Mercedes-Benz is one of the oldest and most luxurious car companies in the world, worth around 80 billion dollars. But being among the most desired and expensive cars today, it’s easy to forget its early humble beginnings.
It all started with a poor engineer, who faced many doubts, hates and failures in his pursuit of building the first horseless carriage. In spite of that, he proved everyone wrong and turned his small venture into the world’s first and biggest production car company during the 1890s and early 1900s.
But what started as an inspiring success story, took a surprisingly dark turn, when the company profited from supplying military vehicles to the Nazis under the works of forced labors.
So well, sit back and relax, today we’ll be covering the insane story of Mercedes-Benz, and the man who brought automobiles to life, Karl Benz.

30 years ago, Hyundai was seen as a small Korean company that made cheap, ugly and unreliable vehicles. People even joked about the brand, saying you could double a Hyundai’s value if you filled it up with gas.
But now a days… they are among the best quality vehicles in the market, overthrowing giants like Ford, Honda and General Motors, to become the third largest producer of cars in the global market.
But what’s fascinating about this, is the man who started it all.
A farm boy, who only wanted to escape from poverty, left home as a teenager and embarked on a journey full of failures, misfortunes and embarrassments.
Despite the adversity, he went on to create the biggest company in South Korea and took over by storm not only the automobile industry, but also shipbuilding, construction and so much more, turning himself into the richest man in Korea.
This is the rags to riches story of Hyundai, and the man behind it, Chung Yu-Jung.

In 1922, a 15-year-old boy shows up for his first day at work at a small auto-repair shop in Tokyo Japan. The owner, who questioned if the boy was even meant for this type of business, assigned him to clean the workshop and look after his child instead. At the time, nobody thought much of him, neither they cared, but only because they had no idea who this kid would eventually become.

Fast forwards a few decades, and that boy, Soichiro Honda, was now competing with some of the biggest car brands in the world, while also owning the largest motorbike manufacturer.
