Learn more about Mercedes-Benz luxury models.
Mercedes-Benz’s range of cars is extensive, but as a car enthusiast, you likely know the difference between an accessible daily driver and a true luxury vehicle.
With a long reputation for durability, reliability, and high quality, Benz has won countless awards for their design and construction.
While it would take forever to talk about every single Mercedes model out there, there are several that we can’t help but discuss.
Let’s start with the AMG GT, a coupe and roadster sports car that’s been in production since 2014. The GT is just the base-level variant of this incredible vehicle, but that shouldn’t fool you into thinking it’s anything like a regular entry-level car. Mercedes has improved upon the original with the AMG GT S, AMG GT C, and AMG GT R with increasing performance capabilities. And you can’t forget the GT and GT C roadsters that have been in production since 2016.
The 300 SLR is one of the most groundbreaking cars of all time. With its gullwing doors, this 1955 car put Mercedes’ name on the map for good. The SLR McLaren grand tourer that Mercedes developed with McLaren from 2003 to 2010 was an homage to the 300 SLR; it can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds.
The SLR McLaren was followed up with the SLS AMG, a front mid-engine sports car. It was the first Benz designed and built entirely from scratch by AMG and was inspired “spiritually” by the 300 SLR and “physically” by the SLR McLaren. All of these Mercedes-Benz SL-Class cars are remembered as some of the greatest cars in the company’s history.
The CLK GTR is both a sports and race car that competed in 1997, followed by the CLK LM. Then Mercedes built the CLK GTR road car that followed the design of the GTR. It was the most expensive production car ever built, to the tune of over $1.5 million USD. Mercedes made just 20 CLK GTR coupes, then moved to the CLK GTR roadster. Just six were ever created.
The Mercedes S-Class is a luxury series of full-size sedans and coupes. It is ranked as the best-selling luxury sedan in the world; despite their popularity, it’s still considered a super-luxury car.
Finally, you can’t leave out the Mercedes-Maybach. Maybach is now owned by Mercedes and the two teams worked together to create Mercedes-Maybach S560 and S650 sedans, which are the new name in elite luxury. They offer smooth rides in all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive for the S560 and S650 respectively.
No matter which super-luxury Mercedes you have, you likely know what a great vehicle you have on your hands. That’s why it’s so important to get the true value for the car.
