Few people know the significance or reason for the celebration of World Automobile Day today. It all started when German Imperial Patent # 37435 was granted to the Benz Patent Motorwagen on the very same day 125 years back.


Happy World Automobile Day to all the T-Bhp automobile enthusiasts.

Today, 29th of January is celebrated as the World Automobile Day. It was on this day in 1885, the first motor car (a tri car) invented by legendary Karl Benz was patented.

The above tri car kept the foundation of the modern day cars, and today it has become the most important and common aspect in everyone’s life. The car has seen numerous phases of development and since years it has changed from a small three wheeled trotting machine to an evolutionary and hyper fast one.

The event went unnoticed by many enthusiasts. Even a google search till 29th yielded no results and the first find was by noon on that day. The number of sites swelled by the next day. Let us celebrate with all grandiose next year.
