Auto Trivia

The automobile was invented in 1885, although the idea of a vehicle with wheels powered by some mechanical source had been alive for some time. Gottlieb Daimler has been referred to as "the father of the automobile" due to his invention of the gasoline explosion motor in 1883. By the time he died in 1900, he could claim patents for over 15 types of motors, all of which had practical applications. Mercedes Benz however gets credit for the actual invention in 1885. Carl Benz combined the cycle and internal combustion engine, designing the complete vehicle - engine, chassis, and transmission. Daimler built the first four-wheeled carriage in 1886
