One of the first cars released under the name Mercedes-Benz was the 8/38. Introduced in 1926, the 8/38 was based on the W02 platform and named in convention with German standards, where the 8 stands for tax horsepower, and the 38 stands for actual horsepower. After this naming convention was ended in the late 1920s, the 8/38 became known as the Typ Stuttgart 200. These cars were available in a variety of body styles including tourenwagen, cabriolet, and sedan. Mercedes-Benz W02 based cars were in production until 1933.
