The Mercedes-Benz Star – An Evolution

Classic Mercedes Star There is no logo more iconic than the Mercedes-Benz star! It is one of the most recognized brand symbols in the world! The three pointed star represents the drive toward universal motorization with its engines dominating the land, sea, and air. Over the years the logo has incorporated other elements like the laurel wreath for racing heritage, new colors for print and digital publishing and just recently, the Social Distance Star. This star was designed by a fan - @Marcel_lo_loca on Instagram! If you take a look back through the years there have been huge variations. I picked up the red pin above at the Delivery Center in Sindelfingen many years ago and it one of my favorites. Mercedes Star distancing While we are all keeping our distance, this might be an excellent time to learn more about the history of the star and of the brand. The Mercedes-Benz Museum has a full digital tour available that will take you through all of the floors as well as the special exhibits that you cannot currently see at the museum in Stuttgart. (They are closed to visitors during Spring 2020.) I have visited several times over the years and ranked it #1 on my Car Museums of Europe Tour! The museum is best enjoyed by taking an elevator to the top and the spiraling down from the first vehicle to the future of the automobile! The race car section is one of my favorites. Here is the link to the Mercedes-Benz Museum website so you can take your tour and decide for yourself! Mercedes-Benz Museum Digital Tour I certainly miss travelling and look forward to getting back to the museum soon! Every time I have visited there have been new exhibits to explore. Maybe with a little peace and quiet there will be a major revamp while we are all kept away.
Mercedes-Benz European Delivery on Hold – March 23, 2020

Mercedes Euro Delivery Daimler has closed their offices in Europe for at least the next two weeks and cannot currently accommodate European Delivery picks-ups. They are working closely with MBUSA and will direct ship these vehicles to your home dealership without penalty. This is the plan until at least mid-April. This is a fluid situation and will be updated as it evolves. If you have a European Delivery scheduled and are concerned about your travel plans please reach out to your dealership. They will be able to offer you alternatives and make suggestions to minimize the disruption. If you currently have cabin fever and are dreaming about your next trip, please consider European Delivery! It is a wonderful opportunity to drive your own vehicle in Europe and see things you might not see from a tour bus or at a resort. I know this is not the moment to be finalizing plans but it doesn't hurt to start dreaming early!
Mercedes-Benz European Delivery in a C300 Coupe!

Mercedes European Delivery Another great European Delivery Experience! Alyson picked up her latest Mercedes-Benz via Euro Delivery and then went on a birthday road trip! Let's start at the beginning. European Delivery Center Sindelfingen Alyson's lease was ending and it was time to pick out her next Mercedes-Benz. She was kind of thinking about a trip to Europe to celebrate her birthday so we were able to combine the two experiences. She chose a gorgeous C300 coupe in Magno Matte Selenite. While the C300 sedan is not available for European Delivery (because they are mostly built in Tuscaloosa) the coupe and cabriolet still come from Germany! So, we ordered the car, completed the leasing paperwork and off she went! Mercedes Euro Delivery C300 After picking up her new car at the Kundencenter in Sindelfingen, Alyson planned a tour of castles and mountains through Germany, Austria, Italy and finishing in Nice, France. Luggage for two (including some unexpected gear to deal with a broken foot) were loaded into the car without issue. Her favorite part of the trip was driving through the mountains with her sporty new car and feeling out the capabilities. Mercedes EDP The car caused quite a stir everywhere she went! The lines of the coupe are really highlighted by the matte paint and the ambient lighting on the interior is quite a show at night! Alyson said people were literally turning their heads to watch it drive by. They drove through small towns, on twisty mountain roads and into large cities without issue.  Prague may have been the tightest squeeze but that is when you let the valet take over. European Delivery Lease After her grand tour, Alyson left the car in Nice and came back to Atlanta. Seven weeks later the C300 has arrived! It feels so good to be reunited. Now the plan will be to get close to the end of the lease and then plan another adventure! Thanks for coming along on Alyson's birthday road trip! If you are thinking about a European Adventure of your own please do get in touch! I can help anywhere in the country and make your experience one to remember! Visit the European Delivery Site and then "Watch the Video" - third arrow link on the left - to see me picking up a car!
Mercedes-Benz European Delivery Program – E450, CLS53 and E63 Wagon!

