Say ‘Hello’ to our old friends, Berlin!

You might have noticed: We love cars! Especially great cars. The S-Classes, A8, BMW 7 Series’ and VW Phaetons currently on the Uber system in Berlin are known as some of the best cars in the world. We know you love them, too. But for the Easter Weekend, as our special Uber version of the Easter egg hunt, we have a special surprise for all of you: From Friday to Monday, we are incredibly proud to be able to introduce some amazing cars to the Uber network.  Let us introduce you to our three beautiful, vintage friends:

DSC_0272Mercedes 220, 1953

This is a rare beauty. The 220 Sedan went out of production in 1954, and had a top speed of 140 Km/h, which for the time was an amazing speed for a street car. Despite their tradition as a manufacturer of luxury cars, after the end of the war Mercedes-Benz produced only four cylinder engined passenger cars until 1951. The Mercedes-Benz 220 and the more powerful Mercedes-Benz 300, introduced at the same time, were the first post-war Mercedes-Benz models to feature six cylinder engines. With enough space for 4 people, we promise you you will never experience something like this again.

Rolls-Royce

Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, 1970

Also named “the Penthouse on wheels”, this one is the favourite of the author of this post! With seats like Sofas, beautiful bodywork and a 6.8L engine that makes the corresponding sound,  you will immediately fall in love with it. Produced in the UK in various forms from 1965 to 1980, It was the first Rolls-Royce to use a monocoque chassis. To date, the Silver Shadow has the largest production volume of any Rolls-Royce.

We hope you love these three beauties as much as we do. We are adding one of these to the roads of Berlin on every day of the long weekend, so with a little bit of luck you’ll be able to grab one of them.

Bentley T2

Bentley T2, 1970

The Bentley T-Series was produced in the UK from 1965 to 1980. It was announced and displayed for the first time at the Paris Motor Show on 5 October 1965 as a Bentley-badged version of the totally redesigned chassis-less Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow (see below).

The Bentley T series was available as a four-door saloon and as a long wheelbase four-door saloon. A small number of two-door saloons were built and a two-door convertible with coachwork by Mulliner Park Ward was introduced in September 1967. As for the inside: You have to experience it to believe it.

Have a great Easter holiday!

Your Team from @Uber_Berlin

UberEATS: Using technology to build a reliable food delivery experience

A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button.

And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
