Naturally, BRABUS will represent, skinning the GLK300 Bluetec in Widestar duds, new wheels, and the de rigeur custom interior. No power upgrade yet, it seems, but knowing BRABUS, they’ll have a version putting out approximately a trillion horsepower by the time the GLK is in customers’ hands.

PRESS RELEASE:
MERCEDES-BENZ GLK IS POISED TO IMPRESS AT SEMA 2008
Official Design Renderings Released of four Customized GLK-Class Showcars

MONTVALE, NJ – Mercedes-Benz will emphasize its “star power” at the 2008 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show with four 2010GLK-Class showcars customized by leading aftermarket tuning firms. The four Mercedes-Benz GLK SEMA concepts showcase the bold, expressive nature of the GLK luxury SUV prior to its official showroom debut in January 2009.

Design Concepts Include:

* RENNTech Rally Racer – Inspired by the unlimited-class rally cars at the storied Pikes Peak Hillclimb, the GLK concept represents the Mercedes-Benz performance specialist’s first hybrid powertrain to enhance acceleration off the line and out of the corners.
* BRABUS Widestar – Developed by Mercedes-Benz tuning experts Brabus of Bottrop, Germany, this striking wide-track “designer suit” for the GLK300 BLUETEC includes flowing front and rear wheel arch flares and redesigned front and rear bumpers complemented with exclusive BRABUS wheels and an interior to match.
* The Urban Whip – Florida-based Boulevard Customs is sure to turn heads with a wide body styling kit, massive 26-inch wheels and tires, redesigned interior and ground-pounding stereo system.
* The Four Corners Rock Crawler – Exotic and muscle car restoration specialist Legendary Motor Cars design includes an innovative winching system to propel skate and wakeboarders up to speed and actually “grind” down the vehicle’s specially integrated side rails.

The new 2010 GLK350 combines bold, aggressive design with versatile SUV capability engineered in a slightly smaller package. Powered by a 3.5-liter 268-horsepower V6 and featuring standard 4MATIC all-wheel drive, the GLK350 will make its showroom debut in January 2009.

The four GLK-Class vehicles will be displayed at this year’s SEMA show, taking place November 4-7 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. During the exhibition, attendees will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite design via online and mobile voting. Following the SEMA show, the four vehicles will be displayed at the Los Angeles Auto Show (November 21-30) providing showgoers with another opportunity to cast their vote. Beginning in early October, all four vehicles will be featured in videos on Mercedes-Benz USA website, www.mbusa.com. The votes from the show attendees and www.mbusa.com will be tallied and the winner will be announced on December 2, 2008.

    The vinyl car wrap looks like a professional business that can be relied upon, that will be there in a few years in case you need them. If you have confidence in your business, a vinyl car wrap is the best way of projecting this confidence out to your clients. Show them how professional you are and what you can do for them. Tell them you are here to stay. Nobody looks at car decals or magnets anymore. They are like bumper stickers. Nobody cares. They think the person driving the car is a small one-person shop that is trying to make money on the side. Don't be mistaken for that! Put your business up a notch by crafting your image professionally with a creative car wrap.

  • What an SUV, well armored ones are the best on security convoys.
    I saw this on an action movie.

  • There are many online websites that offer you a facility of the best
    policy quotes for free; you can select from a wide range of individual
    and group health insurance policies. Group medical insurance is quite
    cheaper than the individual health insurance plans but it covers finance
    for limited medical services. On other hand individual medical
    insurance plans are costlier than group plans and the insurance policy
    will cover up best according to your needs. If you consider yourself as a
    perfectly fit person then there is less need to stick to the individual
    medical insurance plan but if you are currently having any major health
    issue then individual insurance policy will prove beneficial for you.

     

  • Our family van is usually filled at a regular 30-40 PSI depending on road conditions and passenger weight. We've maintained that ever since we first bought it. It has been in the family for 12 years now, and I'm proud that Camilla (that's what we named it) is still sturdy and trustworthy.

  • The trend of Baby SAVs or Crossover is ever increasing popular. VW's tiguan seems to be a hit in the market so as their Brother company Audi's Q5, and the new Q3 which never fails to impress
