Free Smart Fortwos in KC.

With the purchase of a MB SLS AMG

Quote:



The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT is an exquisite sports car that probably needs no help flying off dealer lots, even with a starting price of almost $200,000, but Mercedes-Benz of Kansas City has come up with an interesting incentive to sweeten the deal. For buyers who purchase a new SLS AMG from dealer stock before the end of the year, the dealership is throwing in a new Smart Fortwo from its inventory at no charge... with a required coupon no less.

In addition to being a great tactic to get a little free press, the spare car also makes sense as an alternative to the SLS, which measures more than 15-feet long - almost twice the length of a Fortwo - and has a 563-horsepower engine that sucks down gas at the rate of 13 miles per gallon in city driving (and even that's provided you don't give in to the devil on your shoulder). Plus, at the end of the day, this really isn't that big of an incentive. Being given a slow-selling $12,490 car for the purchase of a model starting at $199,500 represents about a six percent incentive, which is along the lines of a $1,900 rebate for a $30,000 car.

To get the free Smart, just visit the Mercedes-Benz of Kansas City Facebook page, redeem the coupon and then go buy yourself a new SLS AMG. Congratulations!

Slow selling $12,490 car...? So far this year M-B has sold 762 of the AMG, while smart sales stand at 9,013 YTD. Which one is the slow seller?

The SLS is hideous, I can't understand why people would want one. Hated it since I saw the first one in Frankfurt in 2009! So did most of the auto show observers around me on the AMG stand. The newer convertible is _slightly_ better looking. Silly car, silly money.

The front is sort of OK, but the roof and the back are terrible!

I bet Aristocrat Motors, has more MB SLS AMG, then smart cars. Could be equal. I past there ever morning, and evening. Just a couple sitting on the show room floor. I don't know about the other dealer south of me, they own too.

The MB SLS AMG is a pretty cool looking car.

My local MB/Smart Center has had an SLS AMG sitting since I bought my smart in March. Such a beautiful car. I feel nervous looking at it, let alone touching it being a car that costs more than a decent house in my area.
