Popular Mechanics Reviews the Sprinter 4×4

I love a review that uses the car in real world conditions! Click here to read the full review at Popular Mechanics.

“I’m happy to hear from her, actually, because the Sprinter 4×4 I’m driving is so vast that you need to do a head count every time you climb aboard, and I wasn’t a hundred percent sure we hadn’t left her at that McDonald’s back in North Carolina.”

“The backup camera is nine feet off the ground (I measured), which makes it look like you’re watching drone footage every time you put the van in reverse.”

AMG GT S Review Video at Atlanta Classic Cars!

Customer and enthusiast Ben Wayne is launching his YouTube vehicle review channel with the AMG GT S, filmed right here at Atlanta Classic Cars! I make a brief cameo at the 2:30 mark. Thanks for being a fan Ben!

Cathy Ellis and Atlanta Classic Cars

Recognized as one of the top women business owners in America, Cathy Ellis leads Atlanta Classic Cars with a combination of gentility and tenacity. This formula has served her, and the business, well during the past 25 years.

The daughter of Mercedes-Benz dealer and founder of Atlanta Classic Cars, John Ellis, Sr., Cathy was exposed to her career path at an early age. Through her father, she gained valuable insights into the business and inherited a passion for success. Although he warned her that car sales is no place for a woman, she set her sights on dealer ownership and has made her own definitive mark on the industry.

After graduating from the University of Arizona, Cathy worked at a small Volkswagen dealership in Illinois, developing the expertise and hands-on knowledge needed to move ahead. In 1988, she moved to Atlanta to assume ownership of Atlanta Classic Cars in Decatur. Under her direction, the dealership grew to become one of the largest Mercedes-Benz retailers in the United States, and among the largest woman-owned dealerships in the country.

After four years of planning, consumer research and customer demands shaped the design for the new Duluth location for Atlanta Classic Cars, Atlanta Classic Cars moved to the $15 million facility in Gwinnett County after outgrowing its Decatur home. The current location opened July 2003, with an expansion for the Pre-Owned facility and Collision Center completed in 2006.

According to Ms. Ellis, “While others might say Atlanta Classic Cars is a success in spite of the fact that I am a woman, I believe it is successful, in part, because I am a woman.”

Ms. Ellis embraces Mercedes-Benz corporate-wide commitment to improving one-on-one service and recognizes relationship building is critical to dealership growth. She considers her greatest business accomplishment to be the familial atmosphere of Atlanta Classic Cars, which has led to the longevity of staff and the loyalty of customers. “We care about each other and our clients,” said Ms. Ellis. “And that keeps everybody coming back.”

Thank you Cathy, for making Atlanta Classic Car the place that it is today. You will be missed.  -Jesse Cannon-Wallace, ACC since 2003

Mercedes-AMG GT S Video

I spent three days looking at the Mercedes-AMG GT S. Three days talking about the GT S with lots of customers. Three days taking and posting pictures. Now it’s gone and I miss it! Here’s a nice long video to get over my withdrawal!

The Mercedes-AMG GT S is at Atlanta Classic Cars!

The AMG GT S is here! Our AMG trainer brought it by this morning for both technical and retail training. We offered to store it for the weekend while he is out of town. (nice of us, right?) So, come take a look! It is parked in front of my office.

Model Year 2016 Mercedes-Benz New Nomenclature

Mercedes Nomenclature

Does this help?

For Model Year 2016 Mercedes-Benz is renaming/reorganizing some of our models. If you think of the C/E/S as the building blocks and then the GL as a prefix for SUVs, SL as a prefix for roadsters and CL as a prefix for coupes, I think it makes sense!

My chart isn’t perfect. I left out the S-Coupe and E-Coupe that are staying the same. Also, the B-Class is a strange case and doesn’t fit here. It is a work in progress! We’ll get it eventually.
