Mercedes-Benz World appoints Pirelli ‘Supplier of Excellence’
Mercedes-Benz World, the new multi-million pound brand centre being built at the historic Brooklands racing circuit in Weybridge, Surrey, has awarded Pirelli Limited “Supplier of Excellence” status. Pirelli will supply its state-of-the-art high performance tyres for the Mercedes vehicles used on the track activities and within Mercedes Benz World.
Visitors to Mercedes-Benz World will enter an experiential and interactive world that immerses them in the passion, heritage, values and innovation of the Mercedes-Benz brand. Visitors will be able to see every car and every colour in the range, but they’ll also be able to book driving experiences on the handling circuits (including a wet skid circle and a 10-acre off road course); there will also be a five star gourmet restaurant, a café, boutiques, and a dedicated ‘kids zone’ including safe, supervised and fun activities such as an interactive problem solving lab. Tyres from the Pirelli range will be shown on the dynamic “Wheel Wall” which allows you to choose the wheels and Tyres for a new car and view them in motion.
Peter O’Halloran, managing director of Mercedes-Benz World, commented: “Our intention is to make Mercedes-Benz World a top class attraction that offers exclusive facilities and cuisine to match the quality of our reputation. In building the Mercedes-Benz World brand experience centre, we have sought companies that match our brand characteristics and we are delighted to be able to team up with Pirelli and have access to their latest high performance products.”
Dominic Sandivasci, managing director Pirelli UK Tyres Ltd, said: “Pirelli is delighted to be working with Mercedes-Benz World, who have truly created one of the most technologically advanced brand experience centres in the UK, at Brooklands. Pirelli and Mercedes-Benz World have a shared belief in creating the products which incorporate high performance and passion with ultimate control. We are proud that Pirelli has been appointed “Supplier of Excellence” to Mercedes Benz World, and look forward to working together in the future.”
