Mercedes-Benz SL-Class – 60 Years!

I am always amazed by how the new generation of Mercedes-Benz vehicles can look fresh, innovative and futuristic but still have charateristics of the older generations. The 2013 SL-Class will be all-new this spring but you can see the connection to the first generation from 60 years ago!

2012 Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG Arrives at Atlanta Classic Cars!

Sold – March 2012

Our first 2012 ML63 AMG arrived at the dealership today! It is Black with Black Leather and all of the bells and whistles. I took it for a test drive and I am a big fan! It is easy to drive but has an amazing kick when you ask for it. The exhaust note is fantastic! It is currently without an owner and looking for a good home!
