  • 1901 Benz Ideal 7hp Twin Cylinder 'Contra-Motor'

    1901 Benz Ideal 7hp Twin Cylinder 'Contra-Motor'

    Extremely rare and highly coveted by collectors worldwide, only a small number of examples of this ground breaking car remain in private hands. As far as we are aware this is only the second time since the War that an Ideal ‘Contra-Motor’ has been offered for sale. Painstakingly restored with the utmost attention to detail, history would suggest this is an opportunity unlikely to arise again for a very long time.
