Another great European car of the vintage period was the Mercedes which, happily, like the Rolls, is still in production today. Below is the typical top-of-the-range touring car of the period, the 1927 Mercedes-Benz. An interesting feature on this model is the dual windscreen.

Mercedes started life as Daimler but the name was changed in a bid to defeat sales resistance from the French. It was thought that the Germanic sounding Daimler only fanned the hatred France had for the Germans.
