Information, documents, pictures and much more from the history of the world’s oldest automobile manufacturer: the archives of Mercedes-Benz Classic house a unique treasure. In future, anyone interested can go to the Public M@RS website to directly access this knowledge about the history of the brand and its products.
“Fascinating history consists of exciting stories. This is especially true of the history of Daimler AG, which dates back to the invention of the automobile by Carl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler in 1886. Our aim is to bring this resource even closer to the general public,” says Michael Bock, Head of Mercedes-Benz Classic and Customer Center. “With Public M@RS, therefore, we are providing information from our unique brand, company and technology history in the form of an extensive database.”
The abbreviation ‘M@RS’ stands for Multimedia Archive and Research System. This is the name under which Mercedes-Benz Classic 15 years ago developed an internet portal with information from the archives where, for example, registered journalists and researchers are able to explore details and backgrounds concerning the diverse history of Daimler.
This database, which is used intensively by the specialist public, was also the starting point for development of the new Public M@RS, which is online from 30 January 2015 and is freely available without login to anyone interested.
The portal is available without login at the address https://mercedes-benz-publicarchive.com.
