Jesenska pripoved, Mercedes Benz 220 SE / The Autumn tale, Mercedes Benz 220 SE

Category : Avtomobilizem · by Nov 23rd, 2012

V soboto sem fotografiral enega lepših starodobnikov, ki ga lahko srečamo na naših cestah. Gre za pravo redkost, popolnoma restavriran Mercedes Benz 220 SE iz davnega leta 1960. Janez in Jure Petač sta za temeljito restavracijo porabila skoraj 6 let. Zato ni čudno, da me je ob ogledovanju avtomobila pred fotošutingom spremljal občutek, da je ravnokar zapeljal iz salona. Kabriolet, ki šteje že preko pol stoletja, je pravi dragulj. Poganja ga 2,2 litrski bencinski motor z mehanskim vbrizgom goriva, ki zmore 120 konjskih moči. Ni slabo za obdobje, ko je imel povprečen avto nekaj malega čez 40 konjev… Notranjost je čudovita, sedeži udobni pa so udobni kot fotelji v dnevni sobi. Detajli, linije, krom, usnjena notranjost, armatura iz masivnega lesa… Z razkošjem niso šparali. Zanimivo je, da je tovarna je izdelala le 1112 avtomobilov, zato si lahko zamislite kako redko ga je mogoče ujeti na cesti. Sploh v tako originalnem stanju. Dotični avtomobil pa je tudi letošnji zmagovalec Concurs d’Elegans.
No, imeli smo res srečo, saj smo ujeli najlepšo soboto v letošnjem novembru in uspeli naresti pravo jesensko pripoved:

This Saturday I was photographing one of the neatest oldtimers that can be rarely seen on our roads. A totally restored Mercedes Benz 220 SE from the year 1960. This thorough restoration was done by Janez and Jure Petač from Ljubljana and it took them approximately 6 years to complete it. While I was inspecting it before the shooting, I really got the feeling it just drove out of a car saloon moments ago. This convertible, over half a century old, is a real gem of German engineering. It is driven by 2,2 liter petrol engine with fuel injection that is capable of 120 horse power. Not bat for an era when an average car had only a little over 40 horsepower… The interior is magnificent and the seats are as comfortable as the living room couch. The detail, lines, chrome trim, leather interior, wooden dashboard… They didn’t spare the luxury with this one, that’s for sure. The Mercedes Benz factory built only 1.112 of these cars, so you can imagine how rare one can see it on the road. Especially in factory like condition. I think it is only fair to mention that this particular car is the winner of this year’s Concurs d’Elegans.
Well, we had a bit of luck as we picked the nicest saturday in this year’s November for our photoshoot and we managed to make a true Autumn tale:

Do naslednjič,
Luka

Haha Borut! Dejva narest šuting ob Krki! Veš da je ponavadi najlažje poštimati že pred fotkanjem, samo v tvojem primeru res nisem ziher. Bi 2 dni samo opremo ven nosila 🙂
