World’s Oldest Car Headed For Auction.

de-dion-bouton-1.jpg

The catchy-sounding De Dion-Bouton et Trapardoux was built in France in 1884, and amazingly, it’s a three owner car. Among its many credentials, “La Marquise” is a steam-powered four-wheeled car that is believed to have won the first automobile race.

This car will be auctioned off at Pebble Beach in August. It is expected to bring in 1.5-2 million dollars. http://news.windingroad.com/body-stylesmarket-segment/convertibles/worlds-oldest-car-headed-for-auction/ -via Fark
