15 WEIRD AND WONDERFUL CAR FACTS

Our cars are special. They take us around day and night and protect us against the elements; in exchange, we wash our cars, take care of them, and fill them up with fuel (even if the fuel price makes it difficult sometimes). But when you dig a little deeper, you might be surprised to learn just how incredible they are; we know we were.

These are some of the brilliant car facts and trivia we learned.

 

  1. On average a car has 30 000 parts.

  2. 165 000 is the number of cars produced worldwide, daily.

  3. Of all the cars Rolls-Royce has ever built, 75% are still being used.

  4. It’s against the law to drive a dirty car in Russia.

  5. The person who invented cruise control was blind.

  6. Henry Ford made a car out of soya beans.

  7. Many new car engines are silent, but use speakers to create a fake engine sound.

  10. Only 35% of the world drive on the left side of the road.
