Behind the Scenes on the WOW Shoot


Each year, Women on Wheels chooses a cutting-edge car and an exquisite model to feature on the cover of their annual motoring magazine. When they went in search of the perfect #WOWCoverstar, they received a huge number of entries from across South Africa and decided to add an extra element of excitement by choosing three cover star finalists, and shooting all of them on one day. The result was images so beautiful that they couldn't pick just one cover star.

As for the beautiful vehicle they co-starred with, meet the new generation Mercedes-Benz SLC300, which takes its styling cues from its iconic predecessor, the SLK. This compact roadster is sleek, stylish and sexy and was therefore the perfect choice for this year’s Women on Wheels cover.

The #WOWCoverstar finalists got to experience the SLC300 first-hand during the shoot and also got a little taste of what it's like to be in front of the camera for the first time. The video below documents how their day went and also highlights a few details of this elegant car, while showing off Cape Town's stunning Twelve Apostles mountain range in the background.

Find out which of the finalists were chosen as the final #WOWCoverstar. Get your copy with the July 2016 issue of HL, which is on sale now.
