Hip Berlin and Hot GLC 43 with Chris

Berlin calling. So It was time to go and explore our capital city Berlin during the day & night for a long weekend (29.-31st October). For this adventure through the traffic jungle of Berlin, I picked up a very special brand new car from Mercedes-Benz Berlin at the Salzufer…


Hi Mercedes-AMG GLC 43!

Let’s go and explore hip & crazy Berlin together! My buddy fits very good to the city, a black and white stunner with big 21″ rims. With 550-liter luggage capacity there is a lot of space for shopping or any kind of hobby.

Enjoy my photostory!

The car is a stunner all the way! Firstly with the big contrast color look in black & white. I’m a big fan of it! Compared with the big 21″ rims it looks very mighty! Secondly, the interior design with black leather/red stitching and aluminum/carbon-fibre trim elements together with the AMG Performance steering wheel is an impressive statement – Hip, cool and modern luxurious!

Then it comes to the performance….just impressive! I love the V6 BiTurbo engine! In Comfort Mode [C], the engine is unobtrusive, although you hear the V6 so that you get to know, there is a lot of power! In Sport Mode [S], the car is more aggressive! In Sport Plus [S+] you are driving a beast! The car is very noisy and really fast!

Fuel consumption

It was a brand new car with only 21 kilometers on the clock. So the fuel consumption was not that good. But that’s normal. You have to drive lots of kilometers at the beginning to get the engine working perfectly, so the fuel consumption will go down.

During my adventure through Berlin, I had a total fuel consumption of 18.5 L/100Km after nearly 200 Km. That’s a lot I know. But I was only driving in the city with stop and go traffic.


On Sunday my teammate, Simon joined me and we started the shooting day. The weather was perfect. A wonderful sunny autumn day in Berlin. We were driving the whole day through the city with lots of stops at different shooting locations.





 

 

 


In the evening when it was getting dark, my cousin and a friend of mine joined and we drove to a special, very hip and good burger restaurant.

Super delicious burger with high-quality beef 😉

 

After the dinner, we were strong enough to start our night shooting.

 



On Sunday I drove with my buddy Tobias totally relaxed through the city.

… Stop at the famous Adlon Hotel at the Brandenburger Tor.

 

…stop at the Memorial to the murdered Jew of Europe. I took a photo there because it belongs to the City and its history! So the GLC had to see it as well.

Conclusion:

I love the GLC in general! It’s a great car for everyday usage! It’s not too big and it’s very comfortable! The Topmodel GLC 43 is a beastly thing! You are able to drive it very fast but also comfortable. But to be honest for the City I think the GLC 250d would be the perfect car! Anyway, it is a great car! I really loved it! It’s one of my favorite ones!
