The brand is also one of the oldest German car brands and was founded in the year 1926. Karl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler founded the company together and that is why Mercedes-Benz is a brand of the Daimler AG. Karl Benz invented the first four-stroke internal combustion engine which was used in the Benz patent – Motorwagen in the year 1886.
The brand was first used under the automobile manufacturing company named Daimler-Benz which was also founded in the same year. The first car model to be manufactured under this brand was the Mercedes Benz 770 which was a very popular car model during the First World War period in Germany. The Nazi chiefs and even Hitler used to ride the Mercedes Benz 770 (W150) which was a remodelled version of the 770 model. It has made its mark in the history of Germany and no doubt it’s the best German car brand.
