Thanks for visiting my blog! Please contact me if you're thinking about purchasing a Mercedes-Benz in the
At the Geneva auto show Mercedes-Benz showed off their new Vision GLK BLUETEC Hybrid. Based on the upcoming GLK-Class this concept combines a 2.2 liter BLUETEC diesel with a mild hybrid system to result in a stunning 40 mpg. The 2.2 liter diesel by itself is a great package with an output of 224 hp & 413 lb-ft of torque.
I’m a huge fan of diesels and I would love to see this motor with or without the hybrid in the GLK and next years C-Class for the US market. Based on Mercedes past launches I would expect to see the GLK BLUETEC available a few months after the gasoline powered GLK350 comes out this summer. The hybrid GLK will probably launch in 2009 or 2010 along with hybrid versions of several other Mercedes models.
Get in touch with me today to get on the list for the new GLK.
For the third year in a row I am getting ready to host the annual Test Drive a Mercedes Day for local Arbonne Consultants. In past years I have had over 100 people come to take a look at their future cars!
If you are unfamiliar with Arbonne it was founded in 1980 in Switzerland. They use natural, botanical ingredients to create high quality skin care products and dietary supplements. You can learn more at the Arbonne International website. As a perk to their Regional and National Vice Presidents, Arbonne provides a car allowance that will help pay for a white Mercedes-Benz!
If you plan to visit Atlanta Classic Cars for the test drive event please get in touch with me ahead of time and set up an appointment. See you soon!
I am proud to say that I have signed up to walk in the 3-Day Breast Cancer walk. This is a 60 mile walk over the course of 3 days! Our team, the ACC Breast Friends, will be 8 women from the dealership and we plan to raise almost $20,000 to find the cure! The walk is October 24-26th here in Atlanta.
If you would like to donate towards my goal of $2200 I would be very grateful! Please sign the honor roll if you donate!
