Learn more about Mercedes-Benz luxury models.
Mercedes-Benz offers an extensive range of cars. As a car enthusiast, however, you likely know the difference between an accessible daily driver and a true luxury vehicle. After all, it’s why you chose this brand in the first place.
Benz has garnered countless awards over the years for the design of these luxury vehicles that are well-known for being durable, reliable, and overall of top-notch quality. As much as we love these cars, it would take forever to talk about every single Mercedes model out there. So, we want to take the time to focus on a few exceptional models that we can’t help but discuss.
In production since 2014, the AMG GT coupe is a roadster that’s been grabbing attention since its debut. The GT is just the base-level variant of this special 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.
When you choose this vehicle, no matter the specific variant, you know you’re getting something incredible.
The 300 SLR is one of the most groundbreaking vehicles ever made. 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 a homage to the 300 SLR. Speedsters love it for its ability to 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. This vehicle was inspired “spiritually” by the 300 SLR and “physically” by the SLR McLaren, making it a perfect combination of both.
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 such widespread popularity, it’s still considered a super-luxury car.
Of course, no discussion of luxury Benz models is complete without the Mercedes-Maybach. Maybach is now owned by Mercedes; 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 is why it’s so important to get the true value for the car.
