About This Quiz

Can you imagine a world without the automobile? We certainly can't. Cars have become an integral part of our lives over the past 130 years or so.

Do you think those clever men that built the gas engine and then designed a car around it ever thought of the impact their invention would have? They surely knew that the car would be an important landmark in transport history.

In fact, way back in 2010, it was estimated that there were over 1 billion cars in the world, and that number would have grown even more a number of years later. Not only do they get us to our place of work, they help to transport our families in safety and for some of us, even contribute significantly to our livelihood and evening potential.

But the question we have for you today is - how good are you at identifying cars from the last 130 years? Do you think that you could see a single image and identify the correct car and model from just four options? Seems easy but it will test your auto knowledge to the limit.

So what are you waiting for! Let's see how many you can get right!

Good luck!
