The Benz 60 PS was a larger variant of the concurrent 50 PS, and was manufactured by the German automotive firm Benz & Cie from 1906 to 1910. It eventually became available as the 35/60 PS in 1909. The vehicle was replaced by the 29/60 PS upon the end of its production.
The 35/60 PS was originally fitted with a 9240cc four-cylinder engine capable of generating 60 bhp (44 kW) at 1350 rpm. Engine capacity was decreased to 8885cc in 1908, and in spite of this, the vehicle retained its initial performance. Power from the engine was transferred from a leather cone clutch to a four-speed gearbox, and from there via chains to the rear wheels. The vehicle had a top speed of approximately 95 km/h. It weighed between 1750 and 1850 kg and rode on a 3130 to 3350 mm wheelbase.
The 35/60 PS was offered as a double phaeton, landaulet, and saloon. A leaf-sprung chassis of the vehicle with wooden spoke wheels and pneumatic tires could be purchased for 27,000 goldmark during its production.
