Just a quick post to share some news from Mercedes-Benz. Now driving with a top F1 team has its perks such as freebies, and we’re not talking caps and stickers. Every driver of the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team must be seen publicly driving a Mercedes-Benz; not exactly a bad bit of small print and Jenson Button has taken advantage of this.
The 2009 world champion collected his new Mercedes C-Class DR 520 Estate from Mercedes-Benz World in Brooklands. The car is a limited edition E63 AMG with an extra 60BHP that helps the car complete a 0-62MPH time of 4.2 seconds and achieve an electronically limited top speed of 186MPH. With matt black paint and some bespoke interior finishing’s this £63,680 monster is all his free of charge.
We approve Mr Button, we approve.
