Thanks for visiting my blog! Please contact me if you're thinking about purchasing a Mercedes-Benz in the
Our very first 2013 Cinnabar Red vehcile arrived over the weekend and I thought a little comparison was in order. From left to right you have a 2013 ML350 in Cinnabar Red, a 2013 CLS550 in Storm Red and a 2013 C250 in Mars Red. Cinnabar Red is the least red of the group. I would say it is a reddish-brown with lots of copper metallic. The Storm Red is what I would call a candy apple red. Mars Red is the traditional bright red you would expect for a color called Red. I know pictures are no substitute for seeing them in person…but I perhaps side-by-side it will help you see the scale of red-ness.
This 2012 ML350 already has an owner but it is the first one I have seen with this interior combination! This is the Auburn Brown/Black Leather and the Brown Satin Ash Wood trim. Both are special order options.
The Brown Satin Ash Wood trim feels very smooth and silky. You can actually feel the grain of the wood on the dashboard sections. It would be great for hiding fingerprints that show on the glossy finishes!
I love the full leather interiors on the 2012 ML-Class. The contrast piping and additional stitching look like a million dollars! I have now seen the Auburn Brown/Black leather interior with Black, Dakota Brown and Diamond White paints. It worked with all of them!
Sold – March 2012
Our first 2012 ML63 AMG arrived at the dealership today! It is Black with Black Leather and all of the bells and whistles. I took it for a test drive and I am a big fan! It is easy to drive but has an amazing kick when you ask for it. The exhaust note is fantastic! It is currently without an owner and looking for a good home!
2012 Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG
The 2012 ML350 has been a huge success! It is a pleasure to drive, gets excellent fuel economy and has great options! Several of my previous M-Class owners have ordered their new 2012 ML350s and have taken advantage of a few special order options that Mercedes-Benz makes available. The options aren’t listed in the Build Your Own section of MBUSA.com but can be added by your salesperson for a $250 special order charge plus the cost of the option. Maybe one of these options will make the it absolute perfect vehicle for you!
The Foldable Cargo Liner has been available for the GL-Class for a few months and is now available for the 2006-2011 ML-Class. The mat for the 2012 M-Class should be available next month. This is a really handy accessory for drivers who want to protect the carpeted cargo area from spills and scuffs while still folding the seats at will. You can order this item from your local parts department.

“No rational person can make an argument for buying a 525-hp SUV. The fact that AMG offers a performance package that bumps the power up to 557 hp makes me believe there aren’t a lot of rational people responsible for building them, either. Have we mentioned we love AMG?”
“Even with a 40/60 front/rear power split, the stability control won’t allow you to drive the car with the throttle. Once things start to get out of shape, the electronics call a timeout and reel things back in. It is amazing just how hard you have to push to find those limits, and the idea of any rational person finding them is unlikely.”
“Interior quality took a major leap forward in the redesigned ML, and the AMG version takes it another step farther. Material quality is luxurious and attention to detail abounds in spots only contortionists would be able to see. Even the doorjambs look as though they spent time in the design department to match the clean, uncluttered aesthetic.”
“Herr Kallenius boasts that the new ML 63 AMG is the most powerful SUV for sale today. In the same train of thought, he also says the AMG biturbo V-8 is among the cleanest engines for the power output. “AMG is a test lab for new technology that will trickle down into lower segments at Mercedes.”"
Just in time for holiday travel…(this kind of thing actually happens at my house!)
