Mercedes-Benz - a star in the automotive hall of fame. The beginnings of Mercedes-Benz go back to the year 1886, in which Carl Benz introduced his patent motorcar, which is considered the first automobile in the world. In the year 1901 the name Mercedes was brought into circulation for the first time, inspired by the daughter of the Austrian engineer Emil Jellinek, which was called Mercedes. Jellinek, who worked with Gottlieb Daimler, the founder of Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft, marketed the automobiles of Gottlieb Daimler under the name Mercedes, among others already in the United States of America. However, it took until 1926, the year in which the companies of Carl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler merged until the first car with the official brand name Mercedes -Benz ran off the line. In the year 2018, Mercedes-Benz was the best-selling premium car brand in the world and has also made a name for itself in terms of tuning for decades, as evidenced by various Mercedes tuners such as Brabus, Carlsson or Lorinser, which completely rely on the vehicle tuning of Mercedes-Benz -Automobiles have specialized.
