Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH at the Paris Motor Show 2014: Sporty accents for the new C-Class

Stuttgart/Paris
Stuttgart/Paris. At the Paris Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz will be demonstrating, using a new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Saloon, how products from Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH can be used to individualise a vehicle. In the Mercedes-Benz Accessories Boutique will also be 100 of the limited special edition AMG GT model cars. This edition of this exclusive model car is specially designed for the Paris Motor Salon. Additional model cars from Mercedes-Benz Accessories are available as well.
With its powerful design and thoroughbred motorsport technology, the new Mercedes-AMG GT is one of the unquestionable stars of this year's Paris Motor Show. In the Mercedes-Benz Accessories Boutique, sports car enthusiasts, as well as others, will be able to purchase a meticulous, high-quality 1:18 scale model of this dynamic two-seater, which was developed by Mercedes-Benz in collaboration with Norev. The model is available in a special limited edition of 100 pieces (price: €289.00). Each miniature has an individual serial number which appears on the plate on the underbody of the vehicle.
This scale 1:18 Mercedes-AMG GT has green metallic bodywork with black elements and a carbon-optic style roof. It also features replicas of the 20-inch 10-spoke light-alloy wheels with their two-tone finish (black/green). The interior is in the same two-tone colour scheme. The model car is comprised of over 100 individual parts and has 168 details. The GT model comes in a black Mercedes-AMG designer packaging imprinted with "Limited Edition”.
Genuine Accessories for the new generation smart
The new smart fortwo and smart forfour retain their familiar design, but offer more of virtually everything – more space, more colour, more equipment and even more urban enjoyment of life. The same can be said of the products available for the new generation smart: ingenious accessories, solutions which combine functionality and emotional appeal. They include the smartphone integration with the new universal smartphone cradle which Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH will be demonstrating at the Paris Motor Show.
The universal smartphone cradle[1], combined with the free cross-connect smart app and the smart audio system, turn the smartphone into an intelligent co-driver, knowledgeable navigator and multimedia partner. The cradle can be adjusted in size, making it perfect for a wide range of different smartphones. The app starts up automatically when the smartphone is connected to the car via Bluetooth. The main menu is then displayed in easy-to-read landscape format on the smartphone's screen. The individual submenus can be accessed by tapping the screen or swiping. The cradle also offers USB charging.
smart cross connect offers a whole range of useful features during your journey and when you're outside the vehicle. Take smart parking, for example: the smart driver is not only able to save a parking facility, but can also recommend it to others, rate it and upload pictures of the parking facility. The extremely user-friendly app runs on a wide range of smartphones with iOS or Android operating systems and is offered worldwide.
In three scales: smart model cars
All the colourfulness and equipment variations of the original: from the end of November, high-quality, detailed models of the new smart generation will be available in three scales:
  • The scale 1:18 smart fortwo and smart forfour models are hand-assembled by model car specialist Norev from over 100 individual parts. The models, which measure around 15 and 19 cm in length, are produced in diecast metal and feature over 120 decorative details. Use of the original vehicle's CAD data ensures that every detail is replicated with impressive accuracy. The doors, the two-part tailgate and the engine cover below the luggage compartment can be opened. The smart fortwo models include a replica of the special model #1, available at the market launch, with body panels in authentic white and tridion-cell in lava orange. All variants feature either the proxy or passion equipment line plus the Sports package. The smart forfour models feature the prime and passion equipment lines, each with the Sports package. The colour combinations here are: black/cadmium red, black/hazel brown and lava orange/graphite grey. The 1:18 models are delivered in smart designer packaging.
  • Moving down a size, we have the new generation smart in the international "collectors' scale" of 1:43. Produced in diecast metal by Norev using the original vehicle's CAD data, the miniatures offer an impressive attention to detail and authentic paintwork colours. The high-quality printed interior is also extremely accurate. The model cars, measuring 6 and 8 cm in length, are made up of 50 individual parts, feature up to 77 decorative details, are supplied in smart designer packaging and are mounted on a printed base.
  • Space can be found in even the smallest display case for the scale 1:87 smart fortwo and smart forfour models, measuring 3 and 4 cm in length. Using the original CAD data, the high-quality miniatures are “made in Germany” from 20 individual parts produced by model car specialist Busch from Viernheim, Germany. These 1:87 model cars are finished in the authentic combination of paintwork colours of white/midnight blue, black/lava orange, cool silver/white, black/cadmium red and black/grey matt. The plastic models are supplied in smart designer packaging and are mounted on a printed base.

Genuine Accessories for the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class
The new C-Class Saloon can be configured even more individual and versatile with the genuine accessories offerings from Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH. Mercedes-Benz will be displaying a C 200 BlueTEC, fitted with a selection of these high-quality, practical products, at the Paris Motor Show. The vehicle, in iridium silver, features 48.3 cm (19-inch) 5-twin-spoke wheels from the Mercedes-Benz Sport Equipment[2] range.
  • The C-Class's dynamic looks are underlined by the Mercedes-Benz Sport Equipment front apron spoiler lip and the roof and rear spoilers in mountain grey metallic MAGNO. These add-on parts are made from dimensionally stable, precisely fitted polyurethane and do not need to be entered in the vehicle documents.
  • The illuminated Mercedes star[3], available for vehicles with a centrally positioned star emblem, provides an unusual look at night time (with the engine switched off). Fibre-optic cables and LED lights illuminate the central star on the radiator grille when the car is locked and unlocked by remote control, and when doors or the luggage compartment are opened.
  • The Mercedes-Benz Sport Equipment sports pedals are available in two versions, one for models with manual transmission and one for automatic models. Their common feature is polished stainless steel pedals with slip-resistant studded inserts.
  • The illuminated “SPORT “door sill panels from Mercedes-Benz Sport Equipment are an eye-catching feature whether in daylight or at night. The lettering, illuminated in brilliant white, is set in an elegant polished stainless steel panel.
  • If the vehicle features an Audio 20 CD, the C-Class can be retrofitted with the user-friendly Garmin® MAP PILOT navigation system. Its merits include accurate map data and excellent route guidance. The navigation software and the map data are stored on an SD card, which is simply inserted in the Audio 20 CD's dedicated SD card slot in the centre console. Garmin® MAP PILOT uses the standard colour TFT display above the centre console, featuring a high-resolution map display with the look and feel of Garmin®.
  • With the portable iPad® Docking Station for the rear compartment, the rear bench seat in the C-Class becomes both a communication centre and a cinema. The mount is simply attached to the head restraint posts and can therefore be removed again at any time. It is suitable for all 9.7-inch iPad® models from generation 2 to the iPad 4®.
  • The products from the Style & Travel Equipment series help make the rear of the C-Class even more functional. A basic support clamped between the posts of the front head restraints acts as a holder for further accessories. The support can be combined, for example, with a coat hanger. This can be removed separately – handy for transferring an item of clothing and its hanger to a hotel room. The folding table not only folds, but its height and angle can be adjusted too. It also features an integral drinks holder. Bag hooks can be used to hang up personal accessories such as handbags and other items weighing up to 1.5 kg.
  • Genuine Accessories can increase the C-Class's recreational value even further. On the show vehicle in Paris, for example, Mercedes-Benz has combined basic carrier bars with a ski and snowboard rack.
