Mercedes-Benz sells the replica of the very first carJune 23, 2018
This is the very first car with an internal combustion engine that has ever been patented. This is a real rarity – a similar vehicle existed in the distant 1886! The price of the Motorwagen is only available on request – but there is no doubt that it will not be small.
According to official information, the Mercedes-Benz Museum together with a special division of All Time Stars, is currently selling the first car that was officially registered with the patent office. This vehicle was named Benz Patent Motorwagen. It is reported that the original is not sold, but its replica, which is as close as possible to the original car. According to the representatives of the German automaker, the car is fully functional.
We would like to note that Benz Patent Motorwagen is the very first car with an internal combustion engine, which was officially patented on January 29, 1886. It is with this vehicle that the history of the legendary Mercedes-Benz brand begins.
As a tribute to this “old man”, the leadership of the German company instructed its engineers to create a series of replicas of the patent Motorwagen – they were created between 2001 and 2002. It is this particular sample, which is currently being sold, that was built in 2002. As already mentioned, the car is fully functional and has a relatively small mileage, since replicas were mainly built for museums and other public exhibits.
Information about the vehicle is available only on request, but we noticed three things that you might be interested in: the replica of the car has a top speed of 16 km / h, a 1-cylinder internal combustion engine acts as the power unit and the car received a leather interior.
