Things continue to improve in the Mercedes-Benz business. It’s nice to see how things have improved from the same time last year. Here is the official press release and the sales figures for the month of November 2010. Another 36 SLS AMG gullwing cars were delivered in November, our second SLS will be ready for delivery to its new owner in February I believe… that’s pretty exciting.
E and GL class vehicles are selling really well which is great to see. Quality vehicles continue to do well despite a slowly recovering economy.
