Follow-up: The Mercedes-Benz AMG C43 Super Bowl Giveaway 

Last Fan Standing Mercedes Super Bowl Giveaway Mercedes-Benz AMG C43

We gave you a story last week about a pretty cool contest Mercedes was going to do during the Super Bowl last Sunday.  Called Last Man Standing, it turned out to be a huge flop for the luxury brand.

The idea was to for people to hold their fingers on an image of the Mercedes-AMG C43 on their cell phone, and whoever was the last one who didn’t drop out would win the car.  Sounded like a great idea, and apparently many people agreed.  So many people tried to play the game crashed.            

In a statement on their Facebook page after Philadelphia defeated the New England Patriots: 

“The good news is, the Mercedes-AMG C43 is still in play,” the automaker said on its Facebook page late Sunday night. “The bad news is, when you try to achieve a technological first, things can sometimes go wrong. In this case, there were just too many of you.”

All is not lost for players, however.  Mercedes-Benz ended up giving away the $57,000 car this week in a random drawing that included everyone who had registerd to play.  According to its website and Facebook,  the car is headed to Joshua D in New Hampshire.

Might be a good idea to do a little more testing next time Mercedes.

    Really pleased that I found the Car Pro website – very informative! I have a request that you may be able to assist: I own an impeccable 1986 Suzuki Samurai, with 62,000 miles (one of the best engineered cars I’ve ever owned), and I’ve had many, mostly sports and classic vehicles. It’s almost impossible to find an honest and competent repair repair facility for this vehicle (or for most cars) in West Los Angeles, and that’s why I’m considering a sale. I’m attempting to find out what it’s worth as there is a Suzuki collector in Arizona who is very interested. Hopefully, you may have some internet leads for me to research. Thank you!

      I wish I could be of service. I truly wish I could assist, but Suzuki hasn’t operated in the U.S. in many years, so I just don’t keep up with them. Good luck selling it, if I can help with a replacement, let me know!
