    I don't think that's true. None of his other inventions are anywhere close in complexity and sophistication to the car. The first bicycles weren't manufactured until the 1800s.

    I can't find anything about him regarding the invention of automobiles either. His name isn't even mentioned on the wikipedia page.

    I looked up "were cars invented in the 1700,s "and it was someone's opinion answer, must have been false
    I don't want cars anyway I just thought you might see him trying to invent a car when you meet him in the game

    Unlikely. The first wheeled vehicle to move under steam pressure (not a motorcar, since it had no motor) was invented before Franklin's birth, and the invention of the combustion engine came after his death.

    In reality, not even the inventors of the combustion engine managed to marry it with a carriage design as a land vehicle, and made a boat instead. It took other people to conquer the difficulties of getting the engine on the roads. If he was shown even attempting the build a car, he'd be having to invent both the combustion engine and the car at the same time, which would be too much of a leap.

    Looks like it. Well it would've been a cool idea if it were true (not that I'd want cars in the game).

    One would be the problem of seeing him trying to invent a car? Didn't leonardo try to invent an "air-plane"?

    I doubt that leonardo's plane worked for real but in the game we use it without problems, we even have a mortar in it LOL
