1895 Benz 5HP Phaeton

This enormous car could seat six people and had a 3.0-litre, single-cylinder rear-mounted engine. The crankshaft was not enclosed, rotating in the open, which meant that the car had to be stopped regularly so that it could be lubricated.

For many years the car was owned by the Royal Dutch Automobile Club (KNAC), and subsequently was added to the Louwman Museum collection. Since the 1970s the car has been a regular entrant in the London to Brighton Run.
