1886 Benz Patent Motorwagen – Birth of the Motorcar
Posted by Dennis Adler on Monday, October 12, 2015 in 1880s, Articles, Benz, Car Collector Magazine, Patent Motorwagen

A motorized three-wheeler identical to this one claimed the right to be called the first motorcar. The example pictured is one of a handful of reproductions built by Daimler- Benz craftsmen in 1986, using the same tools and materials 
as Carl Benz, to commemorate the marque’s 100th anniversary.

This January 29th of Twenty-O-Six we celebrate the birth of an idea put forward 120 years ago, that man should not be limited in his ability to travel by the constraints of steel rails or the shortcomings of horse-drawn carriages. To be truly free, one must not be encumbered by schedules and routes, or the stamina of horses. Thus a young German engineer named Carl Benz took to task the idea of motorized personal transportation in the mid 1880s.

The birth of the automobile, powered by an internal combustion engine, can be traced back to 1885 when Benz opened the doors of his small Mannheim workshop and rode around the yard in a three-wheeled carriage powered by a single cylinder engine of his own design. Of course, in 1885 the gasoline engine was not a new idea. Large, stationary engines had been in use since the latter part of the century to power industrial and farm machinery, in fact, Carl Benz had pioneered their development. It was his conception of a small, single-cylinder version, however, that allowed him to create a phenomenon—the motorized carriage.
