This is rare footage of the world's first car's engine igniting & running.
After developing a successful gas-powered two-stroke piston engine in 1873, Karl Benz focused on developing a motorized vehicle. His Patent Motorwagen (or Motor Car), introduced in 1886, is widely regarded as the first purpose-built automobile, that is a vehicle designed from the ground up to be motorized. Benz unveiled it officially on July 3, 1886 on the Ringstraße in Mannheim, Germany. The vehicle was patented with German patent number 37435, which Benz applied for on January 29, 1886.

The Fiat 500 is nothing new, ...
The Fiat 500 is nothing new, I went to the 2012 SWULCS in Phoenix and saw Fiat 500's 600's Nash Metropolitans, Subaru 360's , BMW Isettas, a Vespa 600, Messerschmitts,Crosleys, and a couple of rare Hondas. All the cars were over 30 years old way before driving small was made cool by Charlie Sheen or J-lo. This is the Purist version with Boosted car audio so you can listen to those 2 strokes and 4 bangers hum. Special thanks to all those who attended and made this a truly magical Weekend.
