About This Quiz

In the short matter of a century and a bit, the motor car has shown itself to be one of the world's greatest inventions. Karl Benz could not have known that his Benz Patent Autowagen would lead to vehicle transport as we know it today. Not just cars but pickups, SUVs, crossover vehicles, trucks and much, much more. Each and every one of them has their unique place in our daily lives, be it taking us from point A to point B, transporting goods across the country or even providing a little bit of recreational fun. 

We truly would be lost without them, wouldn't we? And they are complex beasts! That's for sure. Even those early vehicles! Even though they are nothing like today's vehicles, they were fairly complex in their own way. And today, modern cars have extremely complex engines which are all powered by computers to ensure they run as efficiently as possible, each and every time they are started.

So now the question is... can you complete ultimate car quiz? It is filled with questions about cars, the men and companies that made them. It also has a few questions about their inner workings! Think you can ace this? Let's see, shall we!
