The Benz Elegant was a passenger car built by the German automotive firm Benz & Cie from 1900 to 1902. It was the successor to the Benz Patent-Motorwagen Ideal and the predecessor to the Benz Parsifal.
The Elegant was fitted with a front-mounted 1090cc four-stroke single-cylinder engine that generated 5 to 6 bhp (3.7 to 4.4 kW) of output. It had wooden spoke wheels with solid rubber or pneumatic tires. The car was equipped with a four-speed countershaft transmission with reverse gear, which was connected to the rear wheels via chains. The vehicle could reach speeds up to 40 to 45 km/h.
Several two and four-seat bodies were available, including a tonneau and phaeton. During production, the phaeton was priced at around 7500 goldmark.
