Black Swan Race Team is based in Boston running an SLS AMG GT3 in the SCCA Pirelli World Challenge series this year. Black Swan Racing Team owner and driver Tim Pappas is a long time AMG customer and enthusiast, and runs a top notch Team operation. They are committed to the SLS AMG GT3 Customer Sport program in the long run which might include the new IMSA United Sports Car Racing series launching in 2014 which is a merger of the Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series and the American LeMans Series and will include such world class endurance racing events as the Rolex 24 at Daytona, Sebring 12 Hours, Watkins Glen 6 Hours and Petit LeMans at Road Atlanta, along with a full slate of shorter races around the US.
Our own Will Vetter from AMG Product Management spent some time with the Tim and the Black Swan Team at the recent race at Lime Rock Park.
I was lucky enough to spend a few hours yesterday with this amazing 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG 4MATIC. We received some technical training and some hands on experience with Race Start and the updated parking assist.
I kept trying to get a picture that really showed off the 19″ matte black 10-spoke wheels (code 752). I am normally not a fan of black wheels but these really complimented the car.
I am now prepared to talk for at least 30 minutes about all of the changes that AMG made to the E63 AMG to make it even more aggressive and exciting on the road. The wider fenders are impressive, the lower facia is artwork and the quad exhaust sounds great!
With all of the exterior upgrades I almost forgot to check out the interior! The AMG styling is present here as well with the sculpted seats, console gear selector and meticulously stitched dashboard.
I am so jealous of all of the people attending the AMG Driving Academy at Road Atlanta this weekend. I would love a little more seat time with this beauty!
Thanks to our AMG Expert John Sands for bringing this car by and I look forward to seeing you again soon for our CLA45 AMG training!
Ever since this commercial started airing customers have been coming in and asking for “the thing with the girl and the soccer ball.” So, for clarification, that “thing” is Distronic PLUS with PRE-SAFE and Pedestrian Recognition. This is part of the Driver Assistance Package on the 2014 E-Class.
Here is a video about how it actually works.
My inventory manager is on a quest for color! After years of stocking E350 Cabriolets exclusively with black soft tops we currently have all four soft top colors in stock! Now I will try to tell you what these colors really look like. We (ok, I) have named the cars for easy reference.
Meet Strawberry! This Iridium Silver E350 cabiolet has a red soft top and a red leather interior. It is a very sporty and striking look. I love how the top and the taillights look from the back. The red top is not bright red and it is not maroon. I am going with not quite brick red as my description.
And here is Blueberry! The blue top is not a new color for Mercedes-Benz but the Deep Sea Blue and Silk Beige Interior is a first. We have also paired it with Lunar Blue paint for the Blue/Blue/Blue combo! The interior is midnight blue. The top is dark navy and the paint is bright navy. All of these colors go surprisingly well together.
And finally here is Mocha! This was the hardest color to capture because it is out in the sunshine. This in a Polar White E350 cabriolet with Silk Beige Interior and the new Brown Soft Top. The Beige top from last year was very popular with white cars but this is different. I think it is a coffee color. Deep brown, no red or orange undertones. You might mistake it for black if it were driving by fast.
I have never had such a variety on convertibles in stock and I may never have it again! If you are thinking about getting something new and different this is your opportunity! Please come by and take a look in person as my pictures and descriptions are woefully lacking. Strawberry, Blueberry and Mocha are all looking for good homes.
The 2014 C-Class sedans have been released for sale as of August 20, 2013. The vehicles that are waiting at the port should be shipping to the dealerships soon!
Our very first 2014 GL63 AMG has arrived! It is looking for a good home. Do you need 550 horsepower in your family hauler?
2014 GL63 AMG
This 2014 Mercedes-Benz E350 coupe just arrived and it is the first one I have seen with this new two-tone interior. The Espresso Brown portion is a deep, dark brown. Very different from the slightly reddish Chestnut Brown and orangey Natural Beige. You’ll have to see it in person to know if you love it.
And, yes, the last white E-Class I posted with brown interior sold in just 2 days! New and Unique!
Here are 5 full minutes of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class driving around and showing off what makes it the most amazing vehicle in the world! Coming this fall to the US.
We just received our first 2014 Mercedes-Benz E350 in Indigo Blue! This is a new color, only available on the 2014 E-Class. It is really hard to get colors to show up properly in pictures and on your monitor. I would say this color most closely resembles Steel Grey but in blue instead of grey. It is much lighter than Lunar Blue but nothing like Quartz Blue. It is not purple. It looks purple on my screen. I might describe it as slate or denim. Come take a look!
