Mercedes Media Night in Paris 2016
In September 2016, on the eve of the Paris Motor Show, the Mercedes-Benz Media Night took place in the legendary Art Déco swimming pool “Piscine Molitor” in Paris.
At this event, the new Mercedes AMG GT Roadster and the AMG GT C Roadster were presented. Unveiling mechanisms were installed under the stage for the presentation of the GTR 2. They pulled the unveiling cloths at a speed of 8m/sec in order to effectively set the stage for the vehicle underneath it.
Hydraulic lifting platforms and a 6-meter turntable
For the presentation of the AMG GT C, a complete unveiling system consisting of hydraulic lifting platforms and a turntable with a diameter of 6 meters was mounted on the platforms at its end. This system was installed in the understage in the swimming pool in such a way that it was invisible for the public. As a stage termination at the upper edge, a 2-fold divided cover for opening and closing was installed to lift from the ground and to present it to the public.
