Buying a new luxury car is always a great experience. The journey does not begin at the moment you configurate your car, but starts at the moment you receive the car keys of your new vehicle. But before you are able to receive your car keys, you certainly need to collect the car from the factory. In the following blog, you will find out, where you can pick up your new luxury car!

Audi

This luxury car brand was established officially in 1910 in Zwickau, Saxony. However, the company’s beginnings can be traced back to the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century.

Audi AG, as we know it today, resulted from the merger of four Saxony based car manufacturers in 1932. Consequently, the company’s logo, the four interlocking rings, symbolize the union of the four brands Audi, DKWK, Horch and Wanderer. Since the company’s establishment, Audi grew to be one of the best-selling luxury automobile brands in the world, among Mercedes-Benz and BMW.

In case you have ordered a higher end Audi of the lines A4, A5, A7, A8 or R8, you will be able to pick up your brand-new car at the Audi Forum Neckarsulm. The city is located in the north of Baden-Württemberg and is easily accessible from the Stuttgart Airport.

On the day of the delivery of your new Audi vehicle, it is possible to book a factory group tour and experience the birth of an Audi. In case you want to have a more exclusive tour of the plant and decide your own agenda, Audi offers its customers to book an exclusive factory tour, upon request. Further activities whilst picking up your brand-new car at Neckarsulm, involve a small visit of the historical exhibition of Audi vehicles at the Audi-Forum and having a meal at the Nuvolari restaurant. One also has the opportunity to visit the Audi Shop. Further information about new car delivery of Audi in Neckarsulm, can be found here.

Mercedes Benz

Mercedes-Benz is not only making luxurious vehicles, but also trucks, coaches and buses. This car brand was established in 1926, but Mercedes Benz cars is considered to be the manufacturer who produced the first automobile that went into production.

Many people might believe that the Mercedes-Benz logo is a simple three-pointed star. However, the logo has a deeper meaning. According to the company, the three pronged star is the company’s ambition of universal motorization “on land, on water and in the air”. Therefore, each prong of the star portrays one element.  

If you ordered a new Mercedes Benz passenger car of the class E, CLS, S, AMG GT or GLA, the final assembly takes place in Sindelfingen. The Mercedes-Benz Plant Sindelfingen is one of the biggest plants of the German car manufacturer Daimler AG. It is located approximately 20 driving minutes away from Stuttgart Airport. Furthermore, the plant is well connected to public transportation. In case you decide to take the subways from Stuttgart Airport, make sure to get off at Böblingen. From there on, you can take the Free shuttle bus to the Mercedes-Benz Customer Centre in Sindelfingen.

A particularity of the Mercedes-Benz-Plant Sindelfingen is, that one has the possibility to have a peak into the production of a Mercedes-Benz passenger car. Guided tours inside the plant are taking place on a daily basis. If you are picking up your vehicle in Sindelfingen, do not miss the chance to join the guided tour. Normally, visitors willing to join a guided tour need a registration. However, if you want to participate in the tour on the day you are collecting your vehicle, you are able to join the guided tour without prior registration.

Porsche

The automobile manufacturer Porsche, which is known for its high performance, sports cars, sedans and SUVs, was established in 1931 in Stuttgart by Ferdinand Porsche. Until today, the main factory and the company’s headquarter are located in a district of Stuttgart called Zuffenhausen. However, models like the Porsche Cayenne and Panamera are assembled in Leipzig, Saxony.

One aspect that makes Porsche vehicles even more special, is the iconic logo of the company. Porsches logo is a combination of the former coat of arms of the Kingdom of Württemberg and the coat of arms of Stuttgart. Both mirror the origin of the company.

Although, not every model of Porsche is assembled in the main plant in Zuffenhausen, Porsche allows you to collect every model in Zuffenhausen or in Leipzig, if desired. The main plant in Zuffenhausen is approximately 20 driving minutes away from the Airport Stuttgart, therefore easily accessible. If you are planning to collect your Porsche in Zuffenhausen, you will not only be able to pick up your luxury vehicle, but also to fully experience Porsche.

As a customer of a Porsche, you are offered to join a guided tour in the factory of Porsche, in which you will experience how a Porsche is built. Furthermore, on the day of the pickup of your luxury car, Porsche invites you to a three-course meal at their VIP Restaurant. Additionally, whilst collecting your car, do not miss on a visit to the Porsche Museum and its exhibition of historic and current cars. More information on the factory collection in Zuffenhausen can be found here.

Air taxis and luxury cars

Traveling to the pick up location of your brand-new luxury car, can be very exhausting. Especially, if you will collect your brand new car at the factory. Driving to the location with your current car is definitely not an option, as you will need someone to drive your other car back home.

Furthermore, traveling by train might be time consuming, particularly if the journey is long. For this reason, the easiest and fastest solution is to fly. As a result, combining an air taxi with the collection of a luxury car, is a great idea!

With a Cirrus SR22 air taxi of Fly Aeolus, you can travel efficiently to the pick up location, whilst experiencing a luxurious cabin, that resembles the interior of a luxury sedan. This is the reason, why the Cirrus SR22 is also known as the luxury sedan for the air! With Fly Aeolus you are able to arrive at the airport only 15 Minutes before the flight and avoid long check-in queues. By using small and large airports in Europe, you will be able to land as close as possible to your final destination and pick up your luxury car. 

IAA Frankfurt

If you are a car enthusiast, who is not sure which luxury car to get next, consider visiting the IAA (German for: Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung) exhibition in Frankfurt. This international Motor Show is the largest and most important motor show of the world. Automobile manufacturers like Audi, Mercedes and Porsche unveil their upcoming production cars, during this event.
