125 years ago

January 29 marks an important milestone in the history of Mercedes-Benz, inventor of the motor car and the world's most famous marque - on that day back in 1886 Carl Benz filed an application in Berlin  for a patent on his three-wheeled "horseless carriage". Early critics claimed the contraption had no future; 125 years and over 80,000 patent applications later they couldn't be more wrong.
