Mercedes Congratulates BMW On Completing 100 Years With This Cool Advertisement
BMW is undoubtedly one of the Most popular car manufacturers in the world. Back in 1916, three other manufacturing companies, Rapp Motorenwerke and Bayerische Flugzeugwerke (BFw) in Bavaria, and Fahrzeugfabrik Eisenach in Thuringia came together and made BMW.
As you can imagine, this giant company recently completed 100 years in the market. On the completion of one century, they were in for a very special surprise by none other than Mercedes, who also happens to be the biggest rival of BMW.
