Ever since Mercedes-Benz created the first automobile in 1886, they have made a habit of pioneering new ideas that evolve into industry standards. Dynamic performance. Luxury and style. Classic lines with just a hint of aggression. Passion. These are the elements that Mercedes-Benz forges into the DNA of every vehicle that leaves the factory. They are fully commited to fulfilling every desire of the most demanding driver, especially in the realms of luxury, comfort and performance. By inventing innovative technical approaches (including the airbag, electronic anti-lock brakes, three-point seat belt, satellite navigation, active cruise control) and by creating cars that are exclusive and unique in their technology and overall ambience, Mercedes-Benz has been and will continue to be the benchmark for all auto manufacturers.
In 1926, Mercedes-Benz had already enjoyed success in the new sport of motor racing beginning in the the very first automobile race Paris to Rouen 1894. This has continued, and throughout its long history, the company has been involved in a range of motorsport activities, including Formula One, Formula Three, IndyCar, DTM, Le Mans, and rally racing. Their racing heritage, along with the expertise from their AMG tuning house, has spawned an arsenal of elite high performance cars, such as the CLK GTR, SLR McLaren, SLS AMG, and the entire Black series line-up.
Today, with over 125 years of history, Mercedes-Benz is the avant garde in automotive ingenuity, luxury and performance world wide. They incorporate their engineering philosophy into every vehicle to cater to the needs of all drivers, from the ultra luxury limousine Maybach to the executive luxury sedan S-Class to the nimble city runner Smart Fortwo.
