Mercedes-Benz is part of German manufacturer Daimler AG, and the brand is used for luxury automobiles, buses, coaches, and trucks. The name first appeared in 1926 under Daimler-Benz but traces its origins to Daimler's 1901 Mercedes and to Karl Benz's 1886 Benz Patent Motorwagen, widely regarded as the first automobile.

In the article, 'Dubai replaces Hong Kong as flavour of the month on Jamie's menus', on page 1 of the Sunday Morning Post on January 9, we reported that Tranic Franchising had not responded to telephone calls, e-mails or agreed to personal interview requests from the Post. Tranic Franchising has now informed us it did not respond because it is bound by contractual restrictions on public statements in its agreements with Jamie Oliver organisation companies.

The caption accompanying a picture of a pre-war Mercedes-Benz W154 racing car which ran on page C2 of Saturday's South China Morning Post stated, wrongly, that it would be on show at Ocean Terminal until Tuesday. In fact the exhibition ends today. We apologise for the error, which was introduced in the editing process.
