Daimler Riding Car.

Daimler Riding Car.

For Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach, the riding car was an early test vehicle for their small high-speed internal combustion engine, the so-called Grandfather Clock. The riding car – of which you see a replica here – was not only the first gasoline-engined vehicle but also the world’s first motorcycle.
