The Patent Motor Wagon at the Scottsdale auctions

1886 KARL BENZ PATENT MOTOR WAGON RE-CREATION

Most recreations of old old cars are basically mechanical caricatures powered by lawn mower engines. This copy of the Benz Patent Motor Wagon is another animal animal entirely.

It was built by Mercedes Benz themselves and is much less a tribute than a piece by piece duplication. The source and quality put this out of my price/interest range. Or does it?

The reason I’m watching this is that it has no reserve. That means it could sell for $5, or it could sell for a million. My estimate is closer to five than the million but still higher than anything I could afford.

Any car museum in the world would be proud to display it. Anyone with a collection of pre 1900 cars should not be without it.
