the Museum does not go into to tell the only car brand milestones, but it provides at the same time an interesting overview of German history, the country's darkest moments of my life.

the Woman behind

the role of Women in auto history is significant. One example of this is the Carl benz's wife, Bertha, who made the couple's two boys with long ajorupeaman her husband a tricycle vehicle in the summer of 1886. Trip gave birth in the car around something, what today would be called hypeksi.

When Benz & Cie merged into Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaftiin 1926, the brand would come unexpectedly, Mercedes-Benz and not Daimler-Benz. The background was a French racing driver and Daimler distributor Emil Jellinek, who ordered himself a tailor-made racing car in 1900 at the turn. The car got Jellinekin daughter by the name of Mercedes, which in 1902 was registered Daimler trademarks.

This can be mentioned that the racing car was designed by Daimler, the then technical director Wilhelm Maybach, who a few years after he left the company to manufacture luxury cars in your name below. That company merged, in turn, the Daimler group in 1960 and the name is still alive in the group ylellisimmissä models.

political traction

today's German born after the second world war the reconstruction of the miracle of pregnancy and when the current federal government was born in 1949. Mercedes-Benz 300 (internal product code W186) was named, for example, generally ”Adeunaueriksi”, West germany's former chancellor Konrad Adenauer. Free advertising boosted sales and the company is rapidly internationalising and building already in the early 1950s assembly factories in Argentina, Brazil and India.

a Sign of a very successful race car business in the 1930s, had broken the second world war, but in the early 1950s the character returned again on the race track. When a race-car 300 SL (W194) was introduced in 1952, it took a double victory in Le Mans, and dominate at it through the sports car endurance competition.

Le Mans catastrophic accident in 1955, the racing action was abolished and Mercedes returned to the race track until the end of the 1980s F1 team sauber's engine supplier.

the Next year, the company's competitive activities in were focused, however, only the F1 car (W196) development, and that Juan Manuel Fangio drove to the world championship in 1954 and 1955. F1-car basis, was also built two-seater racing car 300 SLR (W196S), which was completely overwhelming in 1955 sports car races. A company car sport activity was abolished, however, altogether for decades after that period, when Pierre bouilli of control by car drove the worst crash in Le Mans. A car accident as a result of more than 80 spectators were killed and almost 200 injured.

the Legend is born

Although the racing action ended in an accident, the sports car manufacturer is by no means the end. An example of this is the car of history one of the iconic cars, in the years 1954 to 1957 completed the 300 SL ”Gullwing” Coupe (W198), whose doors opened upward like a gull's wings.

the Car strong and very lightweight aluminum frame had to cancel the original racing version in 1952, and in the car it was not possible to build a conventional door. In 1957, in its place came SL 300 Roadster, whose body had been modified so that it was able to install a normal door. The Roadster was in production until 1963.

These cars brand established in the 1950s status, especially luxury and sports car manufacturer, and also the U.S. market opened. Reputation is a position these days, and although the brand manufacturer now also a lot of ordinary passenger cars, sports cars are still an important part of the action.

Overall, the museum an interesting mix of technology, the stories and history appropriate for different ages, although the engine technology and the car itself is not interested.

the Museum is open tue-sun from 9 to 18. Entrance 10 euros.
