The Dos-à-Dos was a veteran automobile built by the German automotive firm Benz & Cie from 1899 to 1901. It succeeded the Viktoria and was later replaced by the Parsifal.

The vehicle was fitted with a 1710 or 2690cc four-stroke two-cylinder piston engine capable of generating between 5 and 10 bhp (3.7 to 7.4 kW) of output. It featured wooden-spoked wheels with solid rubber or pneumatic tires and solid axles with leaf springs. For suspension, the Benz Dos-à-Dos used a three-speed countershaft gearbox with reverse gear connected to the rear wheels by chains. It had a top speed of between 35 and 40 km/h. The vehicle weighed between 650 and 1300 kg, and measured 3300 mm long, 1850 mm wide, and 2200 mm high.

During production, a new example of the Benz Dos-à-Dos could be purchased in Germany for between 3800 and 7800 goldmark.
