A futuristic swirl on the cityscape, the Mercedes-Benz Museum takes a chronological spin through the Mercedes empire. Look out for legends such as the 1885 Daimler Riding Car (the world’s first petrol-powered vehicle) and the record-breaking Lightning Benz that hit 228km/h at Daytona Beach in 1909.
