The Prinz-Heinrich-Wagen was a racecar manufactured by the German automotive firm Benz & Cie from 1908 to 1911. It was built as a reminder of Fritz Erle's victories at the 1908 Prinz-Heinrich-Fahrt (during which he drove a Benz 50 PS).
The car featured wooden-spoked wheels with pneumatic tires and solid axles with semi-elliptic leaf springs. It was fitted with a four-speed gearbox, which was connected to the rear axle via a propellor shaft.
