Sindelfingen: a car manufacturer. A department. A milestone.
The horseless carriage was the beginning of an emerging automotive industry in Europe. There is one place which made this boom possible: Sindelfingen. The Daimler-Benz AG company set up a department there for the construction of special cars in 1932 and was part of the reason that Sindelfingen became an industrial town.
First-class bodies were built here which, 80 years on, can fetch over three million dollars at auction as well as win prizes for their unique and exclusive design. Every car lover today still wants one of these vehicles in their garage.
