Two Benz models where name in the list of 25 Greatest Cars of All Time.

Automobile issue September 2007:

Two Benz models where named in the list of 25 Greatest Cars of All Time.
The Mercedes-Benz 300SL (no surprise, but interesting story about had the car came to be put into production for the public) and the Benz Motorwagen:

"...In 1888, with her husband (Karl Benz) down in the dumps (the Motorwagen was not selling very well), Bertha Benz and her two teenage sons secretly undertook a demonstration of the Motorwagen's real potential: an unprecedented journey of more than fifty miles to the town of Pforzheim, to see her mother. They stopped regularly at apothecaries, where fuel was sold in small quantities, and refilled the tank. They also replaced the cooling water as it evaporated, and they made minor repairs. Word spread of their progress, and as darkness settled, people held lanterns to light their way. At the journey's completion, Karl received a telegraph from the wayfarers. Their attention-getting gambit goes down as the first great marketing ploy of the automotive business."
