1903 Mercedes 60hp

The Mercedes Simplex 60 hp was manufactured by Mercedes Benz in 1903 and 1904.

Its predecessor was the Mercedes 35hp which had been the fastest production car in the world. Unlike the 35 hp though, this wasn't a racing car and became Mercedes' top of the range model. It had a low pressed steel chassis and a cast-alloy 9.3L engine, giving a top speed of 65mph (105km/h). The car came with two or four passenger bodywork and only five still exist today.
