My SLS Black Series Meets the World's FIRST EVER CAR! Benz Patent Motorwagen Test Drive

Πριν 2 μήνες

I'm back with my SLS AMG Black Series in its home town of Suttgart, Germany for an experience to drive the first ever car in the world, the 1885 Benz Patent Motorwagen! After staying appropriately at the V8 Hotel, we have some noisy tunnels over to the Mercedes-Benz Museum before a visit to Affalterbach as well where there just so happens to be a new GT Black Series prototype to spot.
The V8 Hotel is located at the Motorworld in Boeblingen, just outside Stuttgart and alongside the assembly plants and customer centre of Mercedes-Benz in Sindelfingen. My last visit was earlier this year, the night before I then drove with the G63 and Tony from Turbo Transport to Schaltkulisse to collect the car before returning back to the UK. As such, it's fun to begin again in exactly the same spot ready for an exploration of the homeland of Mercedes.
The first destination is over to the Mercedes-Benz Museum for an experience with the Benz Patent Motorwagen, the first car ever to exist as long as 135 years ago. With 3 wheels, and powered by a 1 liter 1 cylinder engine, it makes a total of 2/3rds of a horspower! Upon arrival and pulling up the SLS AMG Black Series along side, on the same spot I filmed with the factory car last year, nobody over a century ago could have predicted that the same company might one day make machines like this.
After a short drive to see what it's like, and being kindly given an official driving license for the Patent Motorwagen, it's back into the SLS for a short drive to the home of AMG, and the exact location where the engine inside my own car was assembled. It just so happens also to be an opportunity to again see the AMG GT3 racecar, as well as coincidentally spotting a brand new GT Black Series out for testing but still with some camo on the bodywork.
Thanks for watching, Tim

My dream Shmeemobile meets the oldest of its ancestors! From the SLS BS to the Benz Patent Motorwagen in the hometown of Mercedes-Benz. Isn't it amazing to see them together, and the appearance of the new GT Black Series too...

There is a misconception here: the Benz Patent Motorwagen is the first recognized production car, true. But it has nothing really nothing to do with the SLS AMG. When the car was born, it wasn't meant for racing. The car was born merely as an utility vehicle. Despite the fact that it costed a fortune and was considered as just a toy for very rich people, it was just an utility vehicle, because the concept of racing itself did not exist. The birth of the sportscar, the idea of racing (running a car just for competition and enjoyment) and the motorsports in general is not very clear and discussed. I personally assume that the origin of the motorsports like we know them today came about 20 years later from Italy (with the Alfa Romeo brand).

Excellent! That wagon has a heck of a lot of history behind it. Mercedes must think you have a very special vlog to allow you to drive that wagon and to give you special treatment around their buildings. I will never be able to travel over to Germany so this video was great for me. Thx very much.👍👍

If it was the GTR PRO then it would be one of Mercedes Newest cars and oldest cars but the SLS was made around 125 years after the Patent Motorwagen. I would prefer the driving experience of the Patent Motorwagen because that is a lot easier to drive.
