      World-class collection in a World-class museum

      Daimler Wagonette

      Name: Wagonette
      Make: Daimler
      Year: 1898

      This is one of the oldest cars to have been built in Coventry, a year after the Daimler Company was founded.  It was made at a factory in the Drapers Field area of Coventry and would have cost  £373.

      The body is made of wood and the style is a ‘Phaeton’.  Phaeton was a God in Greek mythology, who drove the ‘chariot of the sun’ too fast.  So Zeus, the king of Greek Gods, struck him with a lighting bolt to stop him setting the world on fire.  Phaeton style carriages are seen as sporty and meant to be driven fast.
