Along with the rapid development of the latest technology, the automotive world also experienced drastic progress. Every year, there are always new innovations issued in the automotive industry. For example, one of the advanced technology of the future car that can run alone without a driver, the car can change color, until the discourse of flying cars
This is certainly inseparable from the services of inventors in the era of tens or even hundreds of years ago as acting as pioneers and paving the way for the inventors of the next generation of automotive products to date. So, do all readers know the history of the development of automotive technology?
1. The first car in the world
The first automotive event began in 1885, Karl Benz created a real engine car for the first time in the world and was named the Benz Patent-Motorwagen. This motorwagen has a 4 stroke engine and is the first oil-fueled vehicle.
In addition, Karl Benz is also the inventor of automotive world components, such as spark plugs, transmission systems, car ignition, carburetors, and water radiators. According to historical records, oil-fueled cars were also not only created by Karl Benz.
In the near future, Maybach and Gottlieb Daimier also made cars with the same ability and the first gasoline. Only, Karl Benz first patented his innovative work in 1886.
2. The First Motorcycle in the World
In addition to the discovery of the first oil-fueled cars in the world, Gottlieb Daimier and Wilhelm Maybach in 1885 also managed to leave history in the automotive world, namely its services in the discovery of the world’s first motorcycle.
These two German engineering experts named their invention as Reitwagen. But it turns out that the first motorcycle in the world is not traded.
After several years passed precisely in 1893, Wilhelm Hildebrand and Henry developed the invention of Reitwagen and then this motorbike was then able to be marketed and sold to the public.
In the process, Henry and Wilhelm Hildebrand worked with Alois Wolfmuller and Hans Geisenhof. The engine technology implemented in Reitwagen is still used today, namely the twin-cylinder water-cooled, 4 steps 1,488 cc.
The maximum speed that can be taken by Reitwagen is only around 48 km / hour. Because Reitwagen is the first motorcycle in the world, it’s certainly natural that the speed isn’t too high.
