Little Violet Mercedes Benz MSB

This post is about little Violet Mercedes Benz MSB, find out why this Mercedes model is so popular. Well if it was real of course. So unlike my last post this post on Violet MSB will be optimised, not too much but enough to get myself to rank sky high in the car and automotive world. I’m going to write a few short paragraphs about Mercedes and other brands and their models, so that you could perhaps compare them with Little Violet Mercedes Benz MSB.

First of all, why is it Violet? To be fair I don’t know, it’s just a really random colour that I have picked up from the long list of colours, I personally like Violet, even though you don’t really see a lot of Violet cars driving around.

Secondly, why Mercedes Benz? To be fair, Mercedes Benz is my favourite car of all, a like absolutely everything about it, the style, the design, the interior, and that special feel when you sit into Mercedes you know that you are sitting in a proper car.

Thirdly, MSB model, as most of you probably checked MSB model doesn’t really exist, this is something I actually made up because I have a very rich imagination. MSB might become the next model of Mercedes Benz, but who knows.

I truly hope that if model will actually be realised, they will have little violet version for it as well. So then it could be truly called the Little Violet Mercedes Benz MSB. Then all the people will gladly come to my website to read this and many other exciting articles.

The car sales in March has reached the highest point in the past 10 yearsThe car sales in March has reached the highest point in the past 10 years.

This is the official statement from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders. In March 2014 there were 464,824 (almost half a million) new car registered, which is 17.7% higher than for the previous year. It’s important to point out that March generally is the most busiest month of the year for car sales. March brings almost 1/5 of all car sales per year. Mike Hawes, SMMT CEO, said the “surprisingly strong level of growth in sales was a reflection of intensifying consumer confidence.” Let us hope the trend will continue.

Audi Sales New RecordAudi has achieved a new sales record.

Following the UK sales success German car maker Audi has reached a new record selling more than 400,000 cars in the first quarter of 2014. This was most likely caused by a massive Audi’s success in China market.  But that’s not all, Audi has now showing a steady Sales grown over the last 51 consecutive months. Among the markets recording the biggest increases in volume were China, which saw an increase of 21.1 per cent, Germany, which was up by 12.4 per cent, and the UK, up 11.3 per cent.

Mercedes SL400Mercedes adds a new SL400 model to it’s range.

It has been announced that the Mercedes-Benz SL350 has been officially replaced with a more powerful version of this model – the new SL400. This will straighten up the current SL line-up.The SL400 is powered by Mercedes-Benz’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 direct injection petrol engine, unveiled in the new E400 early last year. With 328bhp and 354lb ft of torque, it delivers 26bhp and 81lb more than the naturally aspirated 3.5-litre V6 direct-injection petrol unit used by the SL350.

Mercedes Benz to Acquire Aston Martin

mercedes benz and ason martinRumour has it that one of the prestige car manufacturers Mercedes Benz is planning to Acquire Aston Martin, this would increase Mercedes stake in UK brand by a total of 5%.  With Mercedes technical expertises wide experience, Mercedes can add new successful models to Aston Martin line up.   It is not a top secret that Mercedes-Benz has been playing around with an idea of creating a premium SUV after presenting their Lagonda concept back in 2009 at Geneva Auto Show.

Dieter ZetscheIt is predicted that the potential future between two car manufacturers can go further beyond just one model. The merging will potentially bring new exciting models that will suite the needs for British customers. Here is an interesting quote from Mercedes CEO Dieter Zetsche that hasn’t really quelled the acquisition rumour. “Aston Martin is a fantastic brand, and we are willing to support its further development.”

This statement doesn’t really explain anything as you can tell, but it certainly doesn’t destroy the fact that the acquisition is a very likely event.

Mercedes Benz rivals are buying brands for themselves for ages now, for example BWM owns Rolls-Royce, and Volkswagen has Bentley. So it’s not a surprise that a big brand like Mercedes have decided to acquire another popular brand to keep it up with the competitors.

Please come back soon for more information on Mercedes, Aston Martin and other auto manufacturers and car accessories.

Mercedes 2014 S-class Coupe Revealed

S-Class Coupe Mercedes 2014Mercedes has revealed their brand new 2014 S-Class Coupe model. This new model is packed with a high end technologies such as the ability to lean into bends which is quite amazing and unique not just for Mercedes but for any car. Just like the S-Class Salon this model uses a system called Magic Body Control, which basically reads the road and improves ride comfort.
The external overview of the car is quite simply to concept car showed back in 2013 at Frankfurt Motor Show. However the internal design is a totally different thing. The design is what most people would call – quite aggressive and has a sporting appearance. Here is what Gorden Wagener the vice president of Daimler group has to say about the new S-Class Coupe model:

S-Class Coupe interrior“Our new S-Class Coupé is one of the most gorgeous coupés of all times, representing the most radical aesthetic departure from its predecessor.”

This might also be one of the first cars where what’s under the bonnet is not as interesting as what sits at the end of it: a full LED lighting system complemented by 47 Swarovski crystals (17 for the daytime running lights and 30 for the indicators). There are more LEDs at the back of the car, arranged in two rows across the broad rear panels.

S-Class Coupe Mercedes-Benz 2014The new S-Class Coupe will also feature a heads up display that shows important information on the windscreen – know isn’t that the car of the future? This car will be visible to general public on Geneva Motor Autoshow, which will take place on March 4th 2014. Don’t miss the chance to see all the coolest picture from that show on my blog!

Latest Updates on Michael Schumacher

Latest Updates on Michael SchumacherHere is some latest information on  Michael Schumacher condition and health. Now lately there has been a lot of speculation and theories on Michael Schumacher current condition. I just want to point out a few of them and highlight the most reliable sources. If you still didn’t have a chance to find out what happened with Michael Schumacher one month ago you can read it in my previous article.

Anyway, the latest information states that Michael has been given special muscle training to stop his body seizing up as enters his fifth week in hospital coma . Now this is a trustworthy information as it has come from doctors in the hospital. And there is no reasons to believe it is fake.

I have just find out that French newspaper L’Equipe states that medics have begun a special procedure to waken him up from the coma. However, more reliable sources from F1 point that medics want to give his brain more time to recover before taking further actions. Michael Schumacher manager has stated “I insist again on the fact that any statement on the health of Michael Schumacher that does not come from the medical team in charge or his management is just speculation.”

Latest Information on Michael SchumacherAnother source in Germany point that the awakening process is out on hold for a few more days. So it’s quite hard to say if doctors are actually planing such procedure or not.

The one thing that all doctors agree on is the fact that the longer Michael Schumacher will remain in coma the less his chances are to actually get better. Some doctors have already stated that the best case scenario for Michael Schumacher now is a long neurological rehabilitation recovery.

Please let me know what you think about Michael condition in the comment section.
