BMW vs Mercedes AMG CLK-GTR

:lol: The most dear(expensive) automobile in the world - brought in the Book of records Гиннесса and let out(released) in five copies Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK-GTR - has delivered all to the owners so much problems, that they have been compelled to bring an action on DaimlerChrysler. The machine bought for 1,7 million of dollars, could pass only 10 quarters then began to collapse. Repair the of superpenalties representatives DaimlerChrysler could not.
When the owner of the American company Grand Prix Motors trading in expensive(dear) exclusive automobiles, Mark Johnson in 2004 has got Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK-GTR for 1,7 million dollars, it(he) could not assume at all, how many problems this supermachine will deliver to it(him).

" In itself the automobile is simply magnificent, and we thought, it(he) becomes the main pearl in our ruler of machines " Excellent(Different) PR - campaign of the automobile, his(its) entering in Book Гиннесса as most dear(expensive) serial machine, and the fact of that it авто is the only thing in the USA (such machines it has been let out(it has been released) five pieces), promised not only fast sale of it Mercedes-Benz, but also solid profit - the price for him(it) have established in 2,5 million dollars.

However on the first the test - драйве with the potential buyer the superautomobile could pass only 10 quarters then at him(it) the bulb of the gauge of oil has lit up. The machine from углепластика, 6,9-liter which 12-cylinder cursor accelerates momentum till 320 km / hour (and up to 200 km she(it) is dispersed all for 9,9 seconds), it was necessary to push manually up to garage literally.

Already on a place it was found out, that the problem with pressure of oil in the engine at the machine not unique - has departed not only transmission, but even hydraulic стеклоподъемники. In service - center DaimlerChrysler it was offered to Mark Johnson to deliver the machine in center Mercedes in Florida that has costed for the owner 10 thousand dollars.

However the expert specially sent from Germany, and could not understand, in what business. As it is told in the press release of company Grand Prix Motors, the master only could ascertain, that the machine requires replacement of the engine. But such repair in the service - center to do(make) have refused.

After almost two-year-old dispute with DaimlerChrysler Mark Johnson has decided to achieve the truth in court. As the respondent under his(its) claim acts not only concern, but also representation Mercedes-Benz in the USA, and also studio Mercedes-AMG GmbH which participates in release of rare machines of German concern.

" In itself the automobile is simply magnificent, and we thought, it(he) becomes the main pearl in our ruler of machines ", - Mark Johnson speaks. But, unfortunately, " this Mercedes appeared exotic absolutely in the other sense ", it(he) adds. In the claim the American dealer demands from a motor-car manufacturer not only to return to it(him) full cost of the machine, but also to compensate all other expenses connected to attempt to restore of superpenalties, - all almost 2,3 million dollars.

On this theme
Ford has remained without privileges
Peugeot has risen in turn
Nissan it was defined(determined)
The market of foreign cars
Honda builds factories
Automobiles become shallow
" We are simply stunned with unwillingness DaimlerChrysler to recognize existing defects in their automobile. It is the first similar case in our practice, and in fact we trade in expensive(dear) automobiles since 1983. it is very annoying, that business all the same has reached court, but in fact it is necessary to understand and us - we the automobile which is scrap metal " cannot sell for more than 2 million dollars, - Johnson complains.
Representative Mercedes-Benz in the USA Donna Bolad on air of broadcasting company CNN has refused to make comments on forthcoming proceeding as the disputable machine has been bought directly in Germany, instead of through the American representation of concern. German representatives of concern also have refused to explain existing claims to their exclusive machine.
