Mercedes revisits the glory of the Silver Arrows

Mercedes-Benz has a long and very storied racing history, dating back to the dawn of the automobile. Naturally, we take every opportunity available to explore that history, which is why this clip is so interesting.

It's from a video called "Magical Moments" that Mercedes puts out through its Classic store. From what we can tell, it recaps some events from its glory days and features quotes from some of the Silver Arrows' greatest drivers. The acting is, predictably, a bit wooden, but the cars are simply exquisite. With appearances from Jackie Stewart and all the classic Mercedes racers you can possibly imagine, any fan of vintage cars is going to get a kick out of this.

Scroll down for six-minutes of classic open-wheeled racers and endurance cars.
