My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

AUTOCAR AWARDS - Mercedes UK CEO Gary Savage is named as one of the UK's Outstanding Automotive Leaders.
Mercedes-Benz UK CEO Gary Savage has been named as one of the UK’s Oustanding Automotive Leaders in the Autocar Awards, which celebrate the best of the motor industry.
The accolade was presented at a ceremony at Silverstone last night. Presenting the award, Autocar news editor, Rachel Burgess, said: “The UK new car market is booming.
It’s high-achieving people who create such progress, and these awards recognise those who have caught our eye — not just for impressive sales but also for the way they go about their business.
“Gary Savage is an innovator with a track record for energising whatever company he leads. For several years he’s headed what is now the UK’s fastest-growing premium brand, and the way he’s encouraged both his team and his dealers to following his vision is remarkable.”
Accepting the award, Gary Savage commented: “I’m delighted with the recognition, but in reality this award reflects the hard work that goes in to Mercedes-Benz from across the business. It’s this dedication that has enabled us virtually to double sales in five years. I’d like to thank the amazing and passionate team working for Mercedes-Benz across the UK, especially our retailers, who are the most professional in the industry.”
In 2015, Mercedes-Benz Cars UK achieved yet another record year, with sales growth of 17%. This year is already on track to be even more successful, with a record quarter one and sales up 20% year to date.
