110 year-old electric car (12 Pics)

A real automotive rarity went under the hammer at Bonhams over the weekend with the only known 1905 Woods Queen Victoria Brougham selling for DKK632,500 (US$94,548). Part of the Frederiksen auction at Ebeltoft, Denmark on September 26, the electric vehicle acts as a window into the early days of motor cars when new technologies fought for supremacy on the roads and in the show rooms.
Saturday's sale is a reminder that in the automotive world, gasoline was not always king and that, even before the advent of today's lithium-ion powered supercars, electric vehicles weren't always the exclusive province of milkmen and nervous little old ladies.
