history in a
A journey through time: from the origins of the motor car into the future.
On the occasion of the 125th birthday of the motor car, Daimler AG has brought out a new version of the chronicle of the company. Comprising 432 pages, the standard reference work presents the history, brands and products of the oldest automotive manufacturer in the world. Short biographies of automotive pioneers and company founders Carl Benz, Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach provide an insight into the often difficult yet equally successful route taken by the three inventors in turning their vision of mobility into a reality. The most comprehensive section of the book is made up of a chronology of Daimler AG and its founding companies, covering almost 2000 events dating from 1883 to 2011.
The content, together with around 2000 photos, has been obtained almost exclusively from the archives of Mercedes-Benz Classic. The chronicle is available at a cost of 30 euros from the Mercedes-Benz Museum Shop as well as online from the Mercedes-Benz Classic Store at mercedes-benz-classic-store .
