Two people take credit for creating the first ever car, and they are Carl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler. Eventually the car companies that they both created merged to become the Daimler-Benz Company, which today produces Mercedez-Benz automobiles now over a century later.

Carl Benz was born in 1844, which was 10 years after Gottlieb Daimler. Both of the two inventors were mechanical engineers who initially worked developing the internal combustion engines that initially ran on liquid gasoline. They began installing the engines on bicycles, carriages and other vehicles with wheels that were normally powered by people or horses. Then the experiments began working quite well, the two inventors started improving the designs until they finally created what would become modern day cars.

Carl Benz had used a gasoline engine with one cylinder that was used to power a three-wheeled car in 1995, but it wasn't patented until 1886. This car had a tiller that was used to steer the front wheel. He began selling these cars in 1887. Gottlieb Daimler patented his design much earlier, in 1885. He was also notorious for creating the carburetor. He sold one of his early cars to the Sultan of Morocco in 1889. It was in 1926 that the two companies merged and became the Daimler-Benz Company.

It was later that other European and American inventors added more innovations to make other versions of the earlier automobiles. Emile Levassor was a French man, and also the first person to put the engine in the front of the car. This provided more powerful engines and power than those created by either Daimler or Benz. The Levassor engine also had two cylinders, and his automobile was shown off when it was involved with a 700 mile race in France, which he won by completing in 49 hours.

It is difficult to decide exactly who built the first petrol-driven car.
Gottlieb Daimler, a German, built his first petrol-driven motor-car in1887; in the same year, two Frenchmen patented a clutch and gearbox which were basically the same as those fitted, to the majority of English cars today. Nowadays, of course, some English cars have automatic transmission, though this modern feature is more popular in American cars. The first great English pioneer in the development of the car was F. W. Lanchester, who produced his first car in 1895. Two "modern" innovations incorporated in his car were pneumatic tyres and wire wheels. Development from this date on was rapid.

At first it was difficult to raise the interest of possible investors in the manufacture of cars. One young American inventor, Henry Ford, designed a car to be sold at a popular price. Motoring in its early days was the privilege of the wealthy, and Ford's experiment proved successful.. This led to the foundation of the world's largest car factory, the Ford plant, which proceeded to make comparatively cheap, reliable ears available 10 people all over the world. Henry Ford taught the motor industry is two principles of standardization and mass production.

The claim for making the first car or mechanical automobile is shared by  Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot  and Ferdinand Verbiest. There is a long list of people involved in making the actual car invention happen. The first vehicle though was invented by Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot which was a three-wheeler. You can find all the information on the history of cars from the following web page.

The first actual running car was built in France in 1769 and was run by steam power.  The prototype gasoline powered car didn't come along until 1893, and then several inventors entered the market with different autos over the years.  In 1899, the first electric cars came along.

The first horseless carriage, as they were called, were steam powered. In 1769, Frenchman Cugnot designed the first practical steam carriage but the boiler was too small to raise enough steam and the carriage had to stop repeatedly for water.

The early car designers then turned to gas as a source of powering their vehicles. Etienne Lenoir, another Frenchman, made an engine in which an electric spark jumped across a cylinder and ignited gas, but this was just as expensive as steam and didn't really catch on.

The Austrian Siegfried Marcus is credited sometimes as the maker of an early motor car, when he build a gas powered engine and fitted it to a four wheeled handcart in 1875. In 1885, an Englishman Edward Butler, ran a petrol drive tricycle, but the first real motor cars were made independently by two German engineers, Karl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler. Their names are now immortalised as types of modern car.

So you want to know who made the first car? Well I can't tell you. Just kidding. The truth is that I don't know. Just kidding again. Ford is credited with making the first car but this other guy that I can't remember the name of actually made the first car. His car was interesting because it was similar  to a carriage moved by horses, and it had three wheels similar to wagon wheels. So if you want to know who made the first car there you go. I take back the wagon wheel similarity the wheels were actually similar to bike wheels. Hope you enjoyed the answer

Well, people often get confused between Henry Ford and Karl Benz. Henry Ford is known for inventing the combustion engine and not the first car. Karl Benz invented the first car. Not really sure when and what car Karl Benz invented though.

A German named Karl Benz, he made a 3-wheeled bicycle/car in 1844. It used a belt to turn the wheels and keeps the gearbox balanced.
