Benz Patent-Motorwagen


Yes, it is what it looks like. The first car ever made now in Lego form. Unveiled to the public in July of 1886, the Patent-Motorwagen became the first vehicle to be designed to use an internal combustion engine and is regarded as the first car. In August 1888, Karl Benz's wife Bertha Benz took can No.3 on a drive through Germany that was about 121 miles total, thus proving the feasibility of long distance car travel.

This model is more or less intended as a shelf piece rather than a toy, but it features all the details of the original car. Lego never seems to make a truly classic car like the this one from 1886.
