4 Interesting Facts About Cars You Never Knew About


If you’re a customer or are passionate about cars, you’ll love this short list of entertaining facts about cars.

1. The first automobile was built in 1768.

That was exactly 248 years ago, or 3 centuries ago.

So it should come as no surprise when I tell you the first automobile was steam powered, and built by Nicolas Joseph Cugnot.

These types of steam powered vehicles that were built from that point on could go as fast as 38 MPH. And support up to 6 people per car.

Which is more than the average today. Of course, cars today are much better, faster and attractive. We’ve come a long way. 
2. It’s a criminal offense to drive around in a dirty car in Russia.

Yep, you read that right. It’s a criminal offense to drive around in a dirty car in Russia.

As extreme as it is, there’s one thing we can all agree on. And that’s the fact that nicer, cleaner looking cars are more attractive than filthy-looking cars. That’s for sure!

3. There are over 35 million cars driven in the UK.

In the UK there are more than 60 million people living here.

And out of those 60+ million people, 35+ million have registered a license to drive a car. That’s basically half of the population! So cars are a lot more popular than you’d think.

4. Ford is the best-selling car in the UK.

Ford Fiesta ranks among the top 10 selling cars in the UK, and comes in at number 1 on the list.

Over at The Car Sales Company we have around 9 Ford Fiesta’s for sale. Between the prices of £8,000 and £5,000. Or £183+ per month to £89+ per month on finance.