E450 Mercedes European Delivery It was a busy spring on my European Delivery calendar! I had three clients picking up within a month of each other and every one of them made it a different experience. Two of the cars made it back to the dealership this week so it seemed like a good time to share. 1 - E450 Cabriolet - Roadtrip The gorgeous Rubellite Red E450 with Red top and Titian Red dashboard was the first car to make it back to the dealership. These folks planned a trip similar to my first European Delivery experience. It was go-go-go from the moment they landed. They picked up the car in the delivery center in Sindelfingen and then hit the road. They did 1500 miles in about 10 days and visited several countries! They reported that it was much easier to drive in Germany and Italy then they had expected and had no issues with parking. Even with a cabriolet they were able to take all of their gear and ride in comfort. E450 Euro Delivery 2 - CLS53 - Stopover CLS European Delivery This lovely couple already had a grand European adventure planned including a few days in Rome and a river boat cruise. They were able to squeeze in the pick-up of their CLS53 at the Center of Excellence in Sindelfingen at the start of their trip. They enjoyed the excellent hospitality, tour of the factory and dramatic unveiling of their new car. They just drove it a few miles that day and dropped it off but it was still a memorable experience! 3 - E63 AMG - Extended Adventure E63 Mercedes European Delivery Can you imagine a better vehicle for an extended tour of Europe than the E63 wagon? This client had a lot of friends and family to visit over the course of a month and tied that together with the delivery of his new Lunar Blue E63! He was able to travel at his own pace, take all his gear and enjoy some autobahn time in the new car! This car will arrive in Atlanta in a few weeks and he plans to fly in to take another long road trip home to Colorado! Mercedes-Benz European Delivery Center There is no right or wrong way to experience the European Delivery Program! I can tell you how I have done it, how others have done it and help you customize the experience for yourself. Many of my clients are also open to sharing their experience directly with you if you need to talk it over! Please do let me know if I can help you plan your adventure! E-mail me, call me, let's make some memories!

Pick up your 2018 C43 and C63 Coupe or Cabriolet via European Delivery – Now with a 5% Discount!

Bertha S550 Sindelfingen The AMG models have been excluded from the European Delivery Program discounts for years...but that is changing! The 2018 Mercedes-AMG C43 and C63 coupe and cabriolet will be available, starting August 2017, with a 5% discount! You can pick up this car in Sindelfingen or Bremen! September would be an amazing month for a top down tour of Germany! There are a lot of reasons to opt for a European Delivery and the discount offered on most models has always been a strong incentive. Most models qualify for a 7% discount as well as having the $925 destination fee waived! The European Delivery trip includes one night at a great hotel, taxi vouchers and a meal at the delivery center. Mercedes-Benz now offers a $200 waiver on Delta (direct flights from ATL to STR)! In short, this is a deal! The AMG and S-Class vehicles would also qualify for a Center of Excellence Delivery if you would like to spend some additional time with the Mercedes-Benz experts at the factory and have a four course meal! mercedes restaurant So, let's do the math! You want a 2018 C43 cabriolet this fall. MSRP is about $70,000. Let's subtract the $925 destination fee and then 5% (about $3500) and you get a sale price around $65,500! That $4500 in savings will easily pay for airfare for two ($400 Delta discount applies!) and a week of fun in Europe! If you want a $100,000 C63 S you save even more! You do have the option to lease, purchase or pay cash when you take delivery in Europe. It is kind of like taking delivery in the US, except you get to do it twice! You'll meet your new car for the first time in Germany and then, six to eight weeks later, you meet her again in the US! I can even make arrangements to have it shipped to a dealership closer to your home if you do not live in the Atlanta area! So, if there weren't enough reason to love the C43 and C63, now you can love them in Europe!
