2011 Mercedes-Benz S-Class W126 concept

2011 Mercedes-Benz S-Class W126 concept2011 Mercedes-Benz S-Class W126 concept, In the late 1980's, my neighbor - the coach on the Olympic team rowing academic - brought from abroad Mercedes.

The new "Mercedes" was to become not only more comfortable and safer than the predecessor, but also had to put ekonomichnee.Konstruktoram S-class on a rigid diet. Limousine "skinul" 280 kg. Helped, by the way, and I still have the same bumper, improving aerodynamics. The engines were to issue more torque at low revs, which will also help save fuel. When driving on the highway at a speed of 160 km / h pyatilitrovy motor rotated at speeds lower than 3000 per minute, and spent the entire 12 liters of gasoline.

2011 The history of Mercedes-Benz Company

2011 The history of  Mercedes-Benz Company2011 The history of Mercedes-Benz Company, The history of this brand consists of the stories of two famous brands - «Mercedes», produced by German company «Daimler-Motor-Gesellschaft» and «Benz», which are built the same firm. Both companies are quite well developed independently, and in 1926 merged to form a new company «Daimler-Benz».

So, in order. 1886. A three-self Vehicle petrol engine. In the same year, her creator - Karl Benz obtained a patent for an invention. The world's first three-car ready and put into serial production.Seven years later, losing the first Daimler, Karl Benz created a four-car, but next year even better design for a strange name «Cyclists» is a series.

In 1901, shortly after the release of a new model for Daimler «Mercedes-35PS» becomes clear how «Benz» behind progress. To catch up, shareholders are invited to contact the French engineer Marius Barbara. Due to technical differences, Carl Benz founded by him leaving the company. It soon became obvious - the Frenchman has not justified the hopes placed. Following the logic of the German cars to be made by German hands, the company, as Chief Engineer, was invited Fritz Erle. Again, no luck. Only with the arrival of talented engineers in the company of Hans Nibelya case slowly went up the hill. In 1909, a number of beautiful cars the company built the most famous racing car at the time «Blittsen Benz» motor power of 200 hp and the stunning amount 21594sm3.

In the postwar years, there have been many new models, most of which was successfully released until mid-twenties. In total since the start of production in 1886, and to unite with «Daimler-Motor-Gesellschaft» in 1926 the company «Benz» produced 47,555 vehicles, including cars, trucks and bus.
