ALBERT DE DION
The automobile was invented in Germany, but the French pioneered its use and development as a social icon. One person behind both phenomena was Albert, marquis de Dion.
Eberhard von Kuenheim, 75, turned BMW from a small Bavarian manufacturer into a global player.
August Horch was a pioneering German entrepreneur who founded not one but two auto companies that bore his name.
A number of key contributors to the automobile worked in the shadows of the great pioneers. Wilhelm Maybach was one of them.
