The 35/40 PS was a middle-class automobile manufactured by the German automaker Benz & Cie from 1905 to 1907. It was a development of the earlier Parsifal 35 PS and was subsequently replaced by the 24/40 PS.
The 35/40 PS was fitted with a 5880cc four-cylinder engine capable of generating 35-40 bhp (26-29 kW) of power at 1350 rpm. Engine power was transferred 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 could reach speeds up to about 90 km/h. The 35/40 PS weighed approximately 1800 kg and rode on a wheelbase of between 3130 and 3268 mm.
This leaf-sprung vehicle with wooden spoke wheels and pneumatic tires was sold for 23,000 goldmark as a double phaeton, and 25,000 mark as a sedan and landaulet. A chain drive could be added to the vehicle for an additional 1000 mark.
