Let's start my Black Series Tour! Setting off from @The Shmuseum our first stop is Paris, France with my three AMG Black Series models; the GT, SLS and C63, plus the G63 support car. The first leg takes us to the Eurotunnel and onwards to the Eiffel Tower!
After recently adding both the GT Black Series and C63 Black Series to the collection, it's always been in the works to make a trip come together to bring these beasts to where they came to life in Germany. With a tour that takes us via Paris, onto Stuttgart to visit Mercedes and AMG, and then up to the Nurburgring, it's really bringing the cars to good use.
For the first day, we're setting off from the garage having prepared all the cars on our way to France and ultimately to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The journey takes us out of London and via the Eurotunnel for the fastest and easiest crossing of the English Channel. With travel restrictions opening up, and especially with new Duty-free shopping at the Folkestone Terminal, as well as Tax-free shopping available for UK residents in the EU, it's a very good time to make use of the service and get on the road.
After off-loading from the train on the French side, it's then onwards to Paris with a cruise along the French Autoroutes and into the chaotic city traffic as we make our way to the centre. It wouldn't be such a trip without a lap of the Arc de Triomphe on the way through, and then to the Champs-Elysees on our way to the most famous monument of them all for an impromptu meet up before venturing to our hotel for the night.
Safe to say the tour has kicked off in style, but this is just the beginning! Thanks to Eurotunnel for supporting this adventure, and bringing the cars across to the continent.
