2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet – AIRCAP

2011 E-Class Cabriolet Aircap Deflector

The AIRCAP system on the 2011 E-Class Cabriolet will continue to increase the amount of time you can enjoy your Mercedes with the top down. Building on the AIRSCARF system currently available on the SLK and SL, AIRCAP will create a calm air zone in the passenger compartment making it both more comfortable at higher speeds and easier to heat or cool. A front deflector raises up from the top of the windshield to both redirect air higher over the passenger cabin and allow air slowed down by its screen to enter the cabin and maintain a pocket of calmer air.

Current CLK Cabriolet owners will enjoy not having to install and uninstall a wind deflector anymore. Additionally, you will be able to raise and lower the top at speeds below 25mph.

2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Walk Around Video

The DVD of my presentation that won me the 2010 E-Class Walk Around National Championship has finally arrived. This is a 15 minute presentation, tailored to a client interested in Technology, and my goal was to get the maximum points on the scoresheet. This isn’t how I would normally present to a new client in the showroom but it is a great way to pack in a lot of information! I hope you enjoy it!

If you enjoy this video, check out my presentation from 2007 when I won the 2008 C-Class Walk Around.

Customer Testimonial – 2010 E550 Coupe

E550 Coupe Customer Testimonial


Thanks for helping me acquire my second Mercedes-Benz! Since I had to order the E550 coupe, I honestly didn’t know what to expect. You were very helpful in guiding my decision process around the right options in the car and my expectations were exceeded. Also, during the process of waiting for the car to arrive you were very good about communicating the steps in the process and thus keeping me informed.

You won my business away from Audi and BMW, as I had considered the S5 and the 335i. Besides the fact that the E550 coupe is an incredible car, I feel confident knowing that Atlanta Classic Cars stands confidently behind it. The car represents a huge technological leap and excellence in performance and luxury. Two of my favorite things about the car (and my friends have noted this as well) is how smooth and quiet the car is. The technology is incredible – I’m really impressed with the automatic brights, the backup camera, and the seamless audio/phone integration and the navigation/COMAND system. I love the pillarless design and the panoramic roof (in addition to the power and technology) – passengers have commented that they really enjoy the back seats which is unusual for a coupe. From someone who has had an M3 coupe as well, I can say this is a unique comment for a coupe!

I hope to be a repeat customer. P.S. Thanks for the Pirelli P-zero tires! :)

I’m The 2010 E-Class Walk-Around National Champion!

walkaroundSo…Dieter Zetsche wasn’t actually there, but MBUSA President and CEO Ernst Lieb was one of the judges for my presentation!

This week I had the honor of representing the Southern Region and Atlanta Classic Cars in the 2010 E-Class Walk-Around National Finals in Denver. Two years ago I won the C-Class Walk-Around Competition for the Southern Region but they didn’t have a national competition. This time I had to compete against every salesperson in the whole country. I won at the dealership, market, and regional levels on my way to the finals in Denver. My 15 minute presentation was tailored to a hypothetical client and highlighted many of the amazing innovations found in the 2010 E-Class Sedan. My 3 competitors and I were judged by the MBUSA Executive Management team and I was declared the National Champion!

I’ll post some pictures and the video once I get them from the training department. Thank you to everyone who helped me prepare!

The competition was part of the National Dealer Meeting, so I was able to see (no cameras allowed) the new E-Class Cabriolet scheduled for release this spring and the SLS AMG! Both were spectacular and will be very successful!

If you want to learn all about the 2010 E-Class from the most knowledgeable salesperson in the whole United States please stop by Atlanta Classic Cars and pay me a visit.

2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 Coupe Review – Edmunds.Com

Mercedes E550 Coupe Edmunds

I think they like it!
“Because once you actually go some place and spend all day on the road and maybe even a bit longer than you’d like, then you’ll figure out just how good the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 Coupe really is.”

“Luxury is the place where efficiency meets pleasure, and that’s where you’ll find the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 Coupe. It’s a serious motorcar.”

“If you think everybody should pack into one car for dinner…then you should wait for the shuttle bus, because the grown-ups are leaving.”

“It all adds up in acceleration, because the combination of the right kind of power and a right-size, 3,883-pound package (400 pounds lighter than an E-Class sedan) delivers 60 mph in 5.3 seconds (5.0 seconds with 1 foot of rollout like on a drag strip). Check out the E550 coupe’s quarter-mile run of 13.4 seconds at 105.2 mph and you’ll see what kind of muscle it has.”

“The thing that we really care about, though, is the simple presence of the E-Class suspension. In addition to the configuration of the front suspension struts, this E550 coupe has standard adaptive damping based on inputs from seven sensors, plus the availability of both manually selected normal and Sport mode. “
