Benz Patent Motorcar from 1886

The Benz patent motor car was the world's first gasoline powered automobile. Unlike Daimler's motorized carriage, the chassis was built from the ground up to support the engine.

Karl Benz designed it as a three-wheeler, as he was not satisfied with the steering systems available for for wheeled cars at that time.

 

In the back, you can also see the Daimler motorized carriage.
