It is good to know that even seasoned racing drivers are scared during hot laps!
Thank you to Atlanta Classic Cars, Maxie Price and all of our other sponsors for helping to host this event. If you cannot make it, but still want to support the cause you can donate directly at my personal fundraising page. See you there!
The Mercedes-Benz Performance Center rolled in to Atlanta Classic Cars today and, in addition to top notch golf instruction, they brought us some new 2012 models to show off!
2012 C350 Coupe in Capri Blue over Ash
2012 CLS63 AMG in Diamond White
They will be here tomorrow as well if you want to see these exciting vehicles!
I was driven on the test track at Untertürkheim (4:30 in the video above). It is as exciting and unreal as it looks in the video! I think Jay likes it too!
Mercedes-Benz has begun posting a series of nine videos, hosted by Tommy Kendall, giving performance driving lessons. For those of you who can’t attend the AMG Driving Academy in person, this might be the next best thing!
2012 CLS550 - Stock Number #28529
We now have eight 2012 SLK350s in inventory! This one is my current favorite and is on the showroom floor. We often order silver or black cars with a red interior…this is the first I have had with the Steel Grey. In person the color is darker, more burgandy, less RED. Come see for yourself! It is a gorgeous day for an SLK-Class test drive!

The 2012 ML350 has been priced and is scheduled for release this fall. Recently automotive journalists were able to test drive it for the first time Montana. Here are a few excerpts:
From Motor Authority:
“Now the third generation is here, and to put it simply, it’s even better. With top notch safety and tech features to complement its rich cabin, it not only performs better but is a safer, more responsible choice and one that might make getting there easier as well as more comfortable—a true luxury good for the 21st century.”
“But by far, our favorite 2012 M-Class model is the ML350 BlueTec. If ‘wafting’ up to speed easily (without downshifts) on the highway, cruising effortlessly near triple digits, and getting gas mileage that won’t place a frown on the faces of your more earth conscious friends are all priorities, you’ll find this model the best fit, too.”
“The sport setting on the M-class chassis does a fantastic job of keeping the vehicle flat through corners and seems to all but eliminate dive under hard braking. At the same time, the ride remains reasonably supple, not losing its smoothness at the expense of body stability.”
“As the latest and greatest of the suburban utility vehicles on the market, the 2012 Mercedes M-class is certainly worth a look. Whether you choose gasoline or diesel is really a matter of personal preference–both perform well in this model.”
“Usually a raft of upgrades to a vehicle engenders a price increase, but not so for the 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML350. Even though it was significantly redesigned for the new model year, the 2012 ML350 still starts at $49,865 (including an $875 destination charge), while the ML350 BlueTec diesel starts at $51,365.”
The pricing for the 2012 M-Class has been released and there are no changes!
When you account for the new standard features this is actually a 3.2% price/value improvement! You can see the option pacakges and options pricing in my previous post.
