Mercedes Unveils Record Number of World Premieres in Frankfurt
At the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz has celebrated more world premieres than they have at any other auto show in their history. In true car show fashion, MB flamboyantly unveiled some serious chatter-worthy rides. After the jump, check out the video of the fanfare, as well as descriptions of all the dazzling world premieres.
Center stage was the second generation B-Class with an entirely
re-designed body, reflecting the impressive dynamic performance of the
all new four cylinder engine with direct injection and turbocharging as
well as the new diesel engine. The new design makes the B-Class the most
spacious car in its class. Equipped with state of the art assist
systems, radar based collision warning system and PRE-SAFE, the new
B-Class sets a new standard for the compact car segment.
The SLS AMG Roadster equipped with an AMG 6.3 liter V8 front-mid engine
is guaranteed to make the hearts of sports car enthusiasts beat faster
and the SLK 55 AMG is the most powerful SLK of all time while the SLK
250 CDI proves that diesel drive and roadster excitement go very well go
together. The sportscar accelerates from 0 – 100 in mere 6.7 seconds
with an outstanding fuel consumption of 4.9 liter per 100 kilometer. Spectacular design and technology from the world of motorsport
is the DNA of the C63 AMG Coupe Black Series, a head turner that is grabbing attention worldwide.
On the road to emission free driving, smart will premiere the smart
fortwo electriv drive slated to come to the market in the spring of
2012. With a maximum power output of 55 kW, a top speed of over 120 km/h
and and extended range of 140 km – the smart is the perfect car for
inner city driving.
And perhaps most buzzworthy of all, Mercedes also unveiled its f125 concept. This hydrogen/electric test vehicle gets upwards of 600 miles per gallon.
