This is the oldest four wheel car in the world (if you consider it a car) that still runs!!! It’s steam powered and had a top speed of 38mph which seems way too fast for a car that was built in 1884. Its actual name is De Dion-Bouton et Trepardoux Dos-a-Dos Steam Runabout; way too long if you ask me. It seats four people sitting back to back and sitting underneath them is the water tank. It recently sold at auction for 4.6 million and throughout its life has only had four owners!
De Dion is the creator of the car but his own family didn’t support his experiments. They thought that he was wasting his time and actually filed injunctions on him. Despite his family’s lack of support, he succeeded in his creation and out of all the automobiles that came before and after; his is the one that is still on the road.
