The 29/60 PS was an automobile manufactured by the German automotive firm Benz & Cie from 1909 to 1914. It was a successor to the earlier 35/60 PS, and was eventually replaced by the 25/65 PS.

The 29/60 PS was fitted with a 7360cc four-cylinder engine capable of generating 60 bhp (44 kW) of output at 1400 rpm. Engine power was transferred from a leather cone clutch to a four-speed gearbox, and from there via a propeller shaft or on request chains to the rear wheels. The vehicle had a top speed of about 90 km/h and consumed approximately 27 litres of petrol per 100 km. It weighed between 1750 and 1950 kg, measured 4700 mm long, 1720 mm wide, and 2200 mm high, and rode on a wheelbase of between 3170 and 3400 mm.

The 29/60 PS was equipped with wooden or wire-spoked wheels and leaf-sprung rigid axles. A chassis alone costed 16,500 goldmark, but the car was offered complete as a double phaeton for 19,000 mark, and as a landaulet and saloon for 21,000 goldmark.
