The first 2011 E350 BlueTECs arrived at Atlanta Classic Cars yesterday. 2 were ordered and are already home with their new owners but we still have one for sale! It is Iridium Silver with the Grey/Black interior, Premium 1 Package and Sport Package. This is the first time we have been able to order a Sport Package for the diesel! Also, the AdBlue fluid has been added to make it an even cleaner burning diesel. Both the luxury and sport models ride on 17" runflat tires.
I went for a long test drive this morning and the car is stunning. The ride is smooth and quiet with just a tiny bit of diesel rumble. It is powerful! You can feel the engine wanting to go fast!
I ordered this gorgeous E-Class a few months ago for a client of mine who shares my enthusiasm for wagons! Capri Blue with Mocha/Almond Interior, Premium 1 Package, Luxury Package and Driver Assistance Package. It is such a good looking car! The brushed aluminum roof rails are my favorite accent. Our next wagon is scheduled for production in June.
These are the official photos of the 2011 E-Class Cabriolet. It is expected to be available for sale in May of 2010 as the E350 and E550. The specifications, options and pricing are not yet available but I am taking deposits to be on the Atlanta Classic Cars order list. In 2003, when the last cabriolet was launched, there was a significant waiting list. So far the list is short, but now that the pictures are out there more and more people will be ready to order.
The AIRCAP system on the 2011 E-Class Cabriolet will continue to increase the amount of time you can enjoy your Mercedes with the top down. Building on the AIRSCARF system currently available on the SLK and SL, AIRCAP will create a calm air zone in the passenger compartment making it both more comfortable at higher speeds and easier to heat or cool. A front deflector raises up from the top of the windshield to both redirect air higher over the passenger cabin and allow air slowed down by its screen to enter the cabin and maintain a pocket of calmer air.
Current CLK Cabriolet owners will enjoy not having to install and uninstall a wind deflector anymore. Additionally, you will be able to raise and lower the top at speeds below 25mph.
The DVD of my presentation that won me the 2010 E-Class Walk Around National Championship has finally arrived. This is a 15 minute presentation, tailored to a client interested in Technology, and my goal was to get the maximum points on the scoresheet. This isn't how I would normally present to a new client in the showroom but it is a great way to pack in a lot of information! I hope you enjoy it! If you enjoy this video, check out my presentation from 2007 when I won the 2008 C-Class Walk Around.
Atlanta Classic Cars has 2 unsold 2010 E63s scheduled to arrive before the end of the year. These vehicles are still in transit from Germany but should arrive in early December. These are our first E63s that are not pre-sold!
#1 Steel Grey Black Leather Black Ash Wood Trim Premium 2 Package Parktronic Driver Asistance Package Illuminated Door Sills MSRP $97895
#2 Black Black Leather Black Ash Wood Trim Premium 2 Package MSRP $93225
The 2010 E63 has been a hot commodity for the last few months! Every one we have had has been pre-sold so I haven't even had a chance to drive one yet. Maybe one of these will make it here without a deposit and I'll get a chance. Maybe not! Please get it touch if one of the E63s should have your name on it!
Thanks for helping me acquire my second Mercedes-Benz! Since I had to order the E550 coupe, I honestly didn't know what to expect. You were very helpful in guiding my decision process around the right options in the car and my expectations were exceeded. Also, during the process of waiting for the car to arrive you were very good about communicating the steps in the process and thus keeping me informed.
You won my business away from Audi and BMW, as I had considered the S5 and the 335i. Besides the fact that the E550 coupe is an incredible car, I feel confident knowing that Atlanta Classic Cars stands confidently behind it. The car represents a huge technological leap and excellence in performance and luxury. Two of my favorite things about the car (and my friends have noted this as well) is how smooth and quiet the car is. The technology is incredible - I'm really impressed with the automatic brights, the backup camera, and the seamless audio/phone integration and the navigation/COMAND system. I love the pillarless design and the panoramic roof (in addition to the power and technology) - passengers have commented that they really enjoy the back seats which is unusual for a coupe. From someone who has had an M3 coupe as well, I can say this is a unique comment for a coupe!
I hope to be a repeat customer. P.S. Thanks for the Pirelli P-zero tires! 🙂
So...Dieter Zetsche wasn't actually there, but MBUSA President and CEO Ernst Lieb was one of the judges for my presentation!
This week I had the honor of representing the Southern Region and Atlanta Classic Cars in the 2010 E-Class Walk-Around National Finals in Denver. Two years ago I won the C-Class Walk-Around Competition for the Southern Region but they didn't have a national competition. This time I had to compete against every salesperson in the whole country. I won at the dealership, market, and regional levels on my way to the finals in Denver. My 15 minute presentation was tailored to a hypothetical client and highlighted many of the amazing innovations found in the 2010 E-Class Sedan. My 3 competitors and I were judged by the MBUSA Executive Management team and I was declared the National Champion!
I'll post some pictures and the video once I get them from the training department. Thank you to everyone who helped me prepare!
The competition was part of the National Dealer Meeting, so I was able to see (no cameras allowed) the new E-Class Cabriolet scheduled for release this spring and the SLS AMG! Both were spectacular and will be very successful!
