Mercedes-Benz S550 Pictures – 2013 vs. 2014

I happen to have one 2013 S550 left and it is Iridium Silver. I happen to have one 2014 S550 demo and it is Iridium Silver. They were clearly begging for a photo comparison!

2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Interior Pictures!

C250 Interior 2015

Mercedes-Benz published some pictures of the 2015 C-Class interior this week. You can see a lot of CLA-Class in there and some S-Class! Visit the Mercedes-Benz Facebook Gallery for more pictures and some details!

Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure!

I finished my 6th Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure this weekend! I want to thank Atlanta Classic Cars, my donors and my team for making it possible for me to walk in this important event. We are making progress in treatment, diagnosis and getting ever closer to the cure for this disease.

2014 S550 Arrives at Atlanta Classic Cars – Silk Beige, Nut Brown Leather

Our first 2014 Mercedes-Benz S550s have arrived! I took a bunch of pictures because these are ordered vehicles and will not be on display. We do have our Iridium Silver S550 demo vehicle if you still need to take a look and test drive!

Black Mercedes S550

The Nut Brown/Black Nappa Leather is new for this year. It is always hard to describe a color but it is not red, not orange, not dark. I’m going to go with milk chocolate as my descriptor.

The leather dashboard looks great in this car. I think I would go with the Daylight White ambient lighting scheme.

Look at that attention to detail! The steering wheel has Nut Brown contrast stitching!

This is the Silk Beige Nappa Leather interior. Very elegant!

This CLA250 came in the same shipment…I know it isn’t an S-Class but it is still an eye catcher!

Training – 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class and CLA-Class!

CLA training

Yesterday was my Mercedes-Benz training on the 2014 CLA-Class and the 2014 S550. We’ve had these vehicles at the dealership for a few weeks now and it was great to get some hands on experience with the experts.

Our CLA250 test drive vehicles were equipped with the Drive Kit Plus for iPhones. We were able to use Siri, check in via Facebook, and turn on the internet radio. Our instructor could also use the Family Driver Monitoring from mbrace to make sure we stayed on track!

This is best picture I could get of Northern Lights Violet on a CLA250 that was displayed inside. It is a really pretty, deep eggplant color with a LOT of sparkle. They said it was even prettier in the sunshine and looked black at night.

2014 S550 heritage

This is the 10th gernation of S-Class in the United States and it was clear from the training that it is the most advanced vehicle we have ever offered! We spent an hour on the outside, and hour on the inside, watched videos by the designer and still barely covered the basics!

We also had a little fun watching DVDs and enjoying the unbelieveable Burmester sound system! It absolutely fills the car with rich, full sound. It’s hard to image the upgraded system!

Thanks Mercedes-Benz! It was a great day and I look forward to sharing this information with both my new CLA owners and my returning S-Class owners soon!
