Professional AMG Driving Academy Video

I have participated in the AMG Driving Academy here in the US and loved every second of it. I’ve even been recorded doing hot laps. The instructors for the Academy lead three cars with amateur drivers around a high speed circuit while looking in their rearview mirrors and coaching! They are just amazing! The video below really demonstrates how they can perform incredible feats of driving while narrating the experience.

2014 and 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class Updates!

You may have heard that the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class has been a huge success! Since it was launched late last year we have not been able to keep up with demand! The 2015 is scheduled to arrive in a few months and there are a couple of changes starting now.

  • CLA250 4Matic Edition 1 Launch – 500 units assigned to dealerships this month. I have one on the schedule and it is not yet spoken for!
  • Cocoa Brown Paint (code 990) introduced.  Universe Blue (code 894) discontinued.
  • New 18″ wheel available

  • Sport Package Plus announced for July Production

  • Two new Carbon Fiber look accessories available for dealer install

Order early! Do not expect to walk into the dealership and find a bunch of CLA250s to choose amongst!

2015 Mercedes-Benz C400 Review – Road & Track

new C-Class

Read the Full Review at Road & Track online.

Headline: “The 2015 Mercedes C400 4MATIC is spectacular”

“The C-Class’s front overhang is impossibly small, its side flanks largely unadorned, and its stance is at once muscular and elegant. With the exception of its in-your-face face, it’s a stunning work of restrained simplicity.”

“Close your eyes and picture the most expensive luxury car you’ve ever been in. Then shrink it in size but not substance. That is the 2015 C-Class. Every element of its cabin is a piece of modern art.”

“The C400’s 3.0-liter V6 pumps out 329 hp and 354 lb-ft, more than enough to move it with serious speed (assisted by weight savings of up to a claimed 220 lbs, thanks to the generous use of aluminum in the W205’s structure.)”

“Mercedes loaded the new C-Class, of course, full of active and passive safety features including autonomous cruise and emergency braking. The latest version of COMAND infotainment system has gained additional functionality but lost a lot more in usability.”

2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe Coming Soon!

2015 CL

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Coupe is everywhere right now! This top of the line 2-door is an all-new model for Mercedes-Benz but is essentially a replacement for the outgoing top of the line 2-door, the CL-Class.

It has been featured in the Future Vehicles section of MBUSA.com for a while and is now showing at the Geneva Autoshow.

Now is the time to order! While pricing is not yet finalized we have the options list and the order banks are open. Based on the demand for the redesigned S-Class it will be a while before you see a 2015 S-Class Coupe available for sale in the showroom!
