The German automobile manufacturer has always dominated the European racing scene, collecting 84 wins in 156 races, as well as 10 driver’s championships and 13 constructor’s championships from competitions dating all the way back to the 1930s. Mercedes-Benz were always ahead of the times when it came to racing, and a new video put out by Mercedes-AMG showcases that their cars from back in the day are just as good as what they have now.
