Karl Benz of Germany worked in a bicycle shop that manufactured static gasoline engines. He was the first to put these two together and filed a patent "Automobile Fueled by Gas". He sold Motorwagen Model 3 in 1888, making it the first commercially available car. Other German contemporaries, Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach working as partners, also worked on similar types of inventions, without knowledge of the work of the other, but Benz patented his work first, and, subsequently patented all the processes that made the internal combustion engine feasible for use in an automobile. In 1879 his first engine patent was granted to him and in 1886 Benz was granted a patent for his first automobile.
