About the Mercedes C-Class
There were 4 differently colored AMG Mercedes C-Class cars competing in the 2004 German Touring Car Masters Championship (DTM-Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft). Former F-1 Driver Jean Alesi’s metallic silver No. 8 was noticeable by the strikingly large AMG logos on the bonnet and sides. Alesi put in a strong performance in his third season in the German DTM, coming in 7th in the drivers’ championship. Mercedes came in second in the manufacturers’ championship, missing first place to rival Audi by a mere 4 points.
