Mercedes-Benz plant Bremen: Bremen plant to produce additional model of the
C Class model range as of 2011
• Development as a competence centre: Bremen plant expanding production
operations to include Coupé of the C-Class
• New variant to be produced in addition to the C-Class Saloon, the
C-Class Estate and the GLK as of 2011
• Flexible production: Coupé to be produced with three existing models
on a single line
Peter Schabert, Head of the Bremen plant: "Decision another milestone on
our way to becoming the C-Class competence centre and a clear sign of trust
in Bremen team's capabilities and standards."
Bremen - The Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen is gearing up for the production
of a fourth model of the high-volume C-Class model range. As of 2011, a
Coupé will be added to a flexible production line, which already produces
the three existing models. This will be a new addition to Bremen's current
production portfolio in the C-Class segment, comprising the Saloon, the
Estate and the compact GLK sport utility vehicle (SUV).
"The decision by the Board of Management to produce the Coupé version of
the current C-Class here in Bremen as well represents another important
milestone on our way to becoming Mercedes' competence centre for the
C-Class and is a clear sign of the trust in the Bremen team's capabilities
and standards," says Peter Schabert, Head of the Mercedes-Benz plant in
The Bremen plant is developed into the worldwide competence centre for the
high-volume C-Class model series. Allocating production of the new Coupé
to the plant is in keeping with this strategy. As announced in December
2009, the launch of the next generation of the C-Class at the plant as of
2014 will see production of the C-Class Saloon for markets in Europe
concentrated at a single location together with the production of the other
C-Class model variants.
The Bremen plant is already demonstrating the flexibility of its production
operations by producing three models (C-Class Saloon, C-Class Estate and
GLK) on a single assembly line. The vehicles are able to pass along the
assembly line in any conceivable order precisely as customer orders
require, irrespective of model, variant (right- or left-hand drive,
all-wheel or rear-wheel drive) and equipment. From 2011 the Bremen plant
will be integrating a fourth model into the production process in the guise
of the Coupé, demonstrating the plant's flexibility once again.

In addition to the models of the C-Class model series, vehicles belonging
to the E-Class are also produced in Bremen, with the Coupé and Cabrio
running in flexible configuration on a single production line. The
roadsters of the SL- and SLK-Class are also produced exclusively in Bremen.
With a workforce of around 12,600, the Mercedes-Benz plant is the largest
private-sector employer in the region.
2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK350 Review - More than the sum of its upgrades
In the past we might have compared the SLK to that cute girl next door, or
perhaps even a confident woman in a short suit skirt and naughty secretary
So weren't we shocked when Mercedes unveiled the all-new 2012 SLK. To carry
on the metaphor, the internal monolog most certainly sounded like this:
"Whoa... it's a dude."

2012 Mercedes Benz SLK350 Roadster Ash Interior and Metallic Storm Red Exterior
http://www.eurocarnews.com - Merecedes Benz USA - The timeless, classic
shape of the side profile with the classic roadster proportions embodies
aesthetics of the highest caliber and is a visual cue to the sportiness and
driving pleasure in store. Fine details show the care that has been taken
by the Mercedes-Benz designers. For example, a molding conceals the trunk
joint, so that the side line cannot get in the way, as it usually does with
similar roof designs. The ventilation grilles in the front fenders with a
chromed fin are reminiscent of the famous Mercedes-Benz roadsters of the
1950s. In the new SLK they form the perfect starting point for a feature
line, which flows to the muscular rear fender, using light and shadow to
add style and timeless aesthetics to the sides. Meanwhile the upper edge of
the wide headlamps -- which for the first time boast all-LED technology --
also appears to flow into the feature line.
Despite the most compact dimensions in its class, the 2012 SLK has generous
interior dimensions. To achieve this, the designers have developed interior
appointments that offer the driver and passenger the highest degree of
quality and pure precision. The interior is characterized by stylish
sportiness and genuine high-quality materials which have been processed
with perfect precision and skilled craftsmanship. Standard brushed aluminum
trim covers the center console; wood trim can be ordered as an option in
high-gloss dark brown walnut. Four round, metallic air outlets integrated
in the dashboard emphasize that this model truly belongs to the
Mercedes-Benz sports car family, their shape being a nod to those in the
