The 60 HP Mercedes-Simplex car was the most powerful car in 1904.
A shorter wheelbase version was used for racing while a longer one was constructed on the orders of Emil Jellinek, the Austrian founder of Daimler Benz for himself. With a 2750 mm wheelbase, Emil had a comfortable and wide body frame constructed over the chassis. A 4-cylinder engine with 9200 cc displacement having a power of 70 hp was used that could take this car to speeds of 120 km/hr.
And all this in 1907, therefore giving it the title of the world’s first limousine.
