With so many automotive events, the Geneva International Motor Show to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance to the Paris Motor Show, all canceled, Zoom had a good idea.
In a hastily announced press release, Mercedes-Benz will have an online automotive show on Zoom called the Concours de Zoom. It will feature the Mercedes-Benz vehicles of celebrities and car collectors ranging from Jay Leno to Martha Stewart.
The just-announced event will be broadcast on Zoom at 2 p.m. Pacific Time, 5 p.m., Eastern Time.

Mercedes-Benz will make a financial donation to the American Red Cross after the event.
Musician Ludacris, PGA Tour golfer Rickie Fowler, Riverdale star Madelaine Petsch and music video director Cole Walliser will also participate
During the event, each participant will give viewers a look at their treasured Benz and explain what it is they love so much about the marque and its vehicles.
The Concours de Zoom will also feature appearances by some of the most noteworthy vehicles from the brand’s history.
These include the Rabbit-the-First, a 1908 chain-drive Mercedes with a Benz Aero engine, a 1956 300 SL Gullwing and a 1991 G 300 D. Some of the company’s more recent offerings will be on display, too, like the A 220, the AMG G 63 and the AMG GT C Coupe.
