January 1886. This project was funded by Bertha Benz.
Wilhelm Daimler (1834-1900), was a German inventor and engineer who
patented one of the first internal-combustion engines. In 1882, Daimler
and his long-time collaborator engineer Wilhelm Maybach established an

by liquid petroleum.
They founded the Daimler Motors Corporation (DMG); the mother company of the Mercedes cars.

name was introduced in 1901 by Austrian Emil Jellinek; an automobile
entrepreneur who worked with DMG. Inspired by his daughter Mercedes
Jellinek, he named the 1901 Mercedes 35 hp in her honor. The name was

The future is here….well, at least until 2025. This truck is like something out of a Science fiction movie, a glimpse into the brains of Mercedes Benz “wizards” to see their definition of a futuristic vehicle.
The truck boasts a sleek and aerodynamic look, radical LED lights and radar and camera systems. Would you like to hear the best part? The truck can move all by itself; however, a driver is still required. Ideally, the truck is meant to make the driver’s job easier—at least on highways.
This truck is as safe as they come; driving through traffic with precision. The driver can take a break by staring into his tablet. He will receive alerts every time he is needed on the wheel, yes, it is that cool!

Nicknamed the ‘laboratory on wheels,’ the model was quite a spectacle, coming with a design that looked way ahead of its time.
1978, the C111 hit 322 km/h at Nardò and averaged 16.0 liters/100 km at
316 km/h over a 12-hour cruise. Another record was set in 1979 after a
4.8 L twin KKK-turbocharged V8 version with 500 hp, recorded an average
lap-speed of 403.78 km/h.

The 2007 model was introduced in honor of a 1955 Formula 1 victory by Sir Stirling Moss who was driving a Mercedes Benz 300 SLR in the Mille Miglia. This model is meant to give you that grand-prix experience every time you drive in the streets; however, the catch is that you will also need pockets that put Donald Trump to shame.
Sir Stirling Craufurd Moss has been referred to as “The greatest driver who missed out on the F1 World Championship.” This British International Motorsports hall of famer was born in 17th September 1929; he is regarded by many as one of the greatest drivers to ever grace Formula One.
Yes folks, he was a Formula one star long before Michael Schummacker and Lewis Hamilton could spell the words Formula one.
Sir Stirling Moss had a long and illustrious career in which he enjoyed a lot of success; however, he never won the coveted championship. Between 1955 and 1961, he finished as runner-up on four occasions and third on three occasions. In 1962, Moss was involved in a near-fatal crash that he would later recover from but at the expense of his F1 career. He is a true hero of the sport who left a legacy for future F1 drivers.

Born in 1954, this model first came to the market as a two-seat coupe; it is indeed a sight to behold, boasting some of the coolest gull-wing doors you can ever ask for. Mercedes later re-introduced this model as an open roadster.
The booming post-war American market was the inspiration behind the introduction of this toned-down Gran Prix model. Simply put, this was the car to own for every wealthy American who was a performance enthusiast!
The 300sl was always ahead of her class; scoring “straight As” that made her the fastest production car of her time.
