Mercedes-Benz history and information

The Mercedes-Benz Story

Ask anyone, Mercedes-Benz is the epitome of German luxury vehicles. Their slogan says it all, "The Best Or Nothing”. However, before that, the company's engineers were at the source of the petroleum powered engines. Karl Benz's 1886 patent and Gottlieb Daimler's innovations were so important for the industry that they are widely credited for building the first modern automobile. Even though these two creative minds did not work as a team, they soon united under the Daimler-Benz banner to consolidate their ideas. In 1926, the first Mercedes-Benz rolled out of the factory. The company diligently put their engineers to work and the results are some of the most important innovations of the automobile sphere. These important additions cover every inch of a car's anatomy, from the four-wheel brakes to the traction control systems and beyond. Mercedes-Benz's reputation of flawless quality serves all of its consumers, from the diplomat to the race driver. These improvements proved fruitful, as proven by Mercedes-Benz's habit of breaking speed records, most notably by producing the first car to breach the 200 km/h barrier. This explains the success of this brand in racing. If you ever tuned up your Mercedes-Benz, it is well worth the time to keep its appearance top-notch as well with TouchUpDirect's best quality touch up paint.
