Benz Patent Motor Car.

The Benz patent motor car was the world's first gasoline-engined automobile. Unlike Daimler's motorized carriage, the motor car - of which you see a replica here - formed an autonomous entity of chassis and engine. Carl Benz designed the car as a three-wheeler because he was not satisfied with the steering systems available for four-wheeled vehicles back in 1886.
