This year, at the Cannes International Film Festival in France, the 65th Palme d’Or (Golden Palm) will be awarded. Mercedes-Benz decided to pay tribute to the celebration of the coveted award by providing a fleet of shuttle limos and SUVs completely wrapped in bright, flashy gold.

As you can tell by the photo, the German automaker is providing stretched S-Class models, CLS-Class models, E-Class models, and ML-Class models. Some of those are AMG variants ensuring stars and guests of this year’s film festival can travel in style. AMG is also offering daily test drives throughout the festival dates (May 16 – May 27) so that visitors can test out the luxury brand’s current line up.

It’s pretty flashy to wrap a fleet of transportation cars in shiny gold finish, but when it comes to the Cannes International Film Festival – nothing is considered too outrageous. As it says on the side of one of its cars, “Star inside. Star outside.”
