I was hunting for a car on the lot the other day and I noticed that we have quite a collection of interiors! I’m going to let these speak for themselves. Hover over the picture for the color name and click to enlarge! Check out the Mercedes-Benz designo page for more info on those exclusive leathers.
This Diamond White 2014 Mercedes-Benz SL550 arrived on the showroom this week and it keeps catching my eye! I’m not normally wowed by red leather or aluminum trim but together, on this car, they are something special. I can’t photograph it accurately but I did my best!
Don’t they look happy to have a new car? And what a gorgeous car it is! I especially enjoyed the Driver Assistance Package while cruising the back roads of Georgia. The Distronic PLUS made is such a relaxing drive and the Active Lane Keeping Assist corrected me a couple of times when I took my eyes off of the road. Also impressive was the mileage…429 horsepower should not get over 27 mpg!
The return trip was in a 2005 Mercedes-Benz SLK350. This car has always had excellent go-cart handling and with more than 80,000 miles on the odometer it was still tight and responsive.
And another winner in the fuel economy department. 302 horsepower with aggressive backroads driving and I still clocked in over 25 mpg!
It was a great day for a couple of great roadsters!
When the 2013 SL550 was released earlier this year there was a limited supply of the Edition 1 models available. They sold out quickly and were in very high demand. Atlanta Classic Cars was lucky enough to trade one in with just 600 miles this week! The previous owner had the K40 radar and Clarbra installed. Since it looks brand new, it is on the new car showroom! Call me if you are interested!
The 2013 SL550 “Edition 1” will celebrates the introduction of the all-new sixth generation SL-Class. This limited production special edition features exclusive features inside and out, include a unique exterior paint which is only available for this model. Additional details include contrast stitching throughout the cabin and a full designo treatment, including upholstery, trim and headliner.
