A piece of automotive industry, the 1884 de Dion Bouton et Trepardoux Dos-a-Dos Steam Runabout is the world’s oldest car still running.
The car, only nine feet in length, features twin compound steam engines, takes 30 minutes to prepare before it can drive and requires watering every 20 miles. These are probably the main reason why the car is mainly used on country roads in Oxfordshire.
The 1884 de Dion Bouton et Trepardoux Dos-a-Dos Steam Runabout was sold last year for at an auction for $4.2m. Not a bad price for a 128 year old car! Watch the car in action below.
