Daimler – Germany

Engineer Gottlieb Daimler (1834-1900) had worked on the development of petrol engines before his first car was built in 1886.  The Daimler Motoren Gesellschaft was founded in 1890 and cars were produced under the Daimler name until 1901.  After this, vehicles were named Mercedes after the daughter of Emil Jellinek, who was a major dealer in Daimler cars.
