eMercedesBenz Feature: The World's First Production Car, The Benz Patent Motor Car V

Karl Benz played a prominent role in promoting the development of the automobile. Some 25 units of the Benz Patent Motor Car of 1886 – the world's first automobile – were built. It goes without saying that Benz knew that a four-wheeled car would have greater cornering stability, however, he found the steering systems used for carriages at the time to be unsuitable for his purposes.

eMercedesBenz posted a full look at the Velocipede with several photos and plenty of information. I great look at how it all began.
