Mercedes-Benz was founded by Karl Benz in 1886. His first car was a petrol-powered automobile that was patented under the name Motorwagen. Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft marketed the vehicle in 1901 and in 1902, Emil Jellinek, an Austrian entrepreneur designed the trademark for Mercedes. Through the years, changes and mergers to the company took place that lead the company to be what it is known to be today. Mercedes also played a big role in the Germany Nazi years, making automobiles used by some of the most powerful names in the country, including Hitler. Hitler was only ever seen in a Mercedes, the Mercedes model 770, though his was donned with bulletproof glass windows and windshield. Some of these models still exist today but are found in museums now or owned by collectors. On January 1, 1999, Mercedes-Benz developed into Mercedes-Benz AMG and still holds this name today. Mercedes has developed a stronghold place in the world of luxury automobiles and is a leader in auto and technology innovation. Their automobiles are some of the most sought-after cars of any brand by collectors and auto enthusiasts alike.
