Mercedes-Benz through the Years: Top 11 Marvelous Models

Janis Joplin was a wise woman. In 1970, days before her untimely demise, she recorded the song Mercedes-Benz featuring the memorable line, “Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes-Benz?” While her intention may have been to take an ironic stab at consumerism, we can still respect her taste. Let’s not forget that Janis drove an unforgettable custom psychedelic Porsche 356C cabriolet. Regardless, if you’re going to pray for a car, Mercedes makes a fine selection.

The Tri-Star logo and the vehicles that wear it as a badge of honor are some of the most high performance cars in history. A symbol of both luxury and power, Mercedes Benz is a name that cannot be denied.

Mercedes-Benz has been rolling out luxurious and innovative cars since 1881, making it the oldest car manufacturer in the world still present in the modern market. The time-tested automaker’s longevity can be attributed to forward thinking engineers and designers who consistently serve up performance-driven vehicles that push the boundaries of what can be achieved around the racetrack and on the road. A tradition of exquisite craftsmanship using first-rate materials has set a high benchmark, one that competitors have been scrambling to keep up with for years.
