Any true legend owned a stylish car, but only the coolest of stars own a Mercedes-Benz. The different cars have their own story from the day they landed in the hands of their buyers until the day of their … gasp … burial; if, of course, that day ever comes. Just as their legend owners, these cars are immortal.
Presley’s Mercedes 600
Current owner of Elvis’s Mercedes S-Class 600, Eric Smith, feels there’s a living, breathing character in classic cars, according to Guernseys.com. Back then, they were all hand-built and quite rare. In a Mercedes-Benz.TV video, Smith explains the history of the vehicle.
Elvis bought the car new from a Memphis dealer and used it in the early 1970s during his Las Vegas revival special. It was a car he used extensively; not like the other cars he would buy, then give away to his associates when he was tired of them.

Yesterday’s luxury car buyers faced tough choices when they wanted to improve fuel economy.

Let’s start with the fact that pickup trucks occupy a very different niche than standard passenger vehicles. For most users, truck buyers need their trucks for one primary purpose –to carry and move stuff. Just picture, tradespeople, delivery companies, farmers, and you get the picture. Frankly, secondary to this mission is fuel economy, fancy styling and other non-commercial factors. However, that being said, General Motors had a hunch that there would be a market for a line of pickups trucks that had hybrid technology incorporated. After all, environmental sensitivity is quite wide spread now and most American’s express a degree of concern for the environment. So from this intuition (and probably a good deal of market research) was borne the Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid.

Saloon cars are the preferred choice of couples of any age. They provide comfort, power, and perfect travelling conditions. But there are so many models on the market that it is impossible to make a correct choice without having some information to rely on. What better way to make a decision if not by comparison?

Motors are very important from many points of view. There are various possibilities you can choose. You can choose from diesel, gasoline and hybrid motors.

It is important to see the relationship between the three and not just three separate numbers.
