Mercedes-Benz Info

Mercedes-Benz is a German name brand of automobiles that is currently owned by DaimlerChrysler AG. The company was first founded in 1926 when two companies merged.

Mercedes-Benz is one of the most prestigious brand names in the world. Mercedes’ past ties make it the longest and oldest produced automobile of all times.

The three star Mercedes symbol was designed by Gottlieb Daimler and represents the company’s ability to design vehicles for land, sea, and air. The symbol with the ring first appeared on a DMG model in 1909.

In 1998, Daimler-Benz and Chrysler created a “merger of equals” and created DaimlerChrysler AG. The Mercedes brand is famous for producing limousine type cars but shouldn’t be overlooked for their accomplishments on the racing circuit either. Mercedes has been involved in sports car racing and rally racing as early as the 1890’s.

Mercedes’ dealerships are available worldwide in over 130 countries. Mercedes even offers a European delivery option. The European delivery option may work in the buyers favor and work toward keeping costs down.
