* Approximately 8,000 new passenger cars on the Internet * New vehicles delivered to customers within a week DaimlerChrysler has become the first auto maker in Germany to sell new cars over the Internet. Online customers can take their pick from a total of more than 8,000 passenger cars from the full Mercedes-Benz range -- including the new C-Class, the SLK roadster, the M- Class and S-Class, and the exclusive CL coupe. Several selection criteria such as model, color, equipment, and price help customers choose their vehicles quickly and easily. Once the model has been selected, a Mercedes- Benz sales partner contacts the customer within 24 hours and arranges for delivery within at most one week. The Internet site can be found at
