I believe the first production car with LED taillights is the Cadillac DTS. HIDs might have been the 1993 or 1994 MB S class

First EFI car was from AMC, I guess you're talking mechanical fuel injection (which reaaaaaally sucks lol)

The first turbo car I believe is the Oldsmobile Jetfire. It also had water injection.

Merc was not the first to offer an airbag. It was in the 1973 Oldsmobile Toronado.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airbag

Technically it was the Jensen FF that had ABS in the 1960s. No mention of Merc at all.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-lock_braking_system

DOHC were used on Peugot's in 1912 on their race cars. Alfa was the mainstream manufacturer to introduce DOHC in 1928. Sunbeam did in 1925, but in more limited numbers.
