Mercedes-Benz remains as the most admired car company, even after 125 years of presence. Backed by an Internet survey where Mercedes vehicles took first place in six different eras.
Automotive News’ “Legends on Wheels” was a survey which attracted over 100,000 participants. And those Internet users chose Mercedes-Benz as legends on six out of fourteen categories. For the era before 1900, they voted on Benz’ patented motor car in the first place followed by Daimler Riemenwagen. The other cars that were voted are: Blitzen Benz for 1910-1919, Mercedes-Benz model 500 K for 1930s, Mercedes 300 SL 2000-present: Mercedes SLS AMG for 1950-1959. The ultimate legend, which means it is the legends of legends, is the Mercedes 300 SL.
