I am back from another European Delivery adventure! In early April I picked up this 2015 S550 coupe from the factory in Sindelfingen and embarked on my second European Delivery adventure. I call this S550 coupe Bertie and he will be available for sale when he arrives back at Atlanta Classic Cars in 6-8 weeks. I intend to write more detailed reviews and trip notes later but I wanted to include some highlights ASAP!
We visited the famed Nurburgring, and while we could not drive Bertie on the track we experienced quite a bit of amateur racing!
Bertie could not take a bad picture, but the scenic countryside in The Netherlands was like being in a postcard! The Kuekenhof Gardens are a must-see in April/May.
We also visited a lot of big cities, including Brussels, Belgium.
There just wasn’t a bad stop! As always, everything with Mercedes-Benz was top-notch. I cannot say enough great things about the drive, comfort and speed of the S550. The Black Forest hotels were perfect in every way. Feel free to call or e-mail with any specific questions. I will post more as I go through my pictures and get settled back in!
Once you are a member of the MBCA you simply log into the website and buy as many $50 tickets as you want! I bought two. I’m feeling exceptionally lucky. Then, when I win, I simply contact the dealer of my choice (me) and place my order!
If you happen to win instead of me, you can order your AMG GT S from me and we both kind of win!
If you decide to join the Club use my reference number and I get a free month of membership. C119523
I have had a few questions about this vehicle recently. It is currently a concept car and is not scheduled to be produced. The concepts and technologies are being tested and shown as a demonstration of what could be…down the line. It looks like the future is a little early!
Mercedes-Benz took home three trophies at the World Car Awards announced at the New York International Auto Show this week! “The World Car Awards (WCA) are more than just an awards program. The WCA’s judging panel is made up of 75 prominent automotive journalists from around the world that form a global community of experts. The jurors ensure the integrity and credibility of the awards but also serve as an important resource for the industry with a focus on excellence and innovation on a global scale.”
“Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars said, “The C-Class is a best seller that has always been a trendsetter in the premium medium-size category. This is true for the new C-Class as well. It comes to the starting line with qualities usually reserved for higher-class automobiles – ecologically, technically and also with regard to comfort and driving pleasure. It embodies what we understand modern automotive luxury made by Mercedes-Benz to be and has all the prerequisites to be a huge success. Accordingly we are extremely delighted of winning the honour of WORLD CAR OF THE YEAR.”
Wheel & Tire, as we commonly refer to it, is just one of many protection plans that Mercedes-Benz Financial Services offers to our customers. You do not have to lease or finance to take advance of these products. As a salesperson it is important to me that my customers have the coverage that matters to them. A flat tire in your new car is sad…but getting it fixed at no charge is helpful. Your teenager curbing two wheels is sad…but getting it touched up at no charge is awesome!
I have countless stories of customers who would have been out thousands of dollars if they had not purchased Wheel & Tire. And I have plenty of customers that just have the curb rash touched up at no charge every time they are in the neighborhood. There are lots of benefits!
Ask your local finance manager about Wheel & Tire Protection Plus as well as the other products from Mercedes-Benz Financial!
“I’m happy to hear from her, actually, because the Sprinter 4×4 I’m driving is so vast that you need to do a head count every time you climb aboard, and I wasn’t a hundred percent sure we hadn’t left her at that McDonald’s back in North Carolina.”
“The backup camera is nine feet off the ground (I measured), which makes it look like you’re watching drone footage every time you put the van in reverse.”
