The designer-print wrapped cars will welcome guests at the Raleigh, Swim Week headquarters and be on hand to liven up events each day and night giving both swim enthusiasts and car enthusiasts something both to get excited about as the C-class has had a big update for 2015, autophiles have been eager to see. 

“It was so much fun getting to do this. I love Mercedes and the black and white just spoke to me,” said Red Carter to Haute Living’s Hadley Henriette from the Mercedes Benz ultra-VIP Star Lounge. The lounge, which is nestled in the Raleigh’s Esther Williams’ suite,  was bedecked in tropical flowers and shades of pink and green for the occasion.
