Mercedes-Benz congratulates global brand ambassador Roger Federer on his 40th birthday and wishes continued success, happiness, and health - on and off the tennis court.
Happy 40th birthday Roger Federer from Mercedes-Benz
The Swiss professional tennis player turns 40 on the 08th of August 2021. Roger Federer has definitely set the standard in men’s tennis. He is widely regarded as the best and most successful tennis player of all time; he holds 20 men's singles grand slam titles, winning his first at Wimbledon in 2003 at the age of 21, and currently sits at no.5 in the ATP tour ranking.
Federer became Mercedes-Benz’s brand ambassador in 2008. His contract has since been extended to 2027 and for the next six years, Mercedes-Benz is committed to give Federer a brand-new car every six months!
Mercedes-Benz compliments Roger Feder’s style and elegance perfectly
Regardless of his outstanding successes, Roger Federer is a true gentleman and has always remained humble. His great personality exceeds the sport and has represented Mercedes-Benz globally in an exceptional way from the very start of the collaboration.
"Roger Federer is an outstanding athlete who has shaped tennis for decades and stands for top performance. As a successful top athlete, he ideally represents our brand as we are united by the demand for perfection and the will to succeed" says Dr Jens Thiemer, Vice President Marketing Mercedes-Benz Cars.
Along with his notable trophy collection, Federer's car collection cannot be overlooked. He has developed one of the most aesthetically pleasing garages in the celebrity car world. Known for being respectful and elegant, Roger's car choices have always been extremely classy.
Which Mercedes-Benz cars is Roger Federer driving
Federer owns some of the finest gems from the stable of Mercedes-Benz. Here are three of the Mercedes-Benz models he has been spotted driving:
Mercedes AMG GLE 63 S
Roger is not only a tennis legend but also a father to a double set of twins, hence a car with ample space is a necessity. The new GLE is more powerful, efficient and suitable for day-to-day use than ever before. It meets the highest expectations in terms of design and exclusivity as well as excellent driving dynamics and agility.
Mercedes SL AMG
With a doubt, a convertible had to be part of the collection, and this was Roger’s choice. The new version of the high-performance Roadster impresses on multiple counts: systematic lightweight construction, a boost in output and driving dynamics, and 30 percent lower fuel consumption and emissions.
Mercedes CLS 450
Roger was given a CLS after he won the Mercedes Cup in 2018. The new CLS pioneers the new design idiom of Mercedes-Benz, which is recognisable by its clear contours and reduced lines. The Coupé is a highly emotive vehicle offering impressive long-distance and acoustic comfort coupled with compelling modernization.
Federer enjoys the latest Mercedes-Benz models
Federer has also been seen promoting Mercedes-Benz’s latest luxury offering – EQ Power; Mercedes’ plug-in hybrid vehicles. Plug-in hybrids bring together the best of two worlds: they run in all-electric mode, whilst benefiting from the range of the combustion engine. They make the vehicle more efficient overall, because they can firstly recover energy during braking and secondly allow the combustion engine to run in favourable operating ranges.
Earlier this year, Mercedes-Benz released a short teaser video promoting the S-Class with Roger Federer.
