Featured Vehicle: Used Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG G-Class

Featured Vehicle of the day:  A beautiful used Mercedes-Benz G-class SUV.  This one is a 2009 Mercedes G55 AMG.  Black on charcoal, rugged with an uncommon style.  This one really stands out from the pack of less distinctive but popular sports utility vehicles (or, as some say, “Soccer Utility Vehicles‘). It’s boxy yet luxurious, has less than 7,000 miles, is loaded with features and shines like a black pearl. See for yourself here in this video slide show:

Newcomers- 2009 BMW 750Li

I can’t even describe what a big improvement this car is from its predecessor. It features the latest generation of BMW’s notoriously bad iDirve, as well as an ergonomically correct shifter, and seat functions. The latest generation seven series also looks much better on the inside than the previous one. The overall feel, and design of the cockpit is just outstanding, and the ambient light at night is unlike any other.

The new 4.4L V8 twin turbocharged engine is a screamer, putting out over 400HP and 450 pound-feet of torque. A six speed automatic transmission with paddle shifting mode, delivers the power to the rear wheels. There are four settings you can choose to adjust the response and speed of the transmission, as well as the shock absorber firmness, and the throttle response which are all a part of BMW’s Driving Dynamic system. I personally love the new motor being that it moves the new 7 Series almost effortlessly. It is by far the best turbocharged motor I’ve ever driven.

The exterior styling is also much nicer than its predecessor. The lines are more smooth, and flow much better towards the rear of the car. The interior is very simple to use, and is almost better than that of the Panamera. The iDrive is a definite step up from its outgoing brother, however there are still improvements to be made. I love the new larger screen, and the way things are ordered in a list form- rather than bumping the knob to the left or right to choose which feature you would like to use. Radio preset buttons are also a huge welcome, as well as the climate system with its own display.

2009 Maserati Quattroporte Executive GT

The Maserati Quattroporte Executive GT is a real special car. Maserati has been known in the past for making some of the most unreliable cars on the road- which has tarnished the British automakers badge for decades. Though, during the past 20 years, they have seemed to get their act back together, and the Quattroporte is a perfect example of this. The design is staggering, and combined with the racing heritage of Maserati, it is one heck of a car- beating out all of the superfast luxury sedans.

Quattroporte Exterior

The interior of the car is breathtaking. All of the woods and leathers found in the cabin are worked on and assembled by hand. The front seats heat, cool, message, and even feature a dynamic mode. The steering wheel is one of the most comfortable I’ve ever used, and the paddle shifters are properly mounted on the steering column- rather than the wheel. Each passenger in the car can control their own temperature, where they would like the air to be distributed, and the speed of the fan.

All seats are made of some of the finest leather available, and have an adjustable lumbar support system. The rear seats also have wooden picnic tables. The Navigation system which is manufactured by Bose and is only available on Maserattis and Ferraris is a breeze to use. The maps are super clear, and it has a digital jukebox to store all of your favorite CDs. The 4.7L V8 engine produces over 425 horsepower, and the sound it produces is nothing short of spectacular- which is what I expected from a motor designed and built by Ferrari.
