Support Team BenzBlogger on the 2017 Rally Appalachia 2
The Atlanta International Auto Show is this weekend at the Georgia World Congress Center. I stopped by to see what was on display.
Mercedes-Benz brought the big guns this year! The not-yet-released GT C Roadster is absolutely perfect! It’s like they knew I would be there and brought my favorite color combo! The lines on this car are so elegant and sporty. It could not be better!
The G550 4×4² is the star of any show it attends. I think this one is designo Manufaktur Paprika and it brought the crowds!
The Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet is expected to be limited to 30 units for the United States! This looks very much like the S550 or S63 cabriolet but turned up to 100. The extra diamonds in the interior and the exterior trim make it extremely special.
The soon-to-be-released 2018 E400 coupe Launch Edition in Magno Matte Cashmere White was one of my favorites. It looks tremendously different from the current body style and distinct from the C-Class coupe.
The 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 Cabriolet launch edition was present! This is the car I call S’more because of the marshmallow exterior and the chocolate and graham cracker interior. It really is a knockout!
The GLS63 AMG looked aggressive in white with black trim. I don’t get to see nearly enough of these at the dealership.
The E400 Wagon has arrived! I was hoping for the AMG variant but it is always good to see the wagon on display.
The Mercedes-AMG GT S is SO FUN! That is my official review. Jalopnik recently drove one for the weekend and came to a similar conclusion. I love the colorful language in this review.
“So how do you make a car this expensive, this wild, this over-the-top, and still make it absolutely great? I’m still not sure how Mercedes did it, but the Mercedes-AMG GT S, incredibly dumb name and all, is great.”
“I thought it might be an attempt at a sporty coupe for general-practice doctors from a car company that makes big and heavy yachts for thoracic surgeons.”
“Plus that button just looks like a twin-barreled cannon carried around by a demented robot.”
“Foot on the brake, press the ENGINE START/STOP button, make sure the loud exhaust is in the “on” position, because the quiet setting is mostly just for unexpected funerals and pre-getaway crime, and then make sure the parking brake is off.”
“It’s direct and communicative, and even though you sit approximately 900 miles from the tip of the car, you still know at all times what the front of the car is doing. ”
“It’s a car that you not only want to drive, it wants to be driven right back at you. And there’s nothing I could possibly want more.”
I have had a bunch of orders arrive this month and they looked great! Without exception the new owners are thrilled to have a vehicle that is exactly what they wanted and unique in the marketplace. The customers waited between 60 days to 8 months for these masterpieces!
2016 GLC300 – Black with Espresso Brown Leather
2017 GLS550 – Palladium with designo Espresso Brown Leather

Don’t settle for something you don’t love! If you have a strong vision for your new car I can make it happen
This beauty is on the showroom floor if you would like to see it for yourself!
Because I am very lucky, there is a 2016 AMG GT S parked in front of my office! Because you are very lucky, it is for sale! Come visit!
Does the automotive press like the new Mercedes-AMG GT S? Ummm, yeah.
“It’s one of the best-handling cars I’ve ever driven. Certainly the best in the big, powerful bruiser category. Completely hooked up, without understeer. The car comes right into a corner, but the tail doesn’t come around. It’s just beautifully balanced all the time.”
“This thing is basically just the greatest car there is,” Lieberman said. “Too hyperbolic? Well, it’s certainly not as well-mannered as the Turbo S. And that’s a good thing. Philosophically speaking, a little bit of attitude, a bit of misbehaving, that’s kind of what we all prefer, right?”
“If you want thrills and excitement and entertainment, the GT S is your car. It does everything the 911 does but with just enough hints of danger to get your blood pumping. “It’ll kill momentum, jink, stick, and rocket away from bends like a Le Mans racer,” Martinez said. “If the GT S is indicative of a new era in AMG history, all others had better watch out.”
“Are you still grinning like an idiot three days later? If yes, well, special. Is the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S a special car? I’ll save you the suspense. Double hell yes it is!”
“But you don’t buy the AMG GT S for the numbers. You buy it because it eats up a road like nobody’s business.”
“I’ll end this one by stating the obvious. I’m totally smitten with the Mercedes-AMG GT S. It’s special. It checks all the boxes. It’s beautiful, it’s luxurious, and it runs down canyon roads like an axe murder on a parkour course, devouring everything in its path.”
The 2016 Mercedes-AMG GTS Edition 1 has arrived and the first one has already gone home with a very happy owner. But guess what? We have a second one! This car is now parked on our showroom floor and can be seen and heard! Come take a look!
Customer and enthusiast Ben Wayne is launching his YouTube vehicle review channel with the AMG GT S, filmed right here at Atlanta Classic Cars! I make a brief cameo at the 2:30 mark. Thanks for being a fan Ben!
I spent three days looking at the Mercedes-AMG GT S. Three days talking about the GT S with lots of customers. Three days taking and posting pictures. Now it’s gone and I miss it! Here’s a nice long video to get over my withdrawal!
