Learn about BLUETEC® Mercedes-Benz Innovative Diesel Technology
At the January 2008 Mercedes-Benz Dinner Meeting, which will be held on January 17th at the Phoenix Club in Anaheim, 18405 Sanderson Ave, we will be honored to have two speakers. They will be talking about the new Mercedes-Benz BLUETEC® Diesel. First is Captain Ed Burns, USMC, who ordered his car and took special delivery in Scottsdale, Arizona May 2007. The second speaker will be Gerhard Schnuerer who owns a E320 BLUETEC Special, one of two built for the Paris to Beijing rally. Gerhard drove his car on the 1st leg of the rally from Paris to St. Petersburg. The car is equipped with all the special navigation and tracking systems.
BLUETEC is a new diesel technology patented by Mercedes-Benz and received the Green Car Award for the cleanest diesel in the world. BLUETEC Diesels are now selling in 45 of the 50 States, but not yet in California. However, one may be leased from your local Mercedes-Benz dealer for 24 months or 24,000 miles. Mercedes must take the cars back after the 2-year period toremain in compliance with California laws. Local Mercedes-Benz dealers will begin selling the car starting this next model year according to information we’ve received.
This should be a very interesting presentation as little is known about the new BLUETEC Diesel models. So please, send in your checks for reservations payable to MBCA-Orange County Section for $30.00 per person.
Seating is limited to about 40 people. Mail your check to Rosemarie Moller, 18352 Rainier Drive, Santa Ana, CA 92705 (714) 832-0181.
