In one day there were two very good events in Brno and I couldn’t miss them!

In the morning I visited Mercedes “doors open”. Anyone could drive almost every car which Mercedes offers. I chose the Mercedes A25 Brabus and the new Mercedes C-klasse. I also was a copilot in Mercedes ML at aquarry near Brno, but this experience was boring…

Mercedes A25 Brabus

245 horses may seem to be enough, but I can tell you that it is not. The power is let say blunt. Ok, you have a fast car, but you don’t have anything special. And the price of this car is the last straw. 52 000€. Yes, you read properly.  52 000 euros for a small car with some wings, rails and big wheels. There is noise coming from the exhaust. Not from the engine (It is 4 cylinder engine with turbo).  I really don’t know which man will buy this car. For me it is very hard to find anything good in this car. Yes, the design is beautiful and maybe 7 speed transmission with two clutches also works well. And that is it. No more positives from my side. Sorry Mr. Brabus…

I figured it out. This car should be called Mercedes A25 Chihuahua, because this Brabus is also beautiful and fashionable like the dog, but the Chihuahua is not the right dog owned by the right men…

Mercedes C-klasse 220 CDI

Next car which I drove was the new Mercedes C-klasse with a four-cylinder diesel engine. Also a totally boring car. Airmatic was good, but Friends Citroen C5 hydroactive has similar properties for half the price. A good feature is the “traffic watcher in blind spot”. If any car is in the blind spot on the minors you will see red light. Yes, but Volvo had this feature ten years ago.

Hošek Motor also had the new Mercedes S-klasse there, but the sales man told me that this car is just for exposition not for driving. I was so looking forward to a drive with this car. I read and saw a lot of great reviews about this car, but I have to wait for another opportunity…

Evalution is: If you are petrolhead get away from the A25 Brabus and standard C-klasse Mercedes and go for AMG! Because if I can compare this action with previous AMG action, AMG was much much better.

In the afternoon I visited a nice expository Classic show Brno 2014

Two interesting stories which I got there:

1)            If you are talented and you can paint you can make 5 000€ per month. Good for Czech markets, isn’t it?

2)            If you are talented and you can take pictures you can have 750 000€ for one photo. Good for Czech markets, isn’t it?

And because pictures are more than a hundred words. Here you are:
