Mercedes-Benz is a global automobile manufacturer and a division of the German company Daimler AG. The brand is known for luxury vehicles. The headquarters is in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg. The name first appeared in 1926 under Daimler-Benz. Mercedes-Benz traces its origins to Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft’s 1901 Mercedes, and Karl Benz’s 1886 Benz Patent-Motorwagen, which is widely regarded as the first gasoline-powered automobile. The slogan for the Mercedes brand is “the best or nothing”. Since its inception, Mercedes-Benz had maintained a reputation for its quality and durability. The two companies which were merged to form the Mercedes-Benz brand in 1926 had both already enjoyed success in the new sport of motor racing throughout their separate histories. Throughout its long history, the company has been involved in a range of motorsport activities, including sports car racing and rallying.
Mercedes-Benz have produced some of the world’s most collectable automobiles, including the R107 SL Class, the Porsche-built E500, 300 SL Gullwing, W121 190SL, W111 S-Class Cabriolet and W113 SL “Pagoda” models, to name just a few.
