Why not ask the person who suggested it?

Are they possibly taking about a jump sponsored by Mercedes at a show?

I've never heard of that either. There's not that many things you can do with a jump and only so many ways you can configure them - essentially single, double (close together or spreads), single/double with water under it, etc. Then they are prettied up with stylized wings, rails, etc. I'd maybe try googling pictures of some of bigger sponsored horse shows and see if there is a jump where the Mercedes logo is attached to it.

Oh ye of little imagination! Haha I've jumped many an odd thing that my coaches have come up with. Off the top of my head, an X where you jump the middle (long poles and a box to hold up the middle), triple bars, fans, Swedish oxers, corners..

I may be wrong, but I think a Mercedes is a set of three uprights set in a configuration so that they form a Y shape together. You jump one, skip the following, jump the third, do a complete 180 turn, jump the skipped one. It's a really fun exercise!
