BMW received a “Happy 100th birthday!” message from its long-time domestic rival Mercedes-Benz in a cool little video posted on Facebook.
The folks at Mercedes didn’t miss a chance to remind those at BMW that Mercedes has been around 30 years longer than the Bavarian automaker though.
“Thanks for 100 years of competition. The previous 30 years were a bit boring,” the blurb in the video read.
ercedes-Benz was founded in 1886, a good 30 years before Munich-based BMW started its business.
Earlier “The Three Pointer” offered BMW staff free tickets to the Mercedes-Benz museum in Stuttgart “to discover the complete history of the automobile” from March 8 to 13. It also promised free parking spaces to the visiting BMW staff, closer to the entrance.
