The Bayerische Motoren Werke turned 100 today and its rival from Stuttgart, the Mercedes-benz, congratulated in the classiest way possible. First it says “Thank you for 100 years of competition” and then “The previous 30 years were a bit boring”, referring to 1896, the year Mercedes-Benz came into existence.

The Mercedes-Benz Museum is inviting the employees of BMW from 8 to 13 March 2016, free admission to the museum in Stuttgart. Those arriving in a BMW will be allowed to park free of charge in a prominent position directly outside the entrance. The restaurant will additionally serve up a special Swabian speciality for the first 50 BMW employees at the end of their tour of 130 years of automotive history. Following their tour of the exhibition, they are also invited to partake of a Swabian speciality citing the double kidney shape of the signature BMW radiator grille.

“We warmly congratulate the globally renowned company BMW on its anniversary and invite all employees of BMW AG to discover the complete history of the automobile at the Mercedes-Benz Museum,” said Ralf Glaser, Head of Press and Marketing at Mercedes-Benz Classic. “The unique exhibition at our museum, which opened at its new location 10 years ago, takes visitors throughout the history of the automobile from its earliest beginnings – always in the context of the given historical and cultural background and contemporary innovative developments,” he added.
