It’s here! Our 2014 CLA45 AMG has arrived! Here it is lurking in our AMG Performance showroom. I’ve had lots of clients interested but everyone wanted to drive it first…here is your opportunity.
These look just like the 421 Sport Package Wheels from the 2014 S550!
The “Red Cut” leather is really interesting. It looks like the leather is black on top and red underneath. Every perforation in the seat shows the red.
This engine was handbuilt by Markus Raddau at the AMG engine factory in Germany. It is a 4 cylinder Turbo and it is a blast!
It won’t be here for long! This would be a great present to yourself!
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG has officially been released for sale! They should begin shipping from the ports and arriving at dealerships this week! My silver one is still available! Who’s ready?
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 is not coming to the US and I will probably never even lay eyes on one in person. Normally, I wouldn’t mention it. But this Motor Trend First Drive Review does a great job of explaining the incredible technology while boggling at the ridiculousness of it.
“Turns out that the gargantuan 6×6 is actually hand-built on the same assembly line that produces every other G-Wagen. A workforce 1500 strong recently added a second shift because G-Wagen sales are through the roof, with 2012 the stout off-roader/military vehicle’s best full sales year since production started in 1979.”
“At current exchange rates, the 6×6 costs a little less than $625,000. Take out the 19 percent European value-added tax and you’re still looking at around $525K. (Sadly, Mercedes isn’t selling the 6×6 in the States, or the V-12 G65 — yet.) The 6×6 weighs a touch more than 9000 pounds (up from 5876 for our last standard G63), yet Mercedes claims this monster can hit 60 mph in fewer than 8 seconds.”
“Like for real, jumping a 9000-pound, six-wheeled pickup truck with me grinning like an idiot from the passenger seat. Since we had our usual crew of photo and video people (“Good, but do it once more, please…”), Erwin jumped with the 6×6 again and again and again — I neglected to actually count, but I’d guess 20 jumps is pretty accurate. Then he drove through four feet of water, and then started bounding up boulders at unbelievable angles. Then he let me drive the 6×6. Which, according to Mercedes, makes me the first journalist to be given the thrill.”
“If you’re familiar with portal axles, you’ll feel just a whiff of the familiar rocking sensation. Then the 536 hp and 561 lb-ft of torque kick in and you’re off like a hippopotamus over a waterfall.”
“I should probably mention that the 6×6 has five differentials. This gets a little tricky, but it’s worth explaining…”
“Inexplicably, there’s no backup camera. Now, I realize complaining about a lack of a backup camera is similar to what my predecessors did in the 1970s and ’80s when they’d moan about the lack of rear visibility in a Lamborghini Countach…I think 6×6 owners will develop the technique of just running over the Lamborghini parked behind them. When I asked Axel Harries why no backup camera, he just put his head down and started laughing.”
“Every time I saw it, I turned into a 12-year-old boy, simply giddy with each glimpse. I think the lucky, wealthy folks who purchase AMG’s biggest, most expensive toy will experience the same sense of childlike huzzah and wonderment every time they step into their garage.”
This Diamond White 2014 Mercedes-Benz SL550 arrived on the showroom this week and it keeps catching my eye! I’m not normally wowed by red leather or aluminum trim but together, on this car, they are something special. I can’t photograph it accurately but I did my best!
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG is scheduled for release later this month and it is already winning awards! It was a close race, but Motor Authority has named the CLA45 AMG the Best Performance/Luxury Car to Buy for 2014!
“But most of all, the CLA45 is the kind of car that commutes in comfort, but never fails to inspire a face-splitting grin. It is, quite possibly, the best all-around, attainable, everyday enthusiast car we’ve driven.”
I have one on the way…
The Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned Program is the Best! Not only do we offer the highest quality pre-owned cars but we subject them to a very strict inspection and reconditioning program and then back them up with an extended warranty! If that isn’t enough of a reason to consider a CPO Mercedes-Benz we are now offering special APR’s and payment waivers on some of our vehicles!
You can view all of the Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles for sale at Atlanta Classic Cars on our website. We update daily!
Yet anotherr jaw-dropper! This GL63 AMG was ordered for a client but I like to get pictures of the rare interiors whenever possible.
Combining two of our most exclusive things…designo and AMG!
I did not even know this car was possible! It is jaw-dropping, amazing, and bonkers! This vehicle is currently for sale at Atlanta Classic Cars but it will not last long!
