The first Porsche ever built is on display after languishing in obscurity in a barn for more than 110 years.

The P-1 was built by a 22-year-old Ferdinand Porsche in 1898 before being moved to an Austrian barn in 1902.

After being recently uncovered, it's now on display at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
