It’s a huge day in the automotive world as German Giants of the car industry BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi have made a surprise announcement that they are to merge and form one super brand.

The shock announcement was released in a joint statement this morning in Munich by representatives of the three brands, Dr April Stellenberg, Ralf Fülgang and Gotya Vuntzagin.

The three German luxury brands declared, “We’ve been at loggerheads for too long. Our cars are so similar that it just made perfect business sense to join forces and make one version of each.”

The deal has reportedly been one year in the making and is set to make the newly formed super brand the second largest OEM in the world.

There has been no announcement on what the newly formed company is to be called, however early rumours floating around on Twitter include ‘Mercaudi-BMW’, ‘BMA’ (BMW Mercedes Audi) and ‘DLA’ (Deutsch Luxus-Autos or ‘German Luxury Motors’)

More details will be released later on today, so we’ll keep you posted….
