Not to be missed: Mercedes-Benz lit up the IAA Cars 2015—along with a whole host of premieres. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupé and Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet world premieres were the highlights of the “Mercedes Dream Car Collection” at the IAA in Frankfurt.
1898 Daimler Twin-Cylinder 6HP Wagonette Daimler has an interesting history. Gottlieb Daimler set up his company in Germany in 1890. But a second Daimler popped up in Coventry in 1896. The British concern bought the rights to the Daimler name and their early cars used Panhard chassis and German Daimler engines. The German Daimler survives as the company that owns Mercedes-Benz. The British Daimler is owned by Jaguar and has been dormant for a few years.
