When you are a company that has a long history of esteemed and prized luxury cars, creating a list of the top five of them all is often an exercise in futility. You add one model to that list only to second-guess yourself the moment you do it. That’s the problem a company like Mercedes-Benz has. Fortunately, it soldiered on and actually compiled a list as part of its “Best of Benz” video series. The results might surprise you, but ultimately, this is as authoritative a list of the best Mercedes luxury cars in history as you can find anywhere. Why? Because it came from Mercedes.
