The 1886 Mercedes-Benz Patent Motor-Wagen is regarded as the first patented car in the world. With less than one horsepower, three wheels, a look similar to that of a park bench, and speeds of less than 20 mph, the car's performance is unimpressive by today's standards, but were admired in those times.

This machine only appears in Gran Turismo 4.


The car's performance is lacking; a quarter-mile time of 1'04.78 (just under rev limit), only 500 rpm, a top speed of 10-11 mph (when you hit the limit, it decreases to 4), and if you have a Dualshock 2 controller, the steering motion appears unnatural, more apparent than on other vehicles. The driving physics are also way off as well, as the car slides around if you turn too suddenly, whereas if you were to do the same in real life, you'd either break something, or flip over. All in all, a very unique and interesting vehicle.



This car can be won by winning the European Classic Car League. This car can only be used in Practice mode. It can't be used in the races. This car is not for sale in the Mercedes-Benz dealership.


  • It is the second oldest vehicle in the entire series, falling behind the Mercedes-Benz Daimler Motor Carriage 1886 by a few months.
  • The cars are also tied for being the slowest in the series.
  • Interestingly enough, if both cars are entered in races somehow, their fuel is not displayed, and their tires are always colored light green.
  • In Gran Turismo 4, the nitrous can't be applied on this car.
  • Despite being a Road Car In Gran Turismo 4, this car cannot be sold, only discarded from the garage.
  • In Gran Turismo Sport, a photo of this car can be seen at the Mercedes-Benz's Museum in Brand Central. However, the car itself does not appear as a playable vehicle in said game.
  • With the help of a glitch, this car can be used in Arcade Mode races. However, it will only face one opponent.
