Mercedes-Benz is a German manufacturer of vehicles, division of Daimler AG (formerly known as Daimler-Benz and DaimlerChrysler). The brand is known for its luxury, buses and trucks vehicles. Its slogan is "The best or nothing" ("the best or nothing").
The closest competitors of Mercedes-Benz in today's market of high-end cars are Audi, Volvo, Alfa Romeo, BMW, Lincoln, Cadillac, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lexus and Acura. The famous three-pointed star, designed by Gottlieb Daimler, symbolizes the capacity of their engines for use on land, sea or air. 
At the beginning of the 20th century, Daimler cars built in Untertürkheim (a district of Stuttgart) were successfully driven an Austrian distributor called Emil Jellinek, scoring cars under the name of his daughter, Mercedes. After suggesting some design modifications, Jellinek promised the company buying a big production of its vehicles under the condition of having guaranteed to be the exclusive distributor of Daimler for Austria-Hungary, France, Belgium and the USA, and that It could sell the new model under the name of "Mercedes". The name change was very useful to prevent legal problems, since Daimler had sold exclusive rights of use of the name and the technical drawings to companies abroad, which have been and are constructed of luxury in England under the Daimler brand cars. A fire destroyed the old piano factory Steinway in New York, which had been modernized to produce Mercedes cars, ended early with the dream of building Mercedes in the United States.
Gottlieb Daimler was born on March 17, 1834 in Schorndorf. After an apprenticeship as a gunsmith, he studied mechanical engineering at the Polytechnic School of Stuttgart. At the end of 1863, he was appointed inspector of workshops of a factory of machinery of Reutlingen. There he agreed in 1865 with Wilhelm Maybach. In 1872 they named him technical director of the Deutz Gasmotorenfabrik, where he met Otto four-stroke engines. In 1882, he leaves the company and installed a workshop in the greenhouse of his villa in Cannstatt. In 1884 he manages along with Maybach to build an engine of internal combustion of low weight and compact dimensions known today as «floor clock». So feel the basis for incorporation in a vehicle. Rival companies Daimler Motorengesellschaft and Benz & Cie. they began to cooperate with each other in the 20 years to deal with the economic crisis of those years, finally merged in 1926 to create Daimler-Benz AG, which produced trucks and cars Mercedes-Benz. The brand's logo is the silver three-pointed star surrounded by a circle. The symbol appeared for the first time in a Daimler car in 1909. The laurels, the Benz brand symbols, were added in 1926 to symbolize the union of the two firms. The flat ring that connects the three tips of the star was first used in 1937. Reportedly, the star has its origin in a postcard that Jellinek wrote his daughter Mercedes indicating with her point (on a plane) where Bad Cannstatt factory was located. Also says that with her are designated land, sea and air: in which Daimler engines had been pioneers and elements that symbolize the original search for Daimler to provide small and powerful engines useful for travel by any of them. While focused on land vehicles, Mercedes-Benz also built engines for boats and aircraft (civilian and military), and even for zeppelins.
Mercedes-Benz vehicles have focused on a high degree of quality and art into his designs. As a result, they have historically been more expensive and manufactured in smaller amounts than other cheaper vehicles. The company has carefully cultivated an image of technical superiority and quality service in their designs, so that their cars have often been the choice of the rich and famous. Although it has been more famous for his models of sedan and its luxury cars, also have been built by MB a large number of outstanding sports. Examples of these were the SSK developed by Porsche and the "gull wing" (Gullwing) 300SL of 1954. On the other hand, Mercedes-Benz has also produced higher production and less expensive cars. Interestingly, Volkswagen prototypes were built and tested in Stuttgart in cooperation with Porsche. Prior to this, Mercedes-Benz had also built a small car with a rear engine similar to the VW, but that did not succeed any, 130 H.
Their products have been known to the creation and introduction of the most advanced technologies, highlighting the injection engine and ABS, among many others. However, these have not always worked: recently, an active brake system installed on more than 600 000 vehicles had to be removed to repair the problems.  To this is added that the reputation of the company's security has been challenged when it was described as low in recent studies on consumers. 
The company's top engineers were Ferdinand Porsche and Wilhelm Maybach. Both left the company to create its own model of automobile. Porsche developed for Volkswagen (whose translation is: popular car) model Volkswagen Beetle, and Maybach, on the contrary, a self-titled luxury sedan. Daimler-Benz would buy Maybach years later.
Gotlieb Daimler died in 1900 and Karl Benz and Wilhelm Maybach died in 1925. In 1950 was presented the S-class, the segment of luxury Mercedes Benz, there was the S Coupe, which in 1999 was replaced by the CL.
