Mercedes DTM bride and vroom

Maro Engel marries in a Merc

NOW ladies and gentlemen raise your glasses to the bride and…vroom.

As the saying goes, something old, something new, something borrowed, something, er, pink.

Forget your horse and carriage, this is a proper wedding car.

AMG driver Maro Engel and his stunning wife Steffi did I do a little bit differently this week.

Getting to the church on time was no problem in this DTM 460bhp racecar monster. It even had ‘Just Married’ graphics on the pink paintjob.

Maro said: “It was an absolutely amazing, incredible experience. When the team offered it to us, we were blown away and thought about how best to manage the half-hour drive.

“It was a crazy feeling, driving off from the church in the C63 DTM together with my wife. We each had a big wide grin on our face.

“The DTM car brought us full circle, symbolically speaking, because we met through and at the DTM.”

Steffi seems like the perfect wife, apparently loving her racecar trip to the hotel.

Maro added: “When the offer was first made by the team, I had to discuss it with Steffi. I knew, of course, that this is not necessarily the air-conditioned luxury vehicle that you would have on the way back to your hotel. But Steffi said right away that we should jump at the chance. She thought the idea was tremendous.”

Let’s hope the honeymoon was just as racy…
