The 50 PS was a larger version of the 35/40 PS, and was manufactured by the German automotive firm Benz & Cie beginning in 1906. In 1907, a new model with a more powerful engine, the Benz 50 PS Sport was offered alongside it. From 1909 to 1910, the car became available as the 28/50 PS. It was subsequently replaced by the 25/55 PS.
The vehicle was fitted with a 7430cc four-cylinder engine capable of generating 50 bhp (37 kW) of power at 1400 min-1. Engine power was transmitted from a leather cone clutch to a four-speed gearbox, and from there via chains or a propshaft to the rear wheels, depending on what the customer ordered. It had a top speed of 90 km/h. The 1907 Sport model featured an 8016cc engine that also generated 50 bhp (37 kW), but only at 1500 min-1. It could reach speeds up to 115 km/h. The 28/50 PS weighed between 1700 and 1850 kg and rode on a wheelbase of 3145 to 3245 mm.
The car was offered as a double phaeton, saloon, and landaulet. A leaf-sprung chassis of the vehicle with wooden-spoked wheels and tires could be purchased for 25,000 goldmark.
