Mercedes-Benz has always been noticed for its durability and power since it’s the hour of birth as a brand at a race in Nice. The European marketing strategist and an automobile entrepreneur drove the machine under the pseudonym “Monsieur Mercédès”, promoting “horseless” Daimler automobiles among the highest circles of society, later evolving into one of the best automotive brands in the world.
