1886 Benz Patent Motorwagen

Back in August, when I was in Stuttgart, Germany, I stopped by the Mercedes Benz museum. They had a demonstration of a restored one cylinder four stroke gasoline engine “car” — the Benz Patent Motorwagen. It was the first one built in 1886.

We’ve come a long way since then, but I can imagine how exciting it was to drive one of these back then.
