Mercedes - Benz 710 Super Sport 1930 front zw.psd
The Mercedes - Benz 710 from 1930 is one of the most famous super-sedans ever made. It was the second car produced by Benz, following the company's previous model, the Mercedes Sixt, which was destroyed in an air attack during World War I. This second model was an instant hit and Mercedes quickly became the brand of choice for luxury-car owners all over the world. Its success led to a number of Mercedes - Benz models being designed, but the'Rolls Royce' name never left the air as it was a direct result of the war. The cars changed slightly, but the engine stayed the same and the rest is history.
Production on the Mercedes - Benz 710 Super Sport was stepped up during the war, with Mercedes receiving requests for modifications and upgrades from the military and police forces. Car producers were aware that war was about to break out and that they needed to be prepared. This is why Mercedes started building war cars before the war even started, such as the Mercedes - Benz 3.5 Convertible, which helped the war effort immensely. Other modified cars like the Mercedes - Benz 710s Hummer, which were used by the British military, and the Mercedes - Benz 710 Silver Arrow, which saw action in the Pacific, also had a strong impact on the production of Mercedes cars.
Mercedes - Benz continued to make high quality, luxurious, and stylish cars throughout the war years, but they never lost the 'bling' that made them so successful. After the war, production moved to the larger cities of Frankfurt and Cologne, where demand for Mercedes - Benz cars was even higher than it was previously. With the introduction of the MGB division, which meant 'MG', the first Mercedes - Benz to carry this name and emblem went on to become the most popular car in the world for the first time. The cars continued to stay in high demand, and although production moved into the manufacturing factories of VW and BMW, it is Mercedes - Benz, which is at present the largest making automobile in the world.
