Compliments - New Mercedes TV spot with Nico Rosberg, Michael Schumacher and Mika Häkkinen
Mercedes-Benz is kicking off the 2011 Formula 1 season with a new Silver Arrow and also with a new TV spot. Based around the motto "Racing is a state of mind", the short film entitled "Compliments" depicts the passion of Mercedes-Benz for motorsport and competition. With a touch of humour and self-deprecation, Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher play on their internal rivalry within MERCEDES GP PETRONAS team. Former world champion Mika Häkkinen -- an iconic figure who has appeared numerous times in humorous Mercedes-Benz TV spots over the past 15 years -- highlights, with the aid of an energy drink, on which team the rivalry should be focused at the start of the season.
"The new Formula 1 season gets under way on Sunday with the race in Melbourne, and the deck has been shuffled again," explained Anders Sundt Jensen, Vice President Brand Communication Mercedes-Benz Cars. "The spot makes it clear, in a rather fun way, that motorsport is a way of life for our brand. In addition, it shows that we don't admit defeat if at first we don't achieve the goals we have set ourselves, but rather that we take up the challenge -- both within our team, as well as united against our competitors."
The 45-second spot, created by Jung von Matt, will be shown by all major German broadcasters from tonight until Sunday to mark the start of the Formula 1 season.
Mercedes C63 AMG coupe revealed
Mercedes-Benz has revealed the 2012 C63 AMG Coupe ahead of its public debut
at the New York Auto Show next month - finally a true competitor to the BMW
Just like the C63 AMG sedan and wagon variants, power output stays the same
via a 6.3-liter (6208cc) V8 engine with 451 hp (336 kW / 457 PS) and 443
lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. Connected through a seven-speed SpeedShift MCT
transmission, the coupe dashes from 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds, also the
same as the C63 sedan. Top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155
mph) while fuel consumption using the combined NEDC figures remains a
thirsty 12.0 L/100km. The optional AMG Performance Package increases output
to 480 hp (358 kW / 487 PS) and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. The
additional 30 horsepower enables the coupe
to sprint from 0-100 km/h one-tenth of a second faster to 4.4 seconds.
When the C63 AMG Coupe launchs in Europe this July, an exclusive "Edition
1" will also be available with exclusive equipment. The Edition 1 features
AMG sports seats, door panel centers and armrests upholstered in black
designo leather with contrasting porcelain seams on the sports seats. Also,
other trim pieces have a porcelain piano-lacquer look. The AMG performance
steering wheel has been given a two-tone wrap using black nappa leather
with the lower section in porcelain designo leather. Naturally, "Edition 1"
badges are seen throughout. On the outside, AMG 5-twin-spoke light-alloy
wheels painted in matt black give a unique look. As an option, the standard
metallic paintwork can be swapped for a matt finish in designo magno night
black or diamond white metallic BRIGHT.
Prices including 19 percent VAT in Germany for the C63 AMG coupe is
€72,590 while the C63 AMG Coupe Edition 1 is €77,231. The optional AMG
Performance package is €7116.20.
