The Center of Excellence was impressive. Any kind of branded Mercedes-Benz item you might ever want was there inuclding little toy cars and bicycles.

Our cars were all set up and ready for us to drive away, but first we had a factory tour. No photos were allowed on the tour. It was an imeprssive sight to see th eextent to which automation was used to build the cars. One of the most impsresive things we saw was a robot picking up and intsalling the dashboard, and attaching it. Impressive.

After the tour, we signed some paperwork and then got our in our cars to drive back to the hotel. In a nice touch, all our European road trip destinations were programmed into the navigation system. Off we went.

Disclosure: Mercedes-Benz of Burlington provided me with a 2017 Mercedes-Benz S550 Cabriolet, hotel accommodations, selected meals, and tours, to experience the Mercedes-Benz European Delivery Program. The car came with a full tank of gas and insurance coverage. I was not asked to write anything about the car in exchange for the opportunity and was not provided any other compensation of any kind. All opinions I express regarding the Mercedes-Benz European Delivery Program are my own.
