Mercedes tells five untold stories (you might be unimpressed with)

We truly think Mercedes has better stories to tell

In yet another “Best of Benz” short clip, we’re presented five facts about Mercedes-Benz’s history, some of which you probably haven’t heard of. 

The thing is, this title might be a bit misleading, some of the entries being quite… common. On number five, we learn that Mercedes used measurement cars to, well, measure things in developing a vehicle. Next, we’re told about the Climatic Wind Tunnel, a simulation technology that’s been used… by other manufacturers as well?

I don’t want to be superficial here but, being a Top 5, we’re expecting amazing facts. Like the 1908 “BlitzenBenz” Grand Prix racer which used the biggest displacement ever seen in a Mercedes: a 21.5-liter four-cylinder. 

Want to hear a stinging Untold Story? Mercedes’ “Best of Benz” series looks like a Porsche Top 5 rip-off. C’mon, Mercedes, you can do better than that, at least topic-wise. Best or nothing, remember?
