A German Automobile Engineer – Creator of the World’s First Car

Alone and behold, we introduce to you the German car and engine engineer, Karl Friedrich Benz. He was born in 1844 in Mülberg, West of Karlsruhe. When the time came to apply for studies at a university, he decided to study at the University of Karlsruhe. Initially pursuing locksmith studies, later he decided to study locomotive engineering instead.

He introduced the first modern car to the world in 1886. The 100% handmade build of the modern car was completed in 1885 and successfully patented in 1886. Driven by sheer determination to find a way to create the automobile which provided convenient mobility, Karl Benz invented the car that changed the auto world forever.

Today, different vehicle models use several sources of fuel such as petrol, diesel, natural gas, electric, hydrogen, and solar. Karl created a two-seater high-speed single-cylinder four-stroke engine connected vertically at the rear. This was joined with a tubular steel frame and three wire-spoked wheels.

Benz Patent Motor Car Specs

With an engine speed of 400rpm, the engine production was at 0.55kW, had a 4.5-liter fuel tank, and driven at a maximum speed of 16km/h. For every 100km, the car used about 10 liters of fuel.

Built with an internal-combustion engine, this car had some awesome features. With an automatic intake slide, structured exhaust valve, high-voltage electrical vibrator ignition coupled with a spark plug and thermo-siphon evaporation cooling gas engine – a true beauty of the 19th-century!

Introducing the 1893 Benz Velo

Years prior to 1893, Benz created military transport like aircraft and warships. However, in 1893, Benz patented his design of the first double-pivot steering vehicle called the Benz Velo.

The Official Mercedes Company Logo

In 1909, the Mercedes company adopted the 3-pointed star as the emblem of the company. Each point of the star represented the transport modes which the company had created. Transport modes used on land, water, and in the air. It made sense for the official company logo to represent the mobility of cars, ships, and aircraft.

Thanks to Karl Benz’s phenomenal first car design, the auto world has only been one of absolute success!
