The history of the automotive industry goes back more than a century and there have been models that have changed the world.

Until now, the invention of the automobile is considered as one of the greatest inventions of man because in most cases it meets many needs such as quiet, comfort, fast and reliable. . Because of the convenience it brings, the search and creation of cars is constantly evolving to satisfy the limitless needs of people.

2 – Ford Model T (1908)

The Model T is considered a breakthrough in bringing the engine to life in mass production on the assembly line of a single car with a single color. It sold in 1908 for the equivalent of about $20,000 today.

The next generation Model Ts were built in 12 countries on 4 continents with sales of about 15 million units. This is the car that is considered to bring the human world into the era of wheels.
