The 33/75 PS was an automobile manufactured by the German automotive firm Benz & Cie from 1912 to 1918. It was a successor to the 37/70 PS, and was eventually replaced by the 27/70 PS.

The 33/75 PS was fitted with an 8430cc four-cylinder engine capable of generating 75 bhp (55 kW) of output at 1400 rpm. A special model for sale in the United States in 1914 had a displacement of 6532cc and gave 90 bhp (66 kW) of output. Engine power was transferred from a leather cone clutch to a four-speed gearbox, and from there via a propshaft to the rear wheels. The vehicle had a top speed of about 98 km/h and consumed approximately 29 litres of petrol per 100 km. It weighed between 1850 and 2050 kg, measured 4700 mm long, 1720 mm wide, and 2400 mm high, and rode on a wheelbase of 3400 to 3500 mm.

The 33/75 PS was equipped with wooden or wire-spoked wheels and leaf-sprung rigid axles. A plain chassis could be purchased for 19,000 goldmark, but the car was offered complete as a runabout for 22,500 mark, and as a landaulet and saloon for 24,000 goldmark.
