On January 29, 1886, Karl Benz filed a Patent No. 37435 at the Reich Patent
Office in Berlin - it is generally regarded as the birth certificate of the
automobile and became the first of over 80,000 patents to the Mercedes Benz
marquee. Benz' Patent Motor Car was equipped with a horizontal
single-cylinder four-stroke engine, which developed an output of 0.55 kW at
400 rpm from a displacement of 954 cubic centimeters. The vehicle's top
speed was 16 km/h. Happy birthday to the automobile and congratulations to
the company which today remains at the forefront of personal transportation.
