Black Swan Race Team is based in Boston running an SLS AMG GT3 in the SCCA Pirelli World Challenge series this year. Black Swan Racing Team owner and driver Tim Pappas is a long time AMG customer and enthusiast, and runs a top notch Team operation. They are committed to the SLS AMG GT3 Customer Sport program in the long run which might include the new IMSA United Sports Car Racing series launching in 2014 which is a merger of the Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series and the American LeMans Series and will include such world class endurance racing events as the Rolex 24 at Daytona, Sebring 12 Hours, Watkins Glen 6 Hours and Petit LeMans at Road Atlanta, along with a full slate of shorter races around the US.
Our own Will Vetter from AMG Product Management spent some time with the Tim and the Black Swan Team at the recent race at Lime Rock Park.
Ever since this commercial started airing customers have been coming in and asking for “the thing with the girl and the soccer ball.” So, for clarification, that “thing” is Distronic PLUS with PRE-SAFE and Pedestrian Recognition. This is part of the Driver Assistance Package on the 2014 E-Class.
Here is a video about how it actually works.
Here are 5 full minutes of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class driving around and showing off what makes it the most amazing vehicle in the world! Coming this fall to the US.
This is a great 15 minute video of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class being developed from clay model to test track to production.
Interesting moments for me:
It was a great weekend for Mercedes in Formula 1 and I do like it when the drivers don’t take themselves too seriously!
Atlanta Classic Cars installed our first Illuminated Star on a 2014 Mercedes-Benz E350 today! I was worried it would be a little too flashy but it is well done and fairly subtle. It really does add a WOW factor the the vehicle! It was hard to take good pictures in the daytime but I did want to show how the housing for the bulbs is a full star and circle behind the chrome emblem.
I have often heard it described as the answer to a question that no one asked. However, it is the favorite of many enthusiasts and gets rave reviews from anyone who drives it! You know you want one!
Mercedes-Benz TV has posted a preview video for the 2014 Mercedes-benz S-Class! The official press launch will be this Wednesday!
European Delivery is a popular option for sedan and convertible buyers but my SUV owners don’t have that option because most SUVs are built in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The Mercedes-Benz US International factory is award-winning, constantly expanding and world-class. Come on Mercedes-Benz, show it off! Give us an Alabama Delivery option!
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class should be arriving any minute now and it has some exciting new technology! This is the first of our vehicles to get the Steering Assist upgrade to the Distronic Plus. Now the radar can keep you both an appropriate distance from the vehicle in front and in the center of your lane. This system uses the electromechanical steering to stay centered as oppsed to using the brakes like Active Lane Keep Assist. I can’t wait to try it out! Also, doesn’t the 2014 E-Class look great in this video?
