The International Motor Show (IAA) is the world´s biggest car show. Held anually in Frankfurt it is a behemoth collection of the world’s finest cars. So armed with pockets full of Euro’s we hit the autobahn and made our way to this essential motor show.
Mercedes-Benz S Class 2006
The main reason for our visit was to see the 2006 Mercedes-Benz S Class car. The Mercedes-Benz S Class is the industry standard luxury chauffeur limousine. The new S Class will be available in 2006 and we have some on order, so it was important for us to check out the new flag ship for the Mercedes fleet.
We were not disapointed, the new S Class has some great new features which will help make our clients travel a little bit more comfortable. We like the look of the new S Class too, which is an important part of a luxury chauffeur driven vehicle. Our first impressions are very positive and we are sure that once more the S Class will be our clients and chauffeurs favourite vehicle.
Bentley make some wonderful chauffeur driven vehicles. What is always apparent is Bentley’s sporting heritage. In Ian Flemings 007 books. Bond had a Bentley – and well if it’s good enough for Bond… We didn’t think that this new Bentley would be 007′s first choice – the chromed wheels may be a little too bling for his tastes. Yet the curved lines harp back to a much more glamourous era and with the right wheels this beauty could take pride of place outside the Casino Royale
Another Bond marque is the Aston Martin. Again this particular model may be a little too bold for 007′s day job, but it looks aggressive even on a shag-pile carpet. This Aston will take no prisoners although you may have to pay a little more for ejector seats, machine guns and rockets.
More than just pretty cars
So as we make our way back to blighty, we couldn’t leave the show without the obligatory model picture and with this we’ll look forward to the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show. Hopefully, we’ll see you there!
