The development of the motor car can be traced back to 1769, when a French engineer Nicolas Cugnot invented the first steam powered car for use by the French army to haul heavy artillery. This start of the car history paved the way for further progress, and it is said that the modern automobile is the result of over 100.000 patents at various ages!
The invention of the car is one of the most influential inventions in the human history and a beginning of a colorful car history. Still it is kind of hard to decide who invented the first car in history. Not because there aren’t enough data on that subject but because it’s a bit hard to define what is already a car and what is only an attempt to invent one.
