Hanoi – The Mercedes Fascination Motorshow this year’ edition, from 9 – 12 June, 2011 at Giang Vo Exhibition Center in Hanoi, definitely states the vision of Mercedes-Benz to celebrate the glorious 125 year anniversary and continue to lead the world of luxury automobile in all areas. Also, everything the company putting together is depicting the brand’s powerful performance and high agility while especially show-casing the new idea of “Chic meet Sleek” first-time in Vietnam to debut the all-new unconventional modish C-class 2012 series.
Dr. Udo Loersch – General Director of MB Vietnam said: “As we celebrates 125th birthday of automobile all over the world, in the Mercedes Fascination 2011, we want to showcase to public here our decades of success from the beginning when Karl Benz invented the world’s first automobile in 1886 to today’s most latest marvelous model – the new C-class 2012”.
It was on 29 January 1886 that the brand founder Karl Benz filed an application in Berlin for a patent on his three-wheeled motor car, called Benz Patent Motor Car. Ever since, that day has been considered the official birthday of the motor car, which in 2011, celebrates its 125th anniversary. At the same time as Benz, Gottlieb Daimler was developing the first four-wheeled motor car. In this way, working independently of each other, the founding fathers of today's Daimler AG and its globally successful Mercedes-Benz core brand laid the foundation stone for all present-day passenger cars, commercial vehicles.
