Ok, since I would have been right about the last one, obviously a model, I pick real.

I'm guessing real.

If it's a model it's simply fantastic!

Heck, the real deal itself looks like a model in person :lol:

I loved it when the handlers were starting it up to drive it off the golf course (by rotating that big horizontal wheel w/their hands, just like someone cranking a propeller on an airplane to start it) telling us to stand back as it could and would sling oil out sideways.

It's real. If it were a model, then the builder would have to be a mutant.

ok, I'm late... B)

The problem is, I can't find the link to the photo! I don't remember where I found it. I forgot if it's real or model!!! B)

I'm pretty sure it's a full-scale reproduction of an 1886 Benz Motorwagen, sometimes referred to as the world's first automobile (although that claim is disputed by some). If I remember correctly, no actual 1886 Motorwagens are still in existence, and all the ones in museums these days are actually replicas... which would make this one not an original, but a full-scale reproduction, which makes it REAL!

Maybe someone else out there can confirm, but I'm pretty sure this one is REAL!

Next ROM coming Monday!

It's real, and you are correct, it's one of the full-scale replicas. It's such a simple design that it really is like a big model that actually runs. It was fun to see them actually drive the thing when I saw it displayed at Amelia Island. The car's handlers were even dressed in somewhat vintage looking Mercedes Benz corporate clothing. Attention to detail!

Thanks, Bob.

If anyone's interested, there are several videos of this thing on youtube, including one with the engine running. Not exactly Mercedes-like smoothness! B)

Our local auto museum has one of those replicas, and I've been told by staff members that there are indeed no originals in existence.
