Join us on October 8 and 9 for the 2016 Atlanta Concours d’Elegance at Chateau Elan Winery and Resort. An exciting event. A beautiful venue. Sure to become one of Atlanta’s premier Fall events, don’t miss this rare multi-million dollar collection of vintage classic automobiles displayed on the fairways of Chateau Elan.
It’s here! The smallest member of our Cabriolet family has arrived. The Selenite Grey car is the first 2017 C300 Cabriolet to arrive at the dealership and I am impressed! I parked it next to the black S550 to highlight the family resemblance.
Several people walked by it while I was taking pictures and thought I had two S-Class cabriolets lined up!
These two look especially similar with red interiors and the multispoke wheel.
The C-Class has all of the things that make the Cabriolet wonderful – Airscarf, Aircap and the windscreen. The Cranberry red leather is lovely too!
Look at those tails! You can see that the C300 is smaller but it has a lot of the same lines!
This has come up a few times recently so I thought I would highlight the issue.
Most Mercedes-Benz sedans now have a switch in the glove box to lock the trunk. When this is slid to the locked position the trunk will not open with the key, the handle or the door switch. It is not broken!
The idea is that you can then manually lock the glove box with the blade key, take that with you and now a valet/child/spouse can’t access these areas.
These vehicles were developed as a partnership between Daimler and Renault. There are shared items including the platform, engine and lots of switches! There are also differences. Take a look and see what you think!
I also made a video if you like your pictures moving.
