This close up of a Mercedes Roadster's steering wheel and dash board through the roll bar highlights how iconic the brand's design can be. One immediately gets transported to an open road in the European countryside, a glamorous date in the passenger seat, with her headscarf billowing in the wind. And the red and green touches in the interior? Tremendous style points.
The photo was taken with a Nikon D5 with a 70-200 2.8 VRII zoom at the Mercedes Benz Classic Center in Irvine, CA, USA. That's where this beautiful, limited edition vintage car was restored. In order to up the visual interest of this image, a vantage point with the bar in the foreground was taken to add perspective and depth. Off camera light was used from camera right to avoid reflecting off the bar.
Location: Irvine, CA.
