Vehicle Description

You always remember the first, and the first production automobile is not easily forgotten, even if it is over 135 years since the Benz Patent -Motorwagen was first introduced . Carl Benz was issued patent DRP 37435 for his three-wheeled car with an internal combustion engine and electronic ignition. The original sits in a German museum, but Black Horse Garage is proud to represent this repl ica of the 1886 Benz Patent Motorwagen. The Patent-Motorwagen is powered by a 954-cc horizontally mounted, single-cylinder engine which produces a whopping 0.9 horsepower and can reach 9mph . It has a vertical crankshaft , belt primary drive through a large, horizontally mounted flywheel , and the final transmission to the rear wheels is via side chains. When you climb atop the raised drivers bench, you can adjust the choke with a dial under the seat. Instead of a steering wheel, there is tiller with an arrow that points the direction to steer the motorized tricycle. The hand lever to the drivers left does the rest. You pull it back to apply power to the rear wheels, push it forward for ne utral, and push it further forward to brake. This specific replica is a low production number at MBCC 020 . The Patent-Motorwagen was ahead of its time and this one is from the private collection from an other esteemed technological innovator. It is painted maroon with brass and copper components that shine and give the vehicle the feel from a simpler time of craftsmanship and invention. Do not miss your chance to drive the first motorcar to your next car show. It is certain to be an attraction and a showpiece.
