Did you know Mercedes – a Spanish girls’ name meaning “grace” – was the name of the daughter born to Austrian businessman Emil Jellinek who, as a progressive entrepreneur enthused by the dawning age of the automobile, was instrumental, around the beginning of the last century, in encouraging Daimler Mercedes to produce high quality and high powered motor cars.
