Chester Bennington honored with custom Mercedes-AMG race car

ABC/Randy HolmesLinkin Park teamed up with Mercedes-AMG to design a custom race car in honor of the late Chester Bennington. The car was unveiled during the Petit Le Mans race over the weekend outside of Atlanta.

"We worked with MercedesAMG to design this flame-tattoo car in honor of Chester," LP's Mike Shinoda wrote in an Instagram post accompanied by a photo of him and LP's DJ, Joe Hahn, standing next to the vehicle.

Linkin Park and Mercedes worked together often prior to Bennington's death.  The company previously designed a custom LP-themed car, and the band headlined the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin this past June in honor of Mercedes-AMG's 50th anniversary.

Later this month, Linkin Park will hold a memorial concert in honor of Bennington. The show, which will feature performances from Blink-182, Korn's Jonathan Davis, and Bring Me the Horizon's Oli Sykes, plus members of Avenged Sevenfold and System of a Down, will be held October 27 in Los Angeles.
