Mercedes-Benz CLA250 Crash – Owner is Fine!

This beautiful new 2014 CLA250 was stopped in Atlanta traffic when a pickup truck plowed into the back bumper doing 60 mph! The first thing the driver heard after the accident was the mbrace operator asking if he needed help and the police arrived a few minutes later. He walked away from this accident with only a bruised forearm. The car however, is not looking so good. It was towed into the Atlanta Classic Cars Collision Center today and it looks scary! I am so glad that my client is ok…and he has already picked out his next Mercedes-Benz!

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!

The Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is So Aerodynamic!

This can only be topped by my favorite Chicken video.

Mercedes-Benz CLA45AMG Training!

CLA45 class

I got up ridiculously early this morning to attend a CLA45AMG training session with the service department. The technical acheivements of the CLA45 AMG are very impressive and it looks pretty sharp too!

The silver contrast “chin” on the car was a surprise! The one we sold recently was Iridium Silver so I didn’t notice! This would be black on a car with the Night Styling Package!

This is the worlds most powerful production 4-cylinder. 355 horses and it feels like a rocket!

No need to worry…if you order now you will be driving the perfect CLA by spring.

You can build your own online and e-mail me the specifications. jcw@atlantaclassiccars.com

CLA 19" wheels

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.

AMG handbuilt

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!

Mercedes CLA AMGThe 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?

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG is Motor Authority’s Best Car to Buy!

Motor Authority

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…

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!
