The 8/18 PS was a middle-class automobile built by the German automotive firm Benz & Cie from 1910 to 1912. It was a development of the earlier 10/18 PS and was later replaced by the 8/20 PS.

The 8/18 PS was fitted with a 1950cc four-cylinder inline engine capable of generating 18 bhp (13.2 kW) of power. Engine power was transmitted from a leather cone clutch to a four-speed gearbox, and then from a propshaft to the rear wheels. The vehicle had a top speed of 62 km/h and consumed 14-15 l per 100 km. It weighed between 900 and 1100 kg, measured 3900 mm long, 1500 mm wide, and 2050 mm high, and rode on a 2850 mm wheelbase.

This leaf-sprung vehicle with wooden wheels and tires cost 6200 goldmark as a bare chassis, 7200 mark as a runabout, and 8800 goldmark as a sedan and landaulet.
