We like almost as much that two rival brands are enzarcen in battles advertising as to keep the axe of war to congratulate themselves, when so required by the events. And in this case it has been Mercedes-Benz the brand that has not wanted to miss the birthday of BMW, its first centennial, to congratulate one of its rivals a natural, more strong, in Europe and in the world.
Mercedes-Benz places her birth in the register of the patent of Karl Benz, the first car of an internal combustion engine.
Mercedes-Benz thanks to a hundred years of competition and ensures, not without derision, that the 30 previous years were much more boring without BMW. Recall that Mercedes-Benz places her birth in 1886, with the patent of the first car with internal combustion engine Karl Benz. And while it is true that it was really the germ of what we know today as Mercedes-Benz, his business would begin then under the Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft, to which the first models known truly as Mercedes-Benz began production in 1926, by the merger of the companies of Karl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler.
Happy 100th birthday, BMW! Here’s to another 100 years of competition.
