Some of the well-known vintage cars featured on this jar are:
- Benz Patent-Motorwagen (1886): Designed by Karl Benz, the Benz Patent-Motorwagen is often considered the world's first car powered by an internal combustion engine running on gasoline. It had a three-wheel design and a top speed of about 16 km/h.
- Ford Quadricycle (1896): Before Henry Ford introduced the Model T, he built the Ford Quadricycle in 1896. It was a simple four-wheeled vehicle powered by a gasoline engine.
- These early vehicles mark the beginning of automotive history and represent the pioneer phase of the automobile industry. They were often experimental in nature and laid the foundation for the later development of cars.
- Panhard & Levassor (1894): The French automaker Panhard & Levassor produced one of the first commercially sold cars with an internal combustion engine in 1894. It had a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive vehicle design.
