Mercedes-Benz – large German corporation, which name each motorist knows in every spot on the globe. Thanks to successful activity of concern, and also commitment of her heads, firm it was succeeded to be beaten out in the three of the leading car makers of the world. And thanks to availability of cars and high quality of their assembly, the brand became popular not only in the homeland, in Germany, but also is far beyond its limits. Today the Mercedes-Benz company which headquarters is in Stuttgart, is subsidiary of Daimler-Benz concern. "Mercedes-Benz" as the company and a trademark, it was founded in 1926.
The history of brand began the counting after Gottlieb Deimler's death in 1900 when management for that time of not registered company was assumed by Wilhelm Maybach – the friend and Daimler's colleague. The same year work on the new car having a classical arrangement of the engine and a radiator began. Connection with transmission passed through a gear transmission to back wheels, and the 35 h.p. power unit quite coped with the task set for it as car lump hardly exceeded 500 kg.
So, in fact, the company, and together with it – the Mercedes-Benz trademark was also formed. In 1923 the management of the company made the decision on development and production of cars with the six-liter engine and short base of the chassis – Model K, and then – Model S which served further as a reference point for creation of the subsequent models.
It should be noted that after death of Daimler his son refused to take further part in work of concern and left the company which became for it a home, even despite that its contribution to development can't be overestimated. Regular quarrels with Maybach which led to such result became the reason for that.
The first serial Mercedes-Benz car released from the conveyor of concern was equipped with the engine in 100 hp. After a while, the car was modified slightly, having installed on it the 7-liter engine on the basis of which the sports car of "SSK" was created. The maximum speed of model made 160 km/h that was simply inconceivable for that time. In a year after release of "SSK" the concern turned to work over the new model "Mercedes-Benz" - "SSKL" which, in a consequence, became the eternal favourite of various racing competitions for many years.
The subsequent time and up to 1926, the company was engaged in release of wide scale of cars of various classes. To this period of the public it was presented both a succession of racing cars Mercedes, and a number of road cars, of engines from 1568 to 9575 cubic cm. The cars with the closed body type in large quantities appearing in the market also belong to cars of this "generation".1 - 50 | 51 - 100 | 101 - 150 | 151 - 200 | 201 - 250 | 251 - 300 | 301 - 350 | 351 - 400 | 401 - 450 | 451 - 500 | 501 - 550 | 551 - 600 | 601 - 650 | 651 - 700 | 701 - 750 | 751 - 800 | 801 - 850 | 851 - 900 | 901 - 950 | 951 - 1000 | 1001 - 1050 | 1051 - 1100 | 1101 - 1150 | 1151 - 1200 | 1201 - 1250 | 1251 - 1300 | 1301 - 1350 | 1351 - 1400 | 1401 - 1450 | 1451 - 1500 | 1501 - 1550 | 1551 - 1600 | 1601 - 1650 | 1651 - 1700 | 1701 - 1750 | 1751 - 1800 | 1801 - 1850 | 1851 - 1900 | 1901 - 1950 | 1951 - 2000 | 2001 - 2037
