This DVD brings you the fascinating story behind one of the oldest
and most successful producers of cars, driven by royalty, racers and the very
rich since the turn of the century.
Discover how Mercedes-Benz has consistently
created designs which combine the highest levels of luxury with the newest
technology to exude an opulence maintained for over a hundred years.

trademarks around. Superb racing and factory line footage along with original
advertising allow you to follow the evolution of the three-pointed star from the
turn of the century to the huge corporation of today, which incorporates the
famous brands Maybach, Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and smart.
Special features include an in-depth look at the birth and development of
Chrysler before its inception into Mercedes-Benz AG in 1998, using unique
archive road, race, and safety-testing footage. Also includes detailed features
on classic Mercedes-Benz models including the SS, 300SL, 500K, 190SL and footage
