lay exhausted in my hotel room with a heap of something like safari-style hinged windows from VW Samba buses next to my bed.”

Collection of treasures

Back in the United States, he sold the rare components. “If you start dealing with historical VW parts,” he remarks, “at some point you’ll automatically end up with Porsche.” Hummel’s treasure chamber is the barn next to his home. It contains finds from the past ten years. Hummel opens a yellowed cardboard box, pulls out shiny green plastic parts, and cradles them in his hand like jewels. “The Holy Grail!” he exclaims. “My ex-girlfriend and I spent our last vacation in search of them.” With a smile he displays a complete set of knobs from an early Porsche instrument panel. “Or here …” He heads to another corner of the room and opens the back of a 356 Cabriolet.

“Its engine is in the living room.” The tour goes on. A jar full of Kamax screws. A drawer with 80-millimeter pistons from early Porsche pre-A production. “Pure gold!” Next to that, an entire shelf of side mirrors reflect sunlight onto a nearby engine. “Check this out! Porsche’s first racing engine. The 1500 Super from 1954, or the 502 for short. A real rarity! It’s a marvelous example of how closely related the first Porsches were to Volkswagens.” Hummel recently sold one of these to a buyer in Austria. “When someone with a rare Porsche calls me, I’m happy to go through my collection of treasures and find just the right part for it,” he says. Because he knows that some jewels simply have to be passed on.

 

A purple driver’s dream from Finland

Good drivers are hard to find – and even harder to keep hold of. Finnish haulier Miks Auvinen has his own successful model for staff retention: his 460 kW Actros 2663 “Lowrider” show truck. He has converted his Actros 2663 semitrailer with two silo trailers into a unique driver’s dream in conjunction with his professional driver Arto Simola, who has been driving for the family-run company Kuljetus Auvinen for three years. The company is based in Helsinki and specialises in silo transportation. Over 6000 hours of work have gone into creating the “Lowrider”. The cockpit is dominated by purple velvet and smooth white leather.

Managing director Mika Auvinen is known throughout Finland and beyond for his passion for show trucks. The Actros “Lowrider” has received no fewer than seven awards in Finland and Sweden to date.

From the initial concept of the “Lowrider” to the first test drive took almost a year. The cost of the materials required to create the purple driving dream came in at around 450,000 euros. But for Arto Simola, the real value lies in the privilege of having probably one of the most unusual workplaces in the world.

World’s first racetrack with AMG branding

Mercedes-AMG was born on the racetrack more than 50 years ago – for the first time anywhere in the world, a racetrack now bears the successful brand name: The AMG Speedway in South Korea, an important Mercedes-AMG market, marks the beginning of a new era of the AMG community. The track not only adopted the name, but also sports the hallmark corporate design of AMG. The 4.3-kilometre circuit, some 38 kilometres from Gagnam, the trendy district of the capital Seoul, allows experiencing the brand’s Driving Performance as intensively and exclusively as nowhere else in the region. The AMG Lounge provides an inviting setting for community discussions and personal exchanges with AMG experts. In addition, the sports car and performance brand will also use the AMG Speedway for the presentation of new models, dealer training, and other event formats.

The performance, the precision and the driving dynamics of an AMG model are best and most safely experienced on a racetrack. “The AMG Speedway is the world’s first racetrack bearing our name. This underlines the importance of South Korea as one of our main markets. The AMG Speedway is thus not only an important step in the further dynamic development of AMG in South Korea. It also stands for the strategic expansion of our face-to-face communication. Customers and fans can experience the essence of our brand here first hand”, says Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. Thanks to an attractive product range, Mercedes-AMG in South Korea recorded a significant double-digit growth and a new sales record in 2017.

The circuit and its surroundings are not only being branded with high-profile AMG logos, but are also enhanced with a host of exclusive AMG locations in the corporate design such as the AMG Lounge the separate pit lane and paddock area.

The AMG Speedway is based on the South Korea’s first permanent racetrack, which was inaugurated in 1995. The circuit was extensively reconfigured and expanded in 2011 using the plans of renowned racetrack designer Hermann Tilke. The circuit is now 4.3-kilometres long and winds its way through 17 turns and over a bridge on the grounds of the Everland Resort theme park on the outskirts of the capital Seoul.

Mercedes-Benz | Body parts for 300 SL “Gullwing”

Key body parts for the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL “ Gullwing” (W 198) are again available in factory quality. They can be ordered by their part number from any Mercedes-Benz sales partner. The production process combines state-of-the-art technology with traditional craftsmanship. It guarantees a high accuracy of fit of the metal parts while minimising the need for subsequent work on the vehicle. Mercedes-Benz Classic developed the process in cooperation with a certified supplier.

Stuttgart. The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL “Gullwing” (W 198) is still one of the world’s dream cars. Between 1954 and 1957, just 1,400 units were built of the famous “Gullwing”, which was voted “ Sports Car of the Century” in 1999. The conservation of these valuable vehicles sometimes requires key body parts. Mercedes-Benz Classic has now reproduced these parts, with others in preparation.

The body parts meet the high standards of Daimler AG and can be ordered by their part number from any Mercedes-Benz sales partner. Their surfaces are electrophoretically painted, which assures the highest technical and visual standards. The prices include VAT.

  • Front panelling left (A198 620 03 09 40), 11,900 euros
  • Front panelling right (A198 620 04 09 40), 11,900 euros
  • Rear panelling left (A198 640 01 09 40), 14,875 euros
  • Rear panelling right (A198 640 02 09 40), 14,875 euros
  • Rear-end center section (A198 647 00 09 40), 2,975 euros
  • Rear-end floor (A198 640 00 61 40), 8,925 euros

The metal parts are produced for Mercedes-Benz Classic by a certified supplier, whose expertise includes the highly complex construction of tools from optimised 3D data from original bodies. Metal parts produced on these tools are then worked into their final shape by hand using wooden mallets – another special process. The result of this symbiosis between state-of-the-art production technology and traditional craftsmanship is a high accuracy of fit that minimises the need for subsequent work on the vehicle.

The precise 3D tool data also provide the basis for quality inspection by means of painstaking false colour comparison. The measuring tool receives the data as a reference and uses false colours to visualise the measured deviations between the desired state and the actual state, thus making it possible for the measurement results to be unambiguously and quickly interpreted.
