Top Gear – Stelvio Pass

Does anyone else take their travel advice from Top Gear? I am planning a driving vacation and actually used this video for reference. Stelvio Pass…here I come!

Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes – Starring the SL500!

Stephen King Mercedes book

Any press is good press, right? The murder weapon in Stephen Kings’ new book is a Mercedes-Benz SL500. That would be bad for the company image…except he does have some good things to say about the car!

From StephenKing.com:

“The front end of the SL500 was only slightly crumpled—that famous German engineering—but the hood and the windshield were spattered with gore.”

““How hard would it be for someone to slim-jim a window?” Hodges had asked the mechanic. “Pop the lock that way?” “All but impossible,” the mechanic had said. “These Mercs are built. If someone did manage to do it, it would leave signs.””

The third button was labeled PANIC. Presumably if a mugger attacked you as you were unlocking your car, you could push that one and the car would start screaming for help.”

““I’ve worked at Ross since 1987. Must have seen a thousand Mercs go out the door since then, and I can tell you they all go out with two keys.””

A couple of reviews have included a tidbit about the car that is obviously wrong:

“The following morning, during an “anti-dawn, damp and cold as the cheek of a day-old corpse,” a gray Mercedes-Benz SL500 “not just emerging from the fog but seeming to create itself from it” aims for the huddled masses, 12 cylinders screaming.”

Let’s hope that is just from the reviews and not from the book itself!

Mercedes-Benz Concept Coupe SUV – Coming Soon?

Mercedes X6

This vehicle hit the Future Vehicles section at MBUSA.com recently:

  • 333-hp,  V6 gasoline Engine
  • 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive
  • 9G-TRONIC PLUS nine-speed automatic transmission with torque converter lock-up, twin-turbine damper with centrifugal pendulum and DIRECT SELECT gearshift
  • Dynamic Select Control with four different transmission modes
  • “Alu Beam” paint finish, reminiscent of the groundbreaking Silver Arrows of the 1930s and 1950s
  • Frameless side windows
  • Integrated, illuminated side sills
  • BAS PLUS and PRE-SAFE® Brake
  • 22-inch wheels

Some or all of this could make it into production next year. What do you think? I’m almost sure this is an answer to a question no one is asking but maybe I am mistaken! It looks great from this angle:

Mille Miglia Photos

If you have not seen any photos from the Mille Miglia that took place earlier this month you really must have a look! Stunning cars and stunning scenery!

From the Mercedes-Benz Facebook Page:

Why race in the Mille Miglia Historica? For one thing, because of our record-breaking win at the original race back in 1955; for another, just look at these photos! A rolling display of some of history’s greatest Mercedes-Benz vehicles, stunning scenery and a helping of la dolce vita: that’s what keeps us coming back for more. Here’s just a small sample of the 1000-mile route.

Drive Kit Plus for iPhone 5 5C and 5S for Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class

The Drive Kit Plus is available as a dealer installed option for many Mercedes-Benz models. This accessory allows you to control many of your iPhone features from the vehicle controls.

Mercedes-Benz has just announced that the new Drive Kit Plus for the iPhone 5 is now available as a VPC installed option for the CLA-Class for $700! This will save you labor charges at the dealership and make sure it is ready to go when the car arrives.

Also, VPC installed options can be added to the vehicle after it has already been built, but before it gets to the port. So, if you have a CLA-Class on the way and decide the Drive Kit Plus would be a good option for you, your dealer should be able to add it on!

2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model 4Matic Wagon – AutoWeek Review

E63 AMG S-model

I don’t think I have ever read such a positive review! As far as I know there is only ONE E63 AMG S-Model Wagon in Atlanta. You could join a very exclusive club!

Full AutoWeek Review Notes

“This 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model 4Matic Wagon is the rare six-figure car that  in my opinion is worth the money. Rare? In fact, at the moment, I can’t think of  another one.”

“I’ve driven far more expensive cars that didn’t offer the E63 AMG wagon’s level  of visceral engagement.”

“The E63 AMG wagon is an exclusive, attractive, high-performance family machine  that looks insanely badass and delivers on every front.”

“But its torque, power, traction and utility make the E63 one of the baddest creations available to well-heeled enthusiasts. Its existence alone makes me  wish I fit that description.”

“But this, this glorious, coddling, cosseting, bahn-burning, screaming machine.  Every moment with this Benz only reminds you how lucky you are. And that feeling  counts for a lot.”

“It’s sinister looking and will make you chuckle when you push the engine start  button and the engine barks to life with a thunderous exhaust note. Give the  right pedal a couple of jabs and the chuckles become laughs. The first  expressway acceleration run with the throttle pinned brings more laughs along  with amazement about what the car can do and that a company would actually build  something like this.”
