Benz Tropfenwagan

Designed by Professor Rumpler, this car was one of the most advanced of the postwar cars. The engine was mounted in the center of the car, the engine was a DOHC 6 cylinder and the car featured the first use of independent rear suspension. The cars placed fourth and fifth in the 1923 European Grand Prix.
