Owing to the economic necessity created by the First World War, which ended in 1918, Benz and Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschat signed an agreement of mutual economic interest, in 1924. The two companies merged on June 28, 1926, and a unique logo was designed for the car. The new emblem was a three-pointed star wreathed with a laurel. This merger brought prosperity to the companies. The production of Mercedes-Benz rose to 7,918 automobiles by 1927. Mercedes enjoys a global presence and as such, their dealerships promises great offers.
Among all Mercedes cars sold in Canada, the most convenient and road-friendly Mercedes Benz is the Mercedes C class series. The Mercedes Benz 2006 C class includes sedans. The sedans are available with the new V6 engine technology with a high-tech seven-speed automatic transmission.
The Mercedes-Benz SLK model, however, is designed for the rich and famous. A new generation of high-tech, scratch-resistant vinyl was developed for the SLK class to offer a more glamorous appearance. The SLK model runs on a super-smooth soundproof engine. A touch of a button on the key fob converts the car into a closed coupe with a hard top. The present day SLK is a sleek sports car, deviating from its original road cruiser design and is a popular Mercedes Benz variety.
The term classic auto or classic car in common parlance is used to describe any antique car belonging to an era gone by. But, the term ‘classic’ Mercedes Benz Toronto is expected to be much more specific in meaning at times. For example, authorities define classic cars as those, which have been manufactured between 1925 and 1948.
These cars are now strictly collector’s items and carry truly prohibitive price tags. Even then there are enthusiasts ready to shell out huge sums of money to get their hands on a classic car of their choice. The norms set by the CCCA for classification of a car as a ‘classic’ is, ‘… a fine or distinctive automobile, either American or foreign built, produced between 1925 and 1940.’
Other factors, including engine displacement, custom coachwork and luxury accessories such as power brakes, power clutch, and ‘one-shot’ or automatic lubrication systems, help determine whether a car is classic or not. The SLK model may not feature in this list but in the modern sense of the term Classic, it sure is a beauty to behold.
