Mercedes-Benz is a premium car brand produced by the German concern Daimler AG. One of the three German car manufacturers selling the largest number of premium cars in the world.
For a while, the two car makers, Benz and Daimler, developed in parallel. In 1926, they merged into the Daimler-Benz concern.
The birth of the Benz brand dates back to 1886, when Karl Benz created the world's first three-wheeled car with an internal combustion engine running on gasoline.
On January 29, 1886, Benz received a patent for the invention of a three-wheeled car. The horizontal single-cylinder four-stroke engine weighed about 100 kg and was very light for the time. Its volume was 954 cubic meters. cm, and a power of 0.55 kW at 400 rpm. It had the same structural elements that are characteristic of internal combustion engines today: a counterbalanced crankshaft, electric ignition and water cooling. To travel 100 km, the car needed about 10 liters of gasoline.
In 1893, Benz produced the first four-wheeled vehicles based on a three-wheeled design. They were a little old-fashioned, but practical, durable, and affordable.
Later, Benz began to equip its cars with two-cylinder engines. In 1900, his company faced financial difficulties, so first French and then German engineers were invited.
Over time, four-cylinder engines began to be installed on the car, and the business of the company went uphill.
In 1909, the Blitzen Benz appeared - a racing car with improved aerodynamics, which was equipped with a 21,500 cc engine. cm and a capacity of 200 hp.
