Karl Benz had been developing engines since the beginning of 1880, however it was after five years that he with the able support of his new partners built the first petrol motorcar in the world.
With 3-wheels, this car fitted with a 954 cc single-cylinder engine had a large flywheel that gave a power output of less than 1 hp. The Imperial Patent Office on January 29, 1886 granted a patent numbered 37435. The car weighing about 300 kg could travel at a speed of 15 km/hr. About 25 were produced during the years 1886-1894.
In 1888, Karl Benz wife, Bertha Benz took the Benz Patent Motorwagen and drove from Mannheim to Pforzheimin, a distance of 104 km to visit her mother. She thus becoming the first woman in the world to drive an automobile powered by an internal combustion engine.
