Mercedes-Benz models saw a 5.8% gain in sales volume at 23,635 bringing year-to-date totals for the brand to 92,822. Combined with monthly sales from smart (667) and Sprinter Vans (1,855) MBUSA saw a year-to-date total of 101,371, a 10.2% increase over the the first four months of 2012.

"We've entered the second quarter of 2013 at an incredible pace," said Steve Cannon, president and CEO of MBUSA. "A record first quarter gave us a great start. With our completely redesigned E-Class now in showrooms, I fully expect to see continued momentum in the months ahead."

Despite the imminent mass-market arrival of a cheaper sedan, Mercedes' current entry model, the C-Class continued to perform very well, with sales of 7,338, up 14.2%. The other two top selling models were the refreshed E-Class and the L-Class SUV.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
