THE THREE POINTED-STAR ‘MERCEDES-BENZ’ REALLY GOES FOR IT
THE 7TH SUV IS A WIN
The shapely and lovely gardens of the ‘Torre dels Lleons’ (Picalquers’s Castle) in Esplugas de Llobregat turned into the suitable location for that official dealerships Mercedes-Benz Cars Barcelona and Autolica merged into an event and submit the brand-new Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe, according to their agenda of international promotion, to a colourful Catalan social call for, approximately, 600 guests on September 29th.
The new Mercedes GLC Coupé is the seventh SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) of Mercedes-Benz including compact dimensions and coupé styled, 4-door and with a length of 4,73 meters that calls you to concentrate on sculptural details, as for the twin exhaust pipes in the rear, the chrome double trim embracing the star in the front grille and the considerable air inlets on its front also.
The great dancer and choreographer Rafael Amargo, always cheerful and groundbreaking, put the artistic touch sponsoring the event by dancing a choreography under the artistic direction of ‘Soumahproject’ developed in 3 times with 3 different dance styles.
Amargo, who says that what he more wishes is non-stop work, has received nourished awards, including the following: the Dance Positano Leonide Massine Prize (the most valuable dance Italian distinction), as a dancer and choreographer; the Teachers’ Association of Spanish Dance and Flamenco dancing (APDE) award and 4 prizes Max of the performing arts: two for Amargo, one for ‘Poet in New York’ and one for ‘The bewitching love’. He was also nominated for the Olivier Awards as best choreographer in the musical ‘Zorro’ for London’s West End, which already has been represented in the United States, Moscow, Tokyo, Poland, Paris, Bulgaria and Czech Republic. And, today, he is developing his next show on tour, ‘Sencilla·mente’, to be released in 2017. I’m excited for the premiere!
During the party, orchestrated by a DJ, we also discovered the amazing services of the new Smart Brabus and Mercedes C Cabrio. To help you find your own style, Smart Brabus, through official dealers Mercedes-Benz Autolica and Cars Barcelona, offers you an extensive range of fitting made-to-measure accessories. And when I say ‘made-to-measure’ it is in the truest literal sense of the word because, one by one, they are customized in factory with a masterful craftsmanship using first quality materials and parts that are tested by the manufacturer with a full warranty. Which is your favourite? I prefer the Smart Brabus pale pink (see spanish version).
Apart from the unlimited options available, Smart buyers can contribute with creative ideas and give their vehicle their own personal touch. With the principle “anything is possible”, there are barely any limits: the exterior finishes in thousands of different colours, leather in 30 basic colours and exclusive design variants and 6 cabrio soft top colours are available.
‘Brabus’ means sportiness and dynamism.
In its exterior the radiator grille, headlights and metal rims from 16″-front and 17″-back in black colour, as well as the front spoiler, rear diffuser and Brabus brand, distinguish you from a conventional electric-drive Smart. Smart presented the Smart Brabus Electric Drive at the Geneva International Motor Show, sportier and faster.
At one point I showed curiosity about the Mercedes-Benz class C Cabrio exposed. From all its showcased virtues, I would like to refer to four characteristics: its ‘airscarf’ system, a virtual scarf that sends hot air to the neck of the pilot and co-pilot from channels integrated in the own seat back. Its large number of airbags (included in windows). The air conditioning system, which reacts according to the position of the top. And a system of protection in case of rolling.
In the absence of trying out the vehicles sending up a dust cloud around the site, the dealers hosts’ sales representatives, Autolica and Cars Barcelona, were busy with addressing reservations for driving test.
TREC’s partners, who were invited to this presentation as members of the press by Eloy Valero, press head, drank a few healthy drinks from free bar drinks and networked with colleagues and guests.
As I read in ‘Diariomotor’ newspaper, Mercedes-Benz has already its own BMW X6. Once again, Mercedes-Benz Spain, with Reiner Hoeps to the front from December 2015 and present, placed on display the engine industry with excellence and commitment.
