Birth of Mercedes 1901

For 1901 the Daimler agent for the south of France had persuaded the company to build a lower, sleeker car, which he also renamed in order to deflect the anti-German sentiment prevalent at the time.The name he chose was that of his daughter, Mercedes. 
I like the very simple but shapely front fenders, they look like a simple flat piece of sheet metal, twisted into the required shape.
