The first car ever vs the most challenging track in the world. This morning, since the automobile is going to be 131 years old, I took the old Benz for a test drive on the Nürburgring. I did the same thing with the 1886 Daimler in august. The Daimler is a little quicker than the Benz by 40 minutes. Anyways, I completed a lap with the Benz in 5 hours, 11 minutes, and 9 seconds.
