New Models and Updates from Mercedes-Benz!

2018 is going to be a busy year for Mercedes-Benz! We have new models, new colors, new styling, and new engines! Just this week I have seen some new things arrive!

GLC300 coupe

Parking the GLC300 coupe next to the GLE43 coupe has really shown me the family resemblance! Just walking by them on the lot it is not immediately obvious which one is which. The GLC coupe has not been out for long and we are getting a lot of calls about it. This one happens to be Diamond White with the Espresso Brown interior and looks just great!

2018 GLA250

This transporter full of cars from Brunswick arrived with our first 2018 GLA45 AMG and the first Canyon Beige GLA250. Both are certainly striking in their own way! The GLA45 features the aero kit which looks awesome and a new Panamericana inspired lower fascia. Love those wheels!

Cardinal Red C43

This Mercedes-AMG C43 looks awesome in Cardinal Red Metallic and sounds as good as it looks! I can immediately tell it is a C43 rather than a C63 because of the grey brake calipers. As the models expand it is important that I can identify them from a quick glance! I hate to have to walk behind the car to figure it out!

Panamericana GTS

This 2018 Mercedes-AMG GTS arrived today! It is the first of the GTs to arrive with the new Panamericana grille. This vertically slatted grill was inspired by an historic race car and looks incredibly modern. It will be on all of the GT models this year – GT, GTS, GTC and GTR. Most people are currently associating it with the ‘Beast of the Green Hell” GTR and are surprised to see it on the other models.

Those are just the new things from this week! Stay tuned! I have a couple of special designo Edition SLs here, a GT roadster on the way and a redesigned S-Class just a few months away! So exciting!

Driven to Delight – A Mercedes-Benz USA Book!

From the author of similar books about The Ritz-Carlton, Zappos and Starbucks comes a new case study of how MBUSA has shifted focus from just “The Best or Nothing” in engineering to also “Driven to Delight” for the customer experience.

Someone called me “a company girl” the other day so obviously I have already read the excerpt and pre-ordered on Amazon.

It is a fascinating look behind the scenes at processes and decisions that directly impact how I do my job. I thought you might find it interesting too!

Video from our 40th Aniversary Party!

Thank you to everyone who attended our amazing 40th Anniversary Party this weekend! Special thanks to Ben Wayne for making a great video tour for us to share!

Mercedes-Benz Museum Video Series – Museum Monday!

I am very excited to see the new Museum Monday videos from Mercedes-Benz. Having visited the museum twice I recognize all of the displays and can’t wait to hear some behind-the-scenes info! Nice to meet you Uke!

An Important Day in History – Mercedes is Born!

On this day in 1900, the first “Mercedes” was delivered to Emil Jellinek. He had commissioned 36 vehicles from a fledgling German automaker and one of his stipulations was that the car be named for his daughter, Mercedes! You can read the whole story on History.com.

On a related note, on this day in 19-something, I was born! We’ve been linked since the beginning – Mercedes & Me!

Mille Miglia Photos

If you have not seen any photos from the Mille Miglia that took place earlier this month you really must have a look! Stunning cars and stunning scenery!

From the Mercedes-Benz Facebook Page:

Why race in the Mille Miglia Historica? For one thing, because of our record-breaking win at the original race back in 1955; for another, just look at these photos! A rolling display of some of history’s greatest Mercedes-Benz vehicles, stunning scenery and a helping of la dolce vita: that’s what keeps us coming back for more. Here’s just a small sample of the 1000-mile route.

Autoweek Visits the Mercedes-Benz Museum!

mercedes stuttgart

I am a huge fan of the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart. I visited in 2008 and I always tell people the 6 hours I spent there were not nearly enough! The automotive history is impressive and the vehicles themselves are works of art! It looks like Autoweek had a good time too!

If you take European Delivery of your new Mercedes-Benz we’ll buy the tickets!

“The history lesson was welcome and we would have enjoyed the well-planned displays even if the placards didn’t make space for English translations.”

“Galleries devoted to “voyagers” (buses, touring vehicles and wagons) “carriers” (buses and auto haulers) and “helpers” (fire, police and service vehicles) grabbed our attention as firmly as the Gullwings did, though we never want to see a Unimog as spic-and-span clean as the ones displayed at the museum are ever again.”

“We struggled to put a dollar value on the Silver Arrows before us — $150 million? $250 million? Priceless? — before resigning ourselves to simply enjoying the banked display setup.”
